Jakob Junis takes a no-hitter into the seventh inning, and Royals pound out 13 hits in big win

JUNISThe Seattle Mariners had a rough Sunday, with a game being cancelled at Minnesota because of cold and the threat of snow and then the trip out of Minneapolis before the expected storm hit.

Monday wasn't much easier.

Kansas City pounded out 13 hits and Jakob Junis pitched 6 1/3-innings of no-hit ball as the Royals beat the Mariners 10-0 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

Dan Vogelbach broke up Junis' no-hit bid with a seventh-inning single.

Mike Moustakas went 3 for 5 with three RBIs and two runs scored for the Royals. Moustakas gave Kansas City a 2-0 lead with a first-inning double and hit an eighth-inning homer off utility player Taylor Motter, who came on to pitch.

The Royals jumped on starter Marco Gonzales, who gave up eight hits and four runs in 2 1/3 innings. They led 9-0 after four innings.

Dee Gordon had Seattle's only other hit.

The Mariners (4-4) and Kansas City (3-5) play again at 5:15 p.m. PT Tuesday. Felix Hernandez pitches opposite Eric Skoglund.

Ryon Healy flew back to Seattle for an MRI on his ankle, which he hurt in a postgame workout on Saturday. Nelson Cruz, Mike Zunino and Ben Gamel remain out with injuries.
