KANSAS CITY -- Much like they have all season, the Royals simply don't know when to quit -- with two out that is.
Like they did in a four-run, ninth-inning uprising on Sunday to beat the Red Sox, the Royals' two-out attack rose up again on Monday night by scoring seven times in the sixth inning en route to an 8-3 win over the Orioles.
Kansas City now has scored 220 runs this season with two out -- only Boston has scored more with 239.
And it all started with Mike Moustakas' two-run homer that tied the score at 3.
"It's awesome," Moustakas said. "Just shows the resilience of this team. We never quit, never give up. We were able to keep that rolling. After that, everybody seemed like they were getting hits. Salvy [Salvador Perez] with a hit and Omar [Infante] later on with the big triple, ended up coming in on the error.
"That's what this offense is capable of. We never quit, you can do a lot of damage with two outs and I think we proved that tonight."
After Moustakas' homer came a single, double and then Infante's two-run triple which resulted in another run when he scored on a throwing error. Suddenly it was 6-3.
