Nelson Velázquez slugs 3-run homer in the 7th inning, Royals rally past Mariners 4-2

SEATTLE (AP) — Nelson Velázquez hit a three-run homer in the seventh inning to put Kansas City ahead, and Michael Wacha worked six dominant innings as the Royals beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2. Velázquez’s third homer of the season spoiled what had been a strong outing for Seattle starter Logan Gilbert. It all fell apart for Gilbert (3-2) in the seventh as Bobby Witt, Jr. led off with a walk and reached second on a Vinnie Pasquantino groundout to second base. Salvador Perez then reached on an intentional walk, and scored two batters later when Velázquez sent a 398-foot blast to left field. Maikel Garcia added to Kansas City’s lead with an RBI single in the eighth. Luke Raley homered for Seattle.
