Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Mike Moustakas homered to lead off the 13th inning, lifting the Kansas City Royals to a 7-6 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday.
    
Moustakas homered to right on an 0-2 pitch from Chance Ruffin (0-1), who had not pitched in the majors since 2011.
    
Louis Coleman (3-0), the eighth Kansas City pitcher, retired the only batter he faced in the top of the 13th.
    
Kansas City rallied from five runs down and led 6-5 in the ninth inning before Raul Ibanez homered off Greg Holland into the Mariners' bullpen with two outs to tie the score. It was Holland's first blown save since May 6 to end his streak of 31 consecutive saves.
    
Billy Butler went 5 for 5, matching his career high in hits for the Royals, while Emilo Bonifacio went 4 for 6 for his first four-hit game since July 4, 2009.
