MIGHTY MOOSE

As Kansas City's once-anemic offense has surged, scoring seven or more runs in each of its last five games entering the weekend, so has Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas. The left-handed hitter, who is a free agent after this season, entered a weekend series with the Los Angeles Angels hitting .400 (20 of 50) with five home runs and 16 RBIs in June. Moustakas already has 18 home runs for the season, four away from his career-high of 22 set during Kansas City's World Series championship season of 2015, and his 42 RBIs put him well on pace to top his career-best of 82.
