Morales got the Royals going with a two-run single down the left-field line in the first inning. That brought the Royals within 3-2.
Morales also singled and scored in the fourth, and he singled and scored in the sixth.
Then came a big moment during the Royals' six-run seventh: Morales came up with the bases loaded and a chance to hit the 100 mark on the head with a grand slam. But his drive to deep left hit off the wall and Morales settled for a two-run double.
"I didn't get my arms extended so I didn't think it was a grand slam," he said. "I hit it really good, but I just didn't get extended."
It seemed as if Morales had broken into his home-run trot. Not the case, he said.
"No, I just thought it was a sacrifice fly," he said. "I thought it was an out."
