Royals beat Blue Jays, at .500 for first time since April

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ��� The Kansas City Royals had been 0-29 when trailing after eight innings. That changed Friday night.

Whit Merrifield hit a two-run, two-out double that capped a four-run rally in the ninth inning, and the Royals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Friday night to reach .500 for the first time since April.

"You always want to be up with the game on the line," Merrifield said. "That's why you play the game. It's not always going to happen the way it did tonight, but it is fun when it does."
