The home runs were Kratz's first two as a Royal after joining the team in a July 28 trade with the Blue Jays. Kratz's first home run extended the Royals' lead to 4-0 in the seventh, and his second came in the ninth inning to make it a 6-1 game. Including his time with the Jays, Kratz has five home runs, 12 RBI, and a .234/.258/.426 slash line in 97 plate appearances. Aug 18 - 11:35 PM
