Soler and Dozier Homer Twice as Royals Cruise Over Tigers

Comerica Park’s spacious outfield has frustrated hitters many times over the years.

It hasn’t been a big deal for Hunter Dozier and Jorge Soler this season.

Dozier and Jorge Soler each homered twice Sunday, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 10-2 for a split of the four-game series between the worst teams in the AL Central.

It was Dozier’s third career multihomer game, all of which have come on the current road trip. He hit two against the Twins on Aug. 2, and then duplicated the feat Thursday in the series opener in Detroit.

Soler went deep four times in the final three games of the series. He now has 35 homers, three behind Mike Moustakas’ team record of 38.

Whit Merrifield led off the game with a home run for the second time in three days. The trio combined for 10 homers in the series.

The Royals won their second in a row after losing six of seven. Last-place Detroit fell to 7-23 since the All-Star break.
