Moustakas hits Royals' record 37th HR in 15-5 rout of Jays

(TSX / STATS) -- TORONTO -- Mike Moustakas set a club record for home runs in a season and Jakob Janis won his sixth straight decision as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 15-5 on Wednesday night.

Moustakas hit his 37th homer in the four-run sixth inning to surpass the former team mark for a season set by Steve Balboni, who hit 36 in 1985.

Whit Merrifield and Salvador Perez, who had three RBIs, also homered for the Royals (74-77), who ended a three-game losing streak.
