SEATTLE — Ty France had five hits, including a three-run homer, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals 13-7.

Royals reliever Jake Brentz walked four straight batters to open the eighth inning.

His bases-loaded free pass to Julio Rodriguez allowed Donovan Walton to score the go-ahead run.

Jesse Winker then drove in two runs with a double to make it 10-7 before France homered to center field.

France, who had five RBIs, became the first Mariners player with five or more hits in a game since Dee-Strange Gordon on May 1, 2018.

Seattle had seven extra-base hits. J.P. Crawford launched a two-run homer in the first.
