KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Eugenio Suarez clubbed a tiebreaking three-run home run shortly after Nick Castellanos hit a tying solo shot and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Kansas City Royals 6-2.

Suarez hit a 1-1 pitch off the Royals Hall of Fame in left field to give his team a three-run lead in the seventh inning.

The homer was his 17th of the season and came off Kyle Zimmer against his first batter of the game.

Vladimir Gutierrez went six innings and gave up two runs, five hits and two walks with six strikeouts.
