Dozier collects 5 hits, Benintendi 3 RBIs in Kansas City Royals’ 14-10 win over Rockies

By Lynn Worthy

DENVER — A Kansas City squad went to Denver and scored two touchdowns in a victory, yet Patrick Mahomes was nowhere to be found.

This time, the Kansas City Royals were the ones handing out disappointment to fans in the Mile High City.

Royals slugger Hunter Dozier enjoyed a career day at the plate with five hits, while Andrew Benintendi had three, including a home run, and drove in three runs as part of a 14-10 win over the Colorado Rockies in front of an announced 35,176 in the series opener at Coors Field on Friday night. In the process, Dozier also surpassed 400 career hits.

The Royals matched their season-high for runs in a game (eight) by the end of the fifth inning. Their 14 runs were their most since June 4, 2021, against the Minnesota Twins.

Royals center fielder Michael A. Taylor went 3 for 4 with a walk, two RBIs and a run scored, while Salvador Perez (2 for 5, run, RBI) and Whit Merrifield (2 for 5, two runs, two RBIs) also had multi-hit performances.

Perez tied former teammate Alcedes Escobar for ninth place on the franchise’s all-time leaderboard for multi-hit games (320). Ryan O’Hearn came off the bench and hit a mammoth 445-foot home run, his first of the season for the Royals (11-19).

Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke tied Burleigh Grimes for 50th place on the franchise all-time starts list (495).

Greinke also passed Bud Black for 26th all-time in games played (216). Greinke went 4 2/3 innings and allowed seven runs (five earned) on eight hits in a no-decision. He matched his season high with four strikeouts.
