Branyan, Lopez lead Mariners past KC 11-6

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Ichiro Suzuki had his major league-leading 52nd multi-hit game and Russell Branyan and Jose Lopez drove in three runs apiece to lead the Seattle Mariners to an 11-6 victory Wednesday night over the Kansas City Royals.

Everyone in the Seattle lineup had a hit and only two failed to score as the Royals' home record since the All-Star break dropped to 1-10.

Luke French (2-2) worked five innings in his first start since being acquired from Detroit by the Mariners and gave up four runs on nine hits, including two-run home runs by Alex Gordon and Billy Butler, who also had an RBI single.

Kyle Davies (3-8) had a nightmarish start on the day he was called up from a successful six-week stint in AAA.
