Mejia homered off starter Tim Melville (3-2) after a leadoff double by Humberto Arteaga in the first inning. He later doubled after Arteaga was hit by a pitch in the sixth. Both eventually scored.

Kansas City first baseman Lucas Duda continued his rehab assignment with the Chasers, going 1 for 4 with a single as designated hitter.

Bubba Starling went 2 for 3 to raise his batting average to .341. He entered the game ranked 10th among the PCL’s batting leaders. Mundell is the league leader.
