MINNEAPOLIS, July 30 (UPI) -- Mike Moustakas smacked a pair of homers Tuesday, backing a strong start from Ervin Santana in the Kansas City Royals' 7-2 win over Minnesota.

Moustakas' three-run blast in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie and his solo shot in the eighth put the Royals ahead 5-2.

Eric Hosmer went 3-for-5 with an RBI double while Miguel Tejada added two hits, including a run-scoring single, as the Royals took the opener of a three-game series.

Santana (7-6) recorded a third straight start of allowing two or fewer earned runs, surrendering a pair of tallies on four hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out eight.

Twins starter Mike Pelfrey (4-9) was touched for four runs on eight hits over four full frames.

Joe Mauer, returning to the lineup after missing six games while on paternity leave, drove in a run for Minnesota.
