Alex Gordon and Chris Getz each hit bases-loaded triples and the Kansas City Royals rallied to beat Philadelphia 13-4 Friday, spoiling the Phillies' home opener.

After getting a total of 17 hits in their first three games against the Chicago White Sox, the Royals had 19 against the Phillies. 

Eric Hosmer was 4 for 5 with three RBIs.

Domonic Brown and Erik Kratz hit solo homers for the Phillies, who are off to a 1-3 start.
