PEORIA, ARIZ. (AP) - Seattle’s struggling pitching staff gave up more than 15 runs for the second consecutive day in a 17-12 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.

A day after getting tagged for 16 runs by the Los Angeles Angels, Mariners pitchers allowed 22 hits and a nine-run inning to the Royals. Alberto Callaspo went 4-for-6 with three doubles and scored three times. Coco Crisp and Billy Bulter each had three hits as Kansas City finished with 11 extra-base hits.

Seattle starter Jarrod Washburn was rocked for seven runs and nine hits in the first two innings, although Kansas City starter Zack Greinke wasn’t any better.
