Royals Trivia Fact:  Houston third baseman Matt Dominguez and KC’s Mike Moustakas were high school teammates in California (Moose played shortstop in high school).  The pair became just the sixth set of high school teammates to be selected in the first round of the same draft.  Moustakas went second overall to KC, Dominguez was selected 12th by the Marlins.
