KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jorge Bonifacio hit a three-run homer with two outs in the sixth inning to help the Kansas City Royals to a 4-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.

Bonifacio's homer, his 17th, came off Archie Bradley (3-3) with Paulo Orlando and Ramon Torres aboard.

Right-hander Jake Junis (9-3) allowed two runs on five hits, including A.J. Pollock's home run in the sixth, to pick up the win. Junis' nine victories are tied for the American League lead for rookies.

David Peralta's fifth-inning double scored Rey Fuentes, who walked and stole second, with the first Diamondbacks' run.

Arizona right-hander Taijuan Walker was pulled after five innings in his final start before the postseason. He allowed three hits and one run, while striking out six and walking one.
