Bannister settles too late
Mariners 4, Royals 0
Prior to Wednesday's start, Brian Bannister had a first-inning ERA of 1.50. (Charlie Riedel/AP)
 DeJesus' single
After a four-run first inning, Brian Bannister went on to retire 13 of the 14 Mariners he faced until the top of the sixth. The right-hander ended with seven innings of work and didn't allow a run after the first, but the Royals' offense couldn't get anything rolling against opposing starter Jarrod Washburn.
