Royal foil: KC downs Tribe
Sabathia's effort for naught

Zack Greinke pitched three impressive innings in a spot start for the Royals. Equally impressive was Kansas City's bullpen, which allowed just one run in six innings, as left-hander John Bale picked up his first win. Esteban German and Emil Brown each picked up an RBI in the win.
