Greinke gets 'W'

Royals 3, Pirates 2
David DeJesus (right) is greeted by third-base coach Dave Owen during his homer trot.  (AP)
A 59-minute rain delay cut Zack Greinke's start short at 6 1/3 innings, but he settled for his 10th win -- good enough for a tie of the Major League lead. Greinke allowed two runs -- one being charged after the delay -- and had his ERA rise to 1.95. David DeJesus led the support, homering in the fourth and plating a run in the fifth.
