Royals Vs. Cardinals Final Score: Kansas City Edges Out St. Louis, 3-2

The Kansas City Royals had a strong pitching performance by Vin Mazzaro who pitched six shutout innings to help the Royals to a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Royals offense got to Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse by scoring a pair of runs in the second and third innings, and then another run in the seventh inning.

The Royals had a 3-0 lead and it was nearly blown by Roman Colon who gave up a pair of runs in only 2/3 of an inning to make it a 3-2 game. Jose Mijares came into relief for Colon and did not allow any more runs to close out the inning.
