Betancourt briefly gave the Royals the lead in the 14th with a RBI double.

Kansas City used eight different pitchers with closer Jonathan Broxton picking up the win while allowing two hits and a run in two innings of work. Luis Mendoza got the start and was solid allowing two runs and six hits in six innings of work.
