Troy Glaus Hits The Game Winner For The Braves, Royals Lose 5-4

The Royals lose number two to the Braves.

Down 4-2, the Royals manufactured a pair of runs in the 7th to tie the game. Greinke had a rocky start in the first inning but held strong to go seven innings in all.

Blake Wood came on in the 8th and, after giving up a double to the leadoff man, held strong and pushed it to the 9th before Robinson Tejada entered promptly giving up the game-winning home run to Troy Glaus.

  • Here's some of the good for the Royals:
  • Scott Podsednik and Jason Kendall had a pair of RBIs
  • David DeJesus continued his hot streak going 3-for-4
  • Greinke went seven innings
  • Blake Wood held strong in one inning of relief

The Royals will wrap things up against the Braves tomorrow. For more on the game, check out Royals Review.
