Royals Vs. Diamondbacks Final Score: Kansas City Loses Pitcher's Duel 2-0

The Kansas City Royals struggled for offense on Sunday and suffered a 2-0 shutout loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Nate Adcock made the emergency start for the Royals who are dealing with injuries to its starting rotation. Adcock pitched well throwing five innings while allowing five hits and one run. Arizona scored its first run on a safety squeeze from shortstop John McDonald that scored Paul Goldschmidt. Arizona added an insurance run in the eighth on a sacrifice fly from Justin Upton.

Kansas City's offense was all Jeff Francouer and little else. Francouer went 4 for 4 in the game while the rest of the Royals combined to go 3 for 29.

Wade Miley picks up the win for the Diamondbacks pitching seven innings while allowing six hits and no runs. Adcock takes the loss and J.J. Putz picked up his ninth save of the season with a perfect inning to close it out.
