The Royals are out of first place for the first time in 2003 after yesterday’s 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays. Rookie Kyle Snyder got the loss in his first decision of the year, allowing four runs over 6 1/3 innings. Desi Relaford got the Royals on the board with an RBI grounder in the first inning. The Blue Jays made it 4-1 with homers in the second and sixth innings. Ken Harvey’s RBI double cut the lead to 4-2 and Carlos Beltran’s homer in the ninth got it to within a run. The loss drops Kansas City out of first place for the first time this season. Minnesota’s 3-2 lead over Chicago moves the Twins into the top spot. The Royals are off Monday after playing 20-straight games without a day off. Tomorrow they’ll be in Seattle.
