The Royals failed to score last night, and if you do not score, then you do not win.

A 1-0 victory for Arizona followed a tenth-inning homer off the bat of Chad Tracy, and the KC loss spoiled a good outing from Zack Grienke.  Grienke went seven innings, giving up three hits and seven walks while striking out five.

Yasuhiko Yabuta (1-2) was charged with the loss.

Mark Grudzielanek, Alex Gordon and Joey Gathright picked up six of the Royals seven base-knocks, but timely hits avoided KC’s lumber.  They mustered just one hit in the game’s final three innings.
