Ryan O’Hearn’s ninth inning throwing error gifted the Rays with the winning run as the Royals lost 4-3.  Tampa Bay swept the four-game series.  Danny Duffy allowed two Rays’ runs on six hits and two walks over five innings in a no-decision in his first start since coming off the disabled list with a shoulder impingement.  Alex Gordon had two hits, drove in one run, walked, stole two bases and scored a run in defeat.
