KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Wade Davis came off the family emergency leave list and pitched six solid innings, Billy Butler homered and the Kansas City Royals beat the Miami Marlins 6-2 Monday night.
The Royals won for the 17th time in 20 games, while the Marlins are 1-8 in their past nine.
Davis had not pitched since August 2, returning to Florida to be with his family after the death of his stepbrother August 3.
Davis (6-9) allowed two runs and six hits while striking out three and walking two.
Marlins starter Tom Koehler (3-8) held the Royals hitless until two out in the fourth, when they pieced together four straight hits.
