Royals Gain Ground In Wild Card Chase

Associated Press - September 16, 2013 10:54 pm

Trevor Bauer pitched 6 1/3 innings as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 5-0 on Saturday night.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – James Shields kept the Indians off balance for six innings, Salvador Perez led a scrappy Kansas City offense and the Royals pounded Cleveland 7-1 Monday night to open a three game set with significant playoff implications.

Shields struck out a season high 10 for the Royals (79-71), who moved within 2 1/2 games of the AL’s second wild card berth. The Indians (81-69) remained a half game back of Texas, which lost to Tampa Bay earlier in the night in a matchup of teams leading the wild card race.

Shields (12-9) allowed only Lonnie Chisenhall’s solo homer before turning the game over to his stingy bullpen. Wade Davis, Luke Hochevar and Tim Collins did the rest in a steady drizzle.

Scott Kazmir (8-9) gave up four runs in 5 plus innings for the Indians. He didn’t get a whole lot of help from his offense, which racked up a season high 17 strikeouts.
