Royals Rally, Then Lose To Tigers

Associated Press - September 15, 2013 3:44 pm

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

DETROIT (AP) – Alex Avila homered twice, including a tie breaking solo shot in the eighth inning that lifted the Detroit Tigers over the Kansas City Royals 3-2 Sunday.

Detroit’s Max Scherzer struck out 12 in seven innings, but was denied his 20th victory when Kansas City tied it off Drew Smyly (6-0) in the eighth. Avila answered in the bottom half with a homer to right center.

Joaquin Benoit pitched the ninth for his 20th save in 20 chances for the AL Central leading Tigers.

Jeremy Guthrie (14-11) pitched all eight innings for the Royals, who began the day 3 1/2 games back in the AL wild card race.

Avila’s first homer was a two run shot in the second. Alex Gordon hit a solo homer for Kansas City in the fourth.
