• Royals rout Rays in makeup of May snow-out

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Aug 26, 2013
    Billy Butler went deep as part of a perfect day to lead the Royals in an 11-1 rout of the American League Wild Card-leading Rays in front of a small but loyal crowd of just under 5,000 fans on Monday afternoon in a makeup game of their snowed-out May 2 tilt. The Royals' Jeremy Guthrie held down Wil Myers and the Tampa Bay Rays over five innings and Kansas City rolled to an 11-1 victory Monday in the makeup of a snowed-out game from early May. The Royals have now won back-to-back games after snapping a seven-game losing streak, and they trail the A's by 6 1/2 games for the second AL Wild Card spot. It was the struggling right-hander's shortest start since June 30, 2012, when he went the same distance in a game against Detroit before getting pelted in the leg by a line drive.
