PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Zack Greinke didn't allow a run until making
his final pitch before a rain delay in the seventh inning, and the
Kansas City Royals kept the Pittsburgh Pirates from sweeping an
interleague series for the first time since 2001 by winning 3-2 on
Sunday.
David DeJesus hit a solo homer off Charlie Morton (0-1) and
drove in two run to support Greinke (10-3), who gave up seven hits
in 6 1-3 innings ahead of the 59-minute delay. Greinke became the
AL's fourth 10-game winner, striking out three and walking none
while lowering his major league-leading ERA to 1.95 during a second
successive effective start.
The Royals, ending 8-10 against the NL, halted a three-game
losing streak.
