KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Brendan Harris and Delmon Young drove in
two runs apiece and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays snapped an eleven-game
losing streak with a 6-to-5 win over the Kansas City Royals.
The Devil Rays ended the longest losing streak in the majors
this year. It was their longest losing streak since a 12-game skid
in 2004 that also ended in Kansas City.
James Shields is 7-and-4 with the win. He opened the season
6-and-0. He went seven strong innings but faltered in the eighth
when the Royals scored three.
Gary Glover came in to pitch the ninth in place of closer Al
Reyes, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a mild rotator cuff
strain. Glover gave up John Buck's solo homer and an infield single
before getting his first major league save since 2002.
