Chris Getz's infield single in the ninth inning put Kansas City ahead, and the Royals held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 Wednesday.
Joaquin Benoit (0-1) gave up a double to Mike Moustakas, who
advanced to third on a groundout and scored when Getz hit a
grounder that was too deep into the hole for shortstop Jhonny
Peralta to make a strong enough throw.
Tim Collins (1-0) got Prince Fielder to fly out to the warning
track in left and struck out Ryan Raburn in the eighth for the
victory after Detroit tied the game on Brennan Boesch's two-run
Jonathan Broxton gave up a one-out single and got Andy Dirks to
ground out into a game-ending double play for his fourth save in
five chances for the Royals.
