Royals-Yankees: Zack Greinke Paces KC Victory

Courtney BrameContributor IApril 11, 2008

The Kansas City Royals defeated the Yankees 4-0 on Wednesday night when Zack Greinke threw eight scoreless innings at Kauffman Stadium.

Greinke walked and struck out two, which lowered his earned run average to 0.60. This was the first game since August 27, 2007, that the Yankees were shut out (Detroit).

By the end of the night, the Yankees had four doubles: by Jose Molina and Alex Rodriguez with two out in the fourth; by Alberto Gonzalez with two out in the fifth; and by Johnny Damon with two out in the eighth.

The Yankees have scored two runs in their last 19 innings and 25 runs in 9 games this season.

The Royals have lowered their American League-best ERA to 2.25 and have won back-to-back games over the Yankees for the first time since May-June 2005 at Kauffman Stadium.

With 6 wins and 3 losses, it looks like the Royals are going to have a promising season.
