Game Date: September 4, 2008
Royals 9, A's 6 / Box Score
WP: Davies (6-6), LP: Meyer (0-4), SV: Ramirez (1)

Royals Record: 60-79

The Royals jumped all over A's starter Dan Meyer in the first inning of this one. They scored four runs on four hits. Jose Guillen singled in a run. Billy Butler doubled in a run. Alberto Callaspo sacrificed in a run. So did John Buck.

The Royals struck again for one in the third and three more in the fourth on RBI triples from Esteban German and Mile Aviles. Guillen also drove in another run with a single.

Kyle Davies wasn't exactly sharp. He threw 101 pitches in five innings, but he only allowed one run. Hillman used six relievers to finish the game. Robinson Tejeda gave up three runs and Kip Wells gave up two, but it didn't matter.

Tonight, the Royals begin a new series at home with the Indians. Brandon Duckworth (2-0, 4.91) will go up against Anthony Reyes (4-2, 2.93). Duckworth is 1-0 in his career against the Indians with a 2.84 ERA in 6.1 IP. Reyes is 2-0 against the Royals with a 1.69 ERA in 10.2 IP.
