KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Luke Hochevar tossed his second career
shutout, Eric Hosmer homered and Yuniesky Betancourt drove in three
runs to lead the Kansas City Royals to an 8-0 rout of the Tampa Bay
Rays on Monday night.
Alcides Escobar and Alex Gordon both had three hits for the
Royals, who were coming off an embarrassing sweep at the hands of
St. Louis in which they were outscored 30-14.
Hochevar (5-7) provided some much-needed rest for their weary
bullpen.
The mercurial right-hander struck out eight while walking only
one in his second straight dominant outing. The same starter who
had been allowing a run per inning earlier this season has gone 16
2-3 innings without allowing anybody to cross home plate.
Alex Cobb (3-4) managed his first career complete game for Tampa
Bay, allowing 13 hits in falling to 1-4 in his last five starts.
