Bryan Bullington, the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2002, threw eight crisp innings for his major league win, leading the Kansas City Royals to a 1-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday.

Bullington (1-2) allowed two hits, walked one and struck out five to outpitch A.J. Burnett (9-10) who yielded four hits and one run in eight innings. Joakim Soria finished the two-hitter, extending his club record with his 26th consecutive save.

Alex Rodriguez, who homered in his final three at-bats Saturday night, slammed a Bullington pitch to deep center leading off the second inning, driving Gregor Blanco almost to the wall. But A-Rod went down quietly the rest of the way.
