David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

What a comeback by the Royals! They score three runs in the bottom of the ninth off Jonathan Papelbon to snap the Nationals' four-game win streak. Mike Moustakas came off the bench for a big two-run pinch-hit single and then Lorenzo Cain drove in the winner with a liner in the gap on an 0-2 pitch.

Hochevar encouraged by elbow progress

Given the weekend off after experiencing tightness in his elbow on Friday night, Royals reliever Luke Hochevar said the ailment has since subsided. "Just normal stuff," Hochevar said after a side session on Monday. "That’s really it. … No lingering effects." Kansas City Star

Royals had a wretched week

And it shows in the rankings with a three-spot slip. A 1-5 week in which KC continued to move toward the AL cellar in runs per game isn't doing anyone any good. Week 4 Power Rankings

Miley, Seager lead Mariners past Royals 6-0

Wade Miley scattered five hits for his first career shutout, Kyle Seager hit a three-run homer to cap a four-run first inning and the Seattle Mariners took a 6-0 win over Kansas City on Saturday.

Jim Caple ESPN Senior Writer 

Mariners, who beat KC 1-0 last night on just one hit (a Seth Smith homer) are up 4-0 after two first inning hits -- another Smith solo shot and a three-run blast by Kyle Seager.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Mariners get one hit -- a Seth Smith home run -- and beat the Royals 1-0. The Royals go 0-for-11 with runners in scoring position, Leonys Martin crashes into the wall to catch the final out and Felix Hernandez ties Jamie Moyer for most wins in Mariners history. Oh, and there was a controversial call against the Royals in the ninth.
