The Royals got a big at-bat from catcher Deivi Grullon. For the game, Grullon went 2 for 6 with 2 singles. In the bottom of the 15th, with a runner on 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 33rd hit of the season gave Kansas City a 3-2 lead.

"I just try to see the ball and put a good swing on it," said Grullon.
