The Kansas City Royals overcame a good performance by Oakland designated hitter Casey Gillaspie to knock off Oakland, 6-4, at Kauffman Stadium. Gillaspie was 2-3 with a home run and a walk, while adding 4 RBI and scoring once. Ángelo Valdéz went 6 innings for Kansas City to pick up the win. The right-hander was charged with 4 earned runs. He scattered 3 hits, while walking 4 and striking out 10. His record improves to 1-0. Hyeon-Jong Yang, credited with the save, is now 6 for 7 in save opportunities.

Jonathan Mejía had a clutch at-bat with one out in the bottom of the sixth for the Royals. Coming up with runners on 2nd and 3rd and Kansas City trailing 4-3, he hit a 2-run double.

"We'll put this win in our pocket and go after the next one," said Mejía.

Today's win puts Kansas City at 24-36, while Oakland falls to 28-32.
