Bennett Lifts Royals to 8-4 Win
Benefiting from Sam Bennett's productive game, the Kansas City Royals downed the Detroit Tigers, 8-4. Bennett was 2 for 3 with a home run, a double, and 2 walks, while scoring 4 runs for the Royals. Willie Anderson, who went 8.1 innings, was the winning pitcher. He was charged with 3 runs on 7 hits, while walking 2 and striking out 8. His record now stands at 7-5. The first-place Royals, at 53-38, now lead their division by 2˝ games.

Cam Love dealt the Tigers a blow in the top of the fourth. Batting with the bases loaded and Kansas City leading 1-0, Love, who is rated as the 65th best prospect by BNN, hit a 1-1 fastball for a 2-run single.

"We swung the bats pretty good throughout the lineup," said Kansas City skipper Patrick Harmon.
