The inspired effort of Houston catcher Josh Evans was not enough to prevent a 6-5 loss to the Kansas City Royals. Evans was 2-4 with a double, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once. The Royals saw their record improve to 73-55.

The Royals got a big boost from right fielder Kyle Tucker who had a run-scoring ground out in the top of the fifth inning off Astros hurler Lucas Giolito. It was his 44th RBI of the season and put Kansas City on top, 5-4.

"Say want you want about this team, they play nine innings hard," said Kansas City manager Patrick Harmon.
