Mariners Shut Out By Royals, 3-0

Posted: Updated:
KANSAS CITY, Missouri -- Kyle Davies matched a career high with eight strikeouts in eight innings and combined with closer Joakim Soria on a four-hitter, lifting the Kansas City Royals to a 3-0 victory over the struggling Seattle Mariners on Monday night.

Davies (7-7) worked quickly and efficiently against the Mariners, getting ahead in the count with fastballs, then dropping in curveballs and change-ups to keep them off-balance.

Soria worked a perfect ninth for his 38th save in 41 chances, giving the Royals their fourth straight victory.
