Jared Koenig pitched into the sixth inning for his first career win and combined with three relievers on a three-hitter, helping the Oakland Athletics beat the Kansas City Royals 4-0 Sunday to end an eight-game home losing streak.
The Royals stranded six runners in scoring position and were shut out for the ninth time this season. Still, the Royals got their first series victory this past weekend in over a month.
The Royals continue their west coast swing Monday as they open a three-game series at Los Angeles. First pitch is set for 8:40 central. Coverage starts at 8 on KFEQ Radio (680, 95.3). Kris Bubic will start on the mound.
