Royals Shut Out Yankees
Emil Brown homered in the sixth to knock out Yankees' starter Mike Mussina, who left after five-plus innings, allowing four runs on eight hits in his first start since being activated from the disabled list. The Royals tacked on a final run on a Mark Grudzielanek sacrifice fly in the seventh.
Jorge De La Rosa pitched five and two-thirds shutout innings for the Royals, but left with an injury. Todd Wellemeyer earned a rare three-inning save in relief as he and De La Rosa combined to blank the Yankees on eight hits.
The third game will decide the series between the Yanks and Royals Wednesday night. Runelvys Hernandez takes the mound for the Royals against Randy Johnson.
