Kansas City, Mo. • The Royals' Jeremy Guthrie held down Wil Myers and the Tampa Bay Rays over five innings and Kansas City rolled to an 11-1 victory Monday in the makeup of a snowed-out game from early May.
Guthrie (13-10) allowed six hits and three walks but twice delivered timely strikeouts. He fanned Kelly Johnson with two aboard to end the third inning, and then struck out David DeJesus on a called third strike to leave the bases loaded in the fourth.
Rays manager Joe Maddon argued that the call and was tossed by plate umpire Greg Gibson.
Jeremy Hellickson (10-8) allowed five runs in just 2 2-3 innings for Tampa Bay. It was the struggling right-hander's shortest start since June 30, 2012, when he went the same distance in a game against Detroit before getting pelted in the leg by a line drive.
