Royals lose pitcher duel to Texas 1-0

17 July 2017, 12:18 | Todd Saunders

Cain, who had battled the sun on a few chances Sunday, lifted one high into right that Choo lost in the sunlight, glancing off his glove and allowing Gordon to trot in with the winning run.

After Kelvin Herrera (2-2) pitched a 1-2-3 ninth, Alcides Escobar singled, Alex Gordon walked and Salvador Perez hit into a fielder's choice.

Talk about home cooking.

Merrifield was hit by a pitch because that's what a gamer does, then Jorge Bonifacio struck out swinging, making it two-down, two aboard for Cain. For the season as a whole, Cain is slashing.273/.344/.432 with 11 homers, 31 RBI and 15 steals in 85 games.

Kansas City came right back with a run in the fourth when Eric Hosmer walked and Mike Moustakas drove him in on a double to deep right. Drew Butera singled and scored on Whit Merrifield's double and a Nomar Mazara error in left. Darvish, who made the All-Star team but did not pitch in the exhibition on Tuesday, will go for his first win in more than a month when he opposes Kansas City right-hander Ian Kennedy on Sunday.

Mazara's two-out single scored Elvis Andrus, who had doubled. When Darvish fanned out Brandon Moss in the fourth inning it was his 940th strikeout in his 120th start.
