Royals' Jason Hammel: Works seven strong for fourth win

Hammel (4-6) allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out four over seven innings in a win Monday against Boston.

Hammel was extra efficient, as he didn't walk a batter and induced nine ground balls en route to using only 91 pitches to get through seven innings. After struggling to find his footing to start the season, Hammel has now delivered four consecutive quality starts in June, lowering his ERA from 6.18 to 4.83.
