Greg Holland picks up one-out save against Rockies
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals closer Greg Holland picked up a one-out save against the Rockies Tuesday.

Holland was brought into the game to put out the fire. The Royals entered the ninth up by five runs, but nearly melted down. With two runs already plated, and two men on base, Holland was brought in to finish out the game. He induced a fly out against the only batter he faced to end the threat. It was Holland's 39th save of the season.

James Shields turns in a strong start Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher James Shields turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Rockies.

Shields gave up two runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Shields proved to be hittable early on. After giving up two singles to open the game, Shields induced a run-scoring double-play. Nolan Arenado would also single during the frame, but Shields was able to work around it. Arenado would come back to haunt Shields in the fifth, hitting a solo home run to left center. Shields threw 94 pitches during the start.

With the win, Shields improved the 12-6. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
