The Multi-Hit Game Report

by Bill Chuck on September 2, 2013

The Kansas City Royals need every victory they can get so the seven innings of three-hit shutout ball that James Shields tossed in the KC 5-0 victory over the Jays was a lifesaver for this team that has gone 8-12 in their last 20 games.

Eric Hosmer drove in three runs going 2-for-5 for the victors.
