  • Description

    The Kansas City Royals baseball team remained in contention in the American League Western Division of the Major Leagues on Wednesday (6 August) with a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Twine. Minnesota is a long way back.

    The Kansas City attack was highlighted by a 3-run home run off the bat of Tony Solaita in the 4th inning. Earlier, John Mayberry knocked in one run with double. That erased Minnesota's early 3-0 lead.

    The win gave Kansas City pitcher Steve Busby his 15th win of the season against 8 defeats. It was also the 15th time this year he remained on the mound during the entire game. He struggled to do it, though, and gave up ten hits to Minnesota.

    The win was the 11th in the last 14 games since the team's new manager Whitey Herzog took over.

    Bert Blyleven was credited with the loss, his 6th of the season against 10 wins.

    Kansas City is now in second place in the Western Division 6 1/2??? games behind Oakland. Minnesota is in 5th place.
