The Kansas City Royals scored all of their runs on sacrifice flies in a 4-1 victory over Cleveland yesterday. The Royals became only the second team to score four runs all on sacrifice flies since it became an official stat in 1954. The Expos did it in an 8-4, 14-inning loss to the Cubs in May 1980.
The Tampa Bay Rays snapped a club-record 31-inning scoring drought en route to beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 last night. Tampa Bay won for just the second time in 16 games after having been shutout in its previous three contests. The Rays had scored 35 runs over the previous 15 games.
