Jason Vargas took a shutout into the ninth inning, Alcides Escobar hit a three-run double and the Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays, 4-2, Monday night at Kansas City, Mo., in a game that included two significant injuries.
Rays starter Matt Moore (0-2) came out in the fifth inning with a sore left elbow. The All-Star lefty grimaced after throwing a pitch to Norichika Aoki and was immediately removed by manager Joe Maddon.
Two innings later, Royals second baseman Omar Infante was hit in the face by a pitch from reliever Heath Bell. Infante left the game under his own power with Kansas City trainers Nick Kenney and Kyle Turner.
