Adam Wainwright scattered three runs and 12 hits over eight innings as he upped his mark to 7-3. Edward Mujica closed it out for his 15th save. Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer drove in a run each for the Royals, who have lost six straight and 10 of their last 11. James Shields yielded six runs in six frames as he fell to 2-6.
