Giambi overpowers Royals
KC swept away by Yankees
Zack Greinke allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings -- with five of those runs and two of the hits coming on home runs by Jason Giambi. The Royals offense mustered just one run until Mike Sweeney's two-run home run in the eighth inning, but it was too little, too late for Kansas City in the finale.
