Royals throw it away
Photos
Mariners 4, Royals 3
Kyle Davies went seven innings, giving up three runs on six hits on Sunday. (AP)
In a tie game in the ninth, the Royals defense let down closer Joakim Soria. With Adrian Beltre on third, Soria fielded a ground ball hit by Willie Bloomquist, catching Beltre in a rundown. But catcher John Buck threw the ball away, letting Beltre score the go-ahead run, spoiling Mike Aviles' 3-for-4, two-RBI day.
