Greinke Stifles Twins' Bid to Get Closer to Detroit
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Zack Greinke worked out of several jams in seven innings to bolster his AL Cy Young Award chances and Yuniesky Betancourt hit a three-run homer, helping the Kansas City Royals win their home finale 4-1 over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.

Greinke (16-8) worked out of a bases-loaded jam with no outs in the third inning and escaped two other tight spots to drop his baseball-best ERA to 2.06. Joakim Soria got the final six outs, inducing a groundout by Joe Mauer with two on in the ninth for his 29th save in 32 chances.
