The Kansas City Royals withstood an impressive performance by Cincinnati designated hitter Alvaro Saavedra to defeat the Reds, 6-5, at Great American Ball Park. Saavedra was 3 for 5 with a double and 2 singles. Tom Misner closed the door for Kansas City, picking up his 9th save of the year. Kansas City now has a record of 26-20 with the win.

Kansas City first baseman Noel Kok contributed a timely at-bat in the top of the fourth. With two down, he hit a fastball into right field for a run-scoring single. It was his 62nd hit of the season and put the Royals ahead, 6-1.

"Our guys are never satisfied," said Kansas City manager Connor Gould.
