Fillmyer, Royals beat Cubs 9-0
(KANSAS CITY) – Heath Fillmyer used a hockey mentality to get a baseball milestone Wednesday night. Fillmyer allowed three singles over seven innings for his first major league win, Adelberto Mondesi and Drew Butera each drove in three and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago Cubs 9-0. Anthony Rizzo drilled Fillmyer (1-1) with a line drive on the left heel on his third pitch, but Fillmyer stuck around and didn't allow another hit until David Bote and Tommy La Stella singled with one out in the seventh inning. Mondesi belted a 2-0 pitch from Jose Quintana for a three-run homer in the seventh. It was Mondesi's fourth home run and his first since July 15. Butera hit a two-run, two-out double with the bases loaded in the second inning and added a sacrifice fly during a four-run eighth. Jorge Bonifacio, Brett Phillips and Hunter Dozier each had two hits and a walk and combined to score seven runs. Bonifacio had an RBI double in the eighth, while Phillips contributed an RBI triple. Quintana (10-8) dropped to 3-10 in 25 starts against the Royals. He was removed after Mondesi's homer, giving up five runs on six hits and two walks.
