MLB: Kansas City 2, Oakland 0

June 1, 2012 at 11:03 PM

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 1 (UPI) -- Felipe Paulino allowed three hits in six innings Friday and three relievers gave up one walk the rest of the way, bringing Kansas City a 2-0 win over Oakland.

The Athletics lost their ninth straight game while the Royals have won three in a row, one short of their longest winning streak of the season.

Yuniesky Betancourt had an RBI double in the first and then scored on a single by Mike Moustakas. An outstanding pitching performance made those two runs stand up for Kansas City's fourth shutout of the year.

Paulino (3-1) walked three and struck out five before giving way to the bullpen.

Kelvin Herrera, Greg Holland and Jonathan Broxton worked an inning each, combining to strike out four without yielding a hit. Broxton earned his 12th save.
