Braves 4, Royals 3
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kris Medlen outpitched the Royals' Ervin Santana over seven innings, Jason Heyward hit a go-ahead homer and the Braves bullpen hung on in Atlanta's first visit to Kansas City. Braves closer Craig Kimbrel walked Mike Moustakas and gave up a single to David Lough to start the ninth but rallied to strike out Elliot Johnson and Jarrod Dyson. Kimbrel intentionally walked Alex Gordon to load the bases then got Alcides Escobar to fly out to right on the first pitch.
