Zack Greinke struck out 10 batters and allowed just six hits for his second shutout in four starts as the Kansas City Royals downed the Chicago White Sox 3-0 on Monday.
More than 6,500 fans bought walk-up tickets - pushing the attendance over 21,000 - to watch Greinke become the major league's first six-game winner.
The right-hander baffled the White Sox all night, working inside and out, up and down, slow and fast. Greinke (6-0) didn't walk a batter, dropped his ERA to 0.40 and pushed his majors-leading strikeout total to 54 during his third complete game of the season. A.J. Pierzynzki and Scott Podsednik each had two hits for the White Sox.
Red Sox 6, Yankees 4: Jon Lester matched a career high with 10 strikeouts, and Mike Lowell and Jason Bay homered as Boston held off New York in a rain-delayed game that ended at 1:10 a.m.

Mets 6, Braves 4: Carlos Beltran hit a pair of two-run homers and David Wright added a two-run shot of his own as the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 6-4 in the National League on Monday to match their 2008 total for wins at Turner Field. The Mets, who went 1-8 in Atlanta last season, improved to 30-63 at Turner Field since the start of the 1998 season.
Beltran, hitting .400, was 2 for 3 with a walk. The two homers gave him four this season.
John Maine (2-2) earned his second consecutive win despite setting a career high with six walks. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth for his sixth save. Javier Vazquez (2-3) gave up a season-high six runs in 6 2-3 innings. Chipper Jones homered for Atlanta.
