Greinke pitches 1-hitter, Royals beat Seattle 3-0

SEATTLE (AP) - Zack Greinke pitched a one-hitter, allowing only a second-inning single by Kenji Johjima, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Seattle Mariners 3-0 Sunday.

Greinke (13-8) retired the final 22 batters after Johjima's two-out single up the middle.

Greinke leads the majors with three shutouts and six complete games, and his 2.32 ERA is best in the AL. He walked one and struck out five in the best low-hit game of his career - he pitched a three-hitter on April 24 against Detroit.
