CLEVELAND -- Storm Davis pitched a five-hitter for his first shutout since 1985 and Kirk Gibson homered for the third straight game, as the Kansas City Royals beat the Cleveland Indians, 6-0, last night.
It was the fourth time the Indians have been blanked in 12 games this season. They are 1-4 at home.
Davis (2-1) pitched his first complete game of the season and only his third in the last five years, walking none and striking out four. His last shutout was a three-hit, 6-0 win against Seattle on Aug. 30, 1985, while with Baltimore.
Davis is 10-2 lifetime against Cleveland, including 6-0 at Cleveland Stadium.
Gibson had three hits, including his fifth home run, a bases-empty shot in the fifth inning. Warren Cromartie also had three hits, including an infield single that started the Royals' four-run second inning.
