Royals’ offense disappears again in 2-0 loss to the Nationals

Monday night, for the third time in four nights, the Royals were shut out, this time in a 2-0 loss to the Nationals in the first game of a three-game home stand. Royals batters mustered just five hits against Washington starter Gio Gonzalez and a cavalry of relievers. The quiet production from the Kansas City offense nullified a solid effort from Edinson Volquez, who allowed two runs while pitching into the eighth inning.
