Raul Ibanez swats homer, Jeremy Guthrie stymies Oakland in 1-0 Royals victory

The eldest member of the Royals settled into the batter’s box against the youngest member of Oakland’s pitching staff. Raul Ibanez cocked his head and trained eyes on Sonny Gray. The 24-year-old already overran the 42-year-old with fastballs before dusting him off with a changeup. Second time up, Gray challenged Ibanez with a 93-mph fastball at the belt. Ibanez rifled it over the fence in right-center, a solo home run and the lone bit of scoring achieved in this 1-0 win by Kansas City.
