KC's Jeremy Guthrie out-pitches Oakland's Sonny Gray, but not by much

The series opener between the Royals and the Athletics turned out to be a classic pitching duel between Jeremy Guthrie and Sonny Gray. Both pitchers were sharp from the start; each threw four scoreless innings to open the game. Both Gray and Guthrie did a good job of stifling their opponent’s offense by being aggressive, staying ahead in the count and forcing hitters into tough counts. It was a tightly contested, exciting game that was clearly going to be a low-scoring duel, decided by a small margin of error.
