Tampa Bay loses to Royals 9-5 on game-ending grand slam

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Good thing Brad Boxberger had already gotten his All-Star nod from Royals manager Ned Yost.

The Rays closer was summoned in the ninth inning of a tie game Tuesday, promptly loaded the bases, and then served up Paulo Orlando's first career grand slam to give Kansas City a 9-5 win over Tampa Bay in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

The flop came less than 24 hours after Yost, who will serve as the AL manager in Cincinnati, picked Boxberger as one of the relievers to fill out his pitching staff.
