CINCINNATI -- The Royals' batters weren't fazed by a lengthy rain delay before the first pitch, with all of their run production coming right away in Wednesday night's 4-3 win over the Reds.
Following a delay of 1 hour, 37 minutes, the Royals put together six hits for four runs in the opening two innings at Great American Ball Park. Ben Zobrist got the scoring going with an RBI double and Eric Hosmer added an RBI single to push another run across in the first inning. Lorenzo Cain tacked on two more in the second with a single that proved to be the decisive blow.
