KANSAS CITY -- Starting pitcher Felipe Paulino has held the opponent scoreless in four of his six starts, and that's unusual for a Royals pitcher.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only three other pitchers in the franchise's 44-year history have had such a stretch. Zack Greinke did it five times (including some overlapping sequences) in his Kansas City tenure. Mark Gubicza did it in 1989 and Roger Nelson in 1972.

Paulino has another streak going. He's held opponents hitless in their last 22 at-bats with runners in scoring position.
