KANSAS CITY -- The two runs scored against Greg Holland by the Mariners to win Friday night's game, 7-5, was a rare occurrence for the Royals' closer.

Holland had not given up more than one run in an outing since April 6, 2013, a span of 95 appearances. That game was in Philadelphia and he surrendered three runs.

The Mariners' runs also snapped a string of 16 consecutive scoreless appearances, dating to May 5 at San Diego when the Padres' Jedd Gyorko hit a solo home run.
