Royals prospect Daniel Mateo was named to the Midwest League All-Star team on Wednesday. Mateo, an infielder with Low-A Kane County, is batting .305 on the season with four home runs and 33 RBIs.
While most of the focus on Tuesday was on Greinke's first start at Kauffman Stadium since being traded to Milwaukee, there was another first at The K for a Brewers pitcher. Reliever Francisco Rodriguez allowed his first run in Kansas City after 12 2/3 scoreless innings. The run counted as the game-winner, saddling Rodriguez with the loss.
