KANSAS CITY -- Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie benefited from a fantastic play by center fielder Jarrod Dyson in the fourth inning against the Dodgers on Monday.

Dyson used his elite speed to track down a Yasiel Puig drive to straightaway center that promised extra bases off the bat. But Dyson robbed Puig as he crashed into the wall at near full-speed, securing the final out of the fourth.

Guthrie also received a superb defensive play from first baseman Eric Hosmer to end the second.

Hosmer made a diving stop to his left on an Andre Ethier hot shot down the line, quickly rose and dived to the bag, narrowly beating Ethier for the final out.
