ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays used a walk-off homer from Casey Kotchman to pull out a 2-1 victory over the Royals on Monday in front of 10,742 at Tropicana Field.

The winning shot was hit off Kansas City right-hander Blake Wood on the first pitch of the ninth inning.

Jeremy Hellickson helped set the victory up. He turned in 7 1/3 innings, allowing just one run on six hits, but received the no-decision. The rookie hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in a start since June 10 against Baltimore.

SAN FRANCISCO -- As rare as it was to see Ryan Vogelsong falter at AT&T Park on Monday night, the Giants' 5-0 loss was hardly anything new.

Vogelsong gave up five runs over five innings against the Pirates, taking his first loss in 13 starts and snapping his career-high six-game winning streak. Pittsburgh entered the series opener on a 10-game losing streak, but San Francisco has been nearly as familiar with the loss column lately, having dropped nine of its last 11 and 12 of its last 18.
