Nottingham's slam helps Brewers rally to beat Royals 9-5

Nottingham's two-out blast to left off Danny Duffy (3-4) capped a six-run rally in the fourth inning that put the Brewers ahead for good.

Kansas City took an early lead off Brewers starter Adrian Houser as the first three batters of the game all scored.

The Brewers extended the lead to 9-4 when Arcia homered to left center off Royals reliever Jake Newberry with two outs in the fifth.

Duffy was pitching for the first time since getting scratched from a scheduled start Tuesday after missing the Royals' team flight to Detroit.

ROYALS: Kansas City manager Mike Matheny says there's a possibility outfielder/designated hitter Jorge Soler could play again this season.

The Brewers acquired pitchers Brandon Ramey, Juan Geraldo and Israel Puello as part of the Aug. 31 trade that sent reliever David Phelps to the Philadelphia Phillies.
