#Chiefs get two more as Kelly crushes one and almost kills a girl by the inflatables with a mammoth blast. Chiefs up 4-1 in the rain end 4.— Kevin Capie (@KevinCapie) May 18, 2013

Tyrell Jenkins pitched 5 solid innings allowing 4 hits on 1 earned run, 0 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Jenkins induced 8 groundouts-to-2 flyouts. His outing was cut short due to a rain delay he only threw 62 pitches going into the 6th inning. From reports it seems Jenkins is doing a better job keeping the ball down and throwing his sinking fastball to get ground balls and is mixing in his improved curve-ball which has been one of the reason to his recent success.
Joe Donofrio ate 3 scoreless innings in relief.
Zach Petrick pitched the scoreless 9th while striking out a batter.
