BALTIMORE (AP) -- Jeff Francoeur and Billy Butler hit home runs,
and Alcides Escobar had two hits to lead the Kansas City Royals
over the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 on Sunday.
Francoeur had a terrific series, hitting 7 for 12 against the
Orioles, including two homers. Butler had home runs in successive
games for the Royals, who won two consecutive games for the first
time since a four-game winning streak from May 12-15.
Baltimore's Adam Jones, whose six-year, $85.5 million contract
extension was officially announced before the game, extended his
career-long hitting streak to 18 -- longest in the majors this
season, with a fifth-inning double.
Tim Collins (2-0) was the winner with 1 1/3 perfect innings in
relief of Kansas City starter Luke Hochevar. Brian Matusz (4-5) had
a three-game winning streak ended, allowing four runs -- three
earned -- and seven hits in six innings.
