KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jeremy Guthrie pitched into the eighth inning, Jarrod Dyson drove in two runs off Zack Greinke and the Kansas City Royals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Monday night to end a four-game losing streak.
Dyson, the Royals’ No. 9 hitter, went 3 for 3 and stole two bases. Salvador Perez hit a solo home run, and Lorenzo Cain and Alcides Escobar two of the players acquired by the Royals in the trade that sent Greinke to Milwaukee in December 2010 drove in a run apiece.
Greg Holland served up a homer to Adrian Gonzalez in the ninth before earning his 22nd save.
