Royals end Tigers' win streak at 6

KANSAS CITY - Billy Butler drove in two runs, Kansas City's bullpen pitched 41/3 scoreless innings, and the Royals ended the Detroit Tigers' six-game winning streak with a 7-5 victory last night.

The Royals had 11 hits and a rare strong performance from their bullpen to win consecutive games for the first time since July 27-28 against Baltimore.

Yasuhiko Yabuta (1-1) allowed two hits in 21/3 innings for his second career victory, Roman Colon pitched a perfect eighth, and Joakim Soria survived two hits in the ninth for his 23rd save.

The Tigers scored five runs off Royals starter Bruce Chen but went through six pitchers and had two costly outfield miscues.
