Blue Jays 7, Royals 3
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mark Buehrle pitched into the seventh inning, Juan Francisco and Colby Rasmus each hit home runs and the Blue Jays avoided a series sweep. Buehrle worked through plenty of trouble to last 62/3 innings. It was a solid bounce-back performance after the left-hander was hammered for seven runs. The Royals' Jeremy Guthrie left trailing 4-3 after six innings, and the bullpen was unable to keep it close as their three-game win streak ended.
