Royals 3, Tigers 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jeremy Guthrie pitched impressively into the seventh inning, Salvador Perez hit a two-run triple and the Royals beat the Tigers 3-2 Monday night for their sixth straight victory.

Guthrie held Detroit to a two-run homer by Miguel Cabrera in 61/3 innings in helping Kansas City extend its longest winning streak since it won seven straight in September 2011.

The Royals are 7-2 in June after going 8-20 in May. The pitching staff has a 1.44 ERA in June.

Kansas City improved to 8-3 since George Brett was named the interim hitting coach May 30.

Perez's one-out triple in the third scored Alcides Escobar and Eric Hosmer after they each singled. Lorenzo Cain's two-out infield single scored Perez with the go-ahead run.

Doug Fister fell to 0-3 in five starts since a victory May 14 over the Astros.

Aaron Crow replaced Guthrie in the seventh after he gave up a single to Avisail Garcia and he hit Andy Dirks with an 0-and-2 pitch. Crow retired Torii Hunter on a fly to shallow right and struck out Cabrera to end the threat.
