Tigers 2, Royals 1

DETROIT — Anibal Sanchez pitched seven sharp innings, and the Tigers ended the Royals' 10-game winning streak to avoid a four-game sweep and pull within a half-game of the AL Central-leading Royals. Sanchez kept the Kansas City offense quiet even though he had no strikeouts for the first time in his career. Struggling closer Joe Nathan struck out the side in the ninth. "This doesn't end anything," Kansas City's Billy Butler said. "We've got 10-1 in our last 11 games, and we're going home in first.''
