Royals avoid sweep, beat Tigers 5-2
(KANSAS CITY) - Despite being only two games above .500 and facing a 6.5-game deficit against first-place Detroit, the Kansas City Royals believe they have their rivals right where they want them. Judging by recent history, maybe they do. A five-run seventh inning keyed by Omar Infante's two-run single and an RBI double from Eric Hosmer enabled the Royals to avoid a demoralizing four-game sweep against the Tigers on Sunday with a 5-2 win. Four of the seventh-inning runs were charged to Justin Verlander (8-8), who started the inning with a two-hit shutout but loaded the bases on three straight singles. Verlander gave up six hits in 6 1/3 innings, struck out three and walked one. Since June 18 when K.C. beat the Tigers for their 10th straight win and went a season-best seven games over .500, the Royals have gone 9-14 while the Tigers went 17-6. Rajai Davis and Austin Jackson opened the third with back-to-back singles and the Tigers took a 2-0 lead on Miguel Cabrera's sacrifice fly and a two-out bloop single by J.D. Martinez, which fell in between shortstop Escobar and left fielder Ibanez as Jackson came around from first.


Cleveland tops Chicago 3-2
(CLEVELAND) – Yan Gomes made sure the Indians went into the All-Star break on a positive note. Gomes drove in all three runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning, and Cleveland rallied for a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Gomes' blast to right off Javy Guerra (0-2) came after the White Sox scored two runs in top of the inning to take a 2-1 lead. Nick Swisher led off with a single before Gomes, who also had an RBI single in the second, hit a 1-1 pitch into Chicago's bullpenn. Bryan Shaw (4-1) allowed two runs in the top of the eighth. Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 12th save, striking out the final two hitters. Gordon Beckham's RBI single tied the game before Leury Garcia's hit to center put Chicago ahead, but the White Sox couldn't hold the lead for their fourth loss in five games. The Indians head into the All-Star break with a 47-47 record. John Danks allowed one run in seven innings. The White Sox threatened throughout the game, but didn't score until the eighth. Conor Gillaspie singled with one out, took second on a wild pitch and scored on Beckham's single up the middle. White Sox All-Star shortstop Alexei Ramirez was out due to a stiff back, but is expected to play in Tuesday's All-Star game in Minneapolis. The loss sent Chicago into the break with a 45-51 record.

Braves top Cubs 10-7
(CHICAGO) - Chris Johnson can rest easy during the All-Star break. He earned a couple days off. Johnson had three hits, including his third homer in two days, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Chicago Cubs 10-7 on Sunday to keep pace with Washington at the top of the NL East. Johnson hit a long drive to straightaway center field for a three-run shot in a four-run third inning against Travis Wood (7-8). Johnson also went deep twice in the Braves' 11-6 victory at Wrigley Field on Saturday. Atlanta (52-43) has won three of four since a four-game losing streak. It heads into the break one percentage point behind the division-leading Nationals, who won 10-3 at Philadelphia. The Braves played without struggling second baseman Dan Uggla, who was suspended by the team for the series finale at Chicago. Atlanta announced the punishment on its Twitter feed, with no further explanation, and Gonzalez called it an "internal matter." The last-place Cubs (40-54) have lost eight of 10. Arismendy Alcantara and Chris Coghlan each hit a two-run homer off All-Star Julio Teheran (9-6). All Star Craig Kimbrel hen worked the ninth for his 29th save in 33 opportunities.
