Royals aim for repeat performance against Cards

For one night, the Kansas City Royals bucked their season-long trend of giving up homers and not being able to hit them.

That formula netted them a 5-1 win Tuesday night over the St. Louis Cardinals as Alex Gordon and Salvador Perez went deep while Jason Hammel scattered nine hits but gave up just one run, that coming on a fluky double steal, as he won for the first time in six decisions.

Kansas City will try to replicate that performance in Wednesday's series finale at Busch Stadium behind its best starter this year, right-hander Jake Junis (5-3, 3.51). He's coming off a 5-2 win on Friday night over the New York Yankees in Kauffman Stadium.
