Royals Stop Slide With 4-3 Victory Over Rangers

By Lynne Roberts. CREATED Sep 2, 2014

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Salvador Perez homered and drove in three runs, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 on Monday night to snap a three-game losing streak.
 
Perez, who had three hits, went deep in the third with Alex Gordon aboard. His two-out double in the first scored Gordon, who had singled and swiped second.
 
Yordano Ventura allowed three runs, two earned, and five hits in 6 1-3 innings for Kansas City. The right-hander, who was skipped on his previous turn in the rotation due to a sore back, struck out seven and walked four.
 
Greg Holland pitched the ninth for his 41st save in 43 chances.
