KANSAS CITY (AP) - Ervin Santana pitched seven snappy innings and the Kansas City Royals finally backed him up with some offense in a 7-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Santana (4-5) entered the game with the worst run support among qualifying pitchers in the American League, a big reason why he already had six fruitless tries to win his 100th career game.

He finally reached the milestone thanks to a seemingly endless series of singles and doubles off Astros starter Erik Bedard (1-3), who failed to make it through the fifth inning.

Meanwhile, Santana allowed five hits in seven innings, striking out six without a walk. The only damage he allowed came on an RBI single by Jose Altuve and a solo homer by Chris Carter.

Lorenzo Cain had a pair of RBIs to lead the Royals.
