ARLINGTON, TX (AP) -- Melky Cabrera and rookie Eric Hosmer hit consecutive one-out homers in a five-run 14th inning and the Kansas City Royals snapped a five-game losing streak with a 12-7 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
Cabrera hit a drive over the center field fence off Dave Bush (0-1) to snap a 7-all tie, and Hosmer gave the Royals a two-run lead. Brayan Pena added a three-run homer off Bush. The Royals won for the third time in 13 games.
