Yankees Snap 4-Game Skid, Beat Royals 5-1



    Yankees Snap 4-Game Skid, Beat Royals 5-1
    Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia pitches seven strong innings.

    Chase Headley and Alex Rodriguez homered, CC Sabathia found his form in his eighth start of the season, and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Saturday night.

    The Yankees snapped their skid at four and evened the three-game series.

    With rain approaching the entire evening, Sabathia (2-5) made quick work of the Royals, who had pounded out 12 runs on 17 hits the previous night. The lefty allowed the lone run on six hits without a walk in seven innings to win his second straight start.

    Headley hit a three-run drive and Rodriguez added his 10th homer of the season in the ninth.

    Danny Duffy (2-3) lost his third straight start, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks in five innings. It was a modest improvement over his previous two starts, when he'd been hammered for 10 runs in 4 2/3 innings by the Indians and Rangers.
