Davis snaps skid; Royals top Rays 5-3

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (AP) -

   Wade Davis stopped his five-game winless streak, Jeff Francoeur homered, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Sunday.
 
   Davis (4-5) gave up two runs and five hits in six innings for his first win since he beat the Los Angeles Angels on May 15. It was the right-hander's first game against the Rays, who traded him to the Royals during the offseason.
 
   After Francoeur hit a solo homer in the fifth inning, Alcides Escobar and Alex Gordon had RBI singles to put the Royals ahead 4-2 in the sixth. Gordon added a sacrifice fly in the eighth.
 
   Greg Holland, the fourth Kansas City reliever, earned his 14th save despite allowing a homer to Jose Lobaton in the ninth.
 
   Roberto Hernandez (4-7) allowed four runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings for Tampa Bay, which went 4-6 on a 10-game homestand.
