KC Beats Cards
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jeff Francis threw 7 2-3 innings, outdueling Chris Carpenter and leading the Kansas City Royals to a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

Francis (1-5), who had pitched well several times while failing to get his first win since signing with the Royals, was facing a team he had always fared well against while playing in the National League. The right-hander gave up six hits and two runs, walked two and struck out six while raising his career record over the Cardinals to 5-1.

He was relieved in the eighth after giving up a single to Ryan Theriot and striking out Colby Rasmus for the third time.

Aaron Crow got the final out of the eighth. Joakim Soria worked a 1-2-3 ninth to complete the shutout with his seventh save.
