|K.C. Beats Cards in Rubber Match
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jason Kendall had a pair of two-run doubles and Jose Guillen stretched his hitting streak to 21 games, leading the Kansas City Royals past the St. Louis Cardinals 10-3 Sunday.
Wilson Betemit hit a three-run homer as the Royals took two of three from their I-70 rivals. Last year, the Cardinals went 5-1 against Kansas City and swept all three in Kauffman Stadium.
Guillen had two singles, his first glanced off the glove of shortstop Brendan Ryan and drove in a run. His 21-game streak is the longest by a Royal since Rey Sanchez hit in 21 straight in 2001.
During Guillen's streak, 27 of his 31 hits have been singles. He's also had two doubles, a triple, one homer and 13 RBIs.
