KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Whenever a Royals pitcher has issued a walk lately, the runner has usually scored. So when Ned Yosts own guys worked a pair of walks against the Yankees on Saturday night in the sixth inning of a tied game, the often-dour manager had an optimistic thought. "Lets turn it around this time," Yost said. Salvador Perez did just that. The big catcher belted a three-run homer into the bullpen in left field, and Eric Hosmer added a solo shot later in the game, sending Kansas City to an 8-4 victory over New York. "Ive said all along, I thought we have home-run power," said Yost, whose team has hit just 26 homers -- by far the fewest in the majors. "Itll manifest itself in time." Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar and Nori Aoki drove in a run apiece as the Royals bounced back from an offensively inept performance in a 4-2 series-opening loss Friday night. Aaron Crow (3-1) retired one batter in the sixth in relief of starter Danny Duffy, and breezed through the seventh to earn the victory. Kelvin Herrera and Michael Mariot finished it off. David Phelps (1-4) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and two walks in 5 2-3 innings. "Frustrating is the PG-rated word for it," he said. "I was pitching decent going into later parts of games, but its tough to win ballgames when you give up four runs in the sixth and seventh inning. Its frustrating." Yangervis Solarte drove in a pair of runs for New York, and Carlos Beltran -- whos been bothered by an ailing elbow and is still relegated to designated hitter duty -- got an RBI with his first hit since coming off the disabled list Thursday. "Its like starting over for me," Beltran said. "One day, two days is not going to do it, any difference. Basically you have to play every day and with playing time that will come. I cannot tell you (when). I wish I could know." The Royals struck first when Billy Butler and Gordon led off the second inning with back-to-back doubles, and Cain and Escobar provided run-scoring singles for a 3-0 lead. It took the Yankees until the sixth to answer. Derek Jeter started the rally with a single and Mark Teixeira kept it going with a two-out walk. Beltran followed with an RBI double against his former team, and Solarte tied the game 3-all when his sinking liner to centre field dropped just beyond Cains outstretched glove. Duffy, who appeared bothered by lengthy waits for television breaks between innings, was eventually removed after allowing three runs on five hits and three walks in 5 2-3 innings. The Royals made sure to pick him up. Butler and Gordon worked walks to start the bottom half of the sixth, earning Phelps a visit from Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild. It didnt do any good. Two pitches later, Perez sent a no-doubt homer into the bullpen in left field to restore the Royals three-run lead. "We needed that," Perez said. "Its not been easy, but its coming." Cain tripled later in the inning, and Aokis RBI single knocked Phelps from the game. "We just scored three runs. Thats the worst kind of team error right there," Phelps said. "To go out and we have all the momentum right there and in nine pitches gave it right back." It was another poor outing by the Yankees right-hander, who moved from the bullpen into the rotation last month. Phelps has lost four straight decisions, allowing 16 runs in the last three. Hosmers homer leading off the seventh was his first since May 5, a span of 130 at-bats, and Brian Roberts tacked on a run off Mariot in the ninth inning that proved to be moot. "Youve got to keep battling back," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "Were still fighting." NOTES: The Yankees have not scored more than four runs in any of their last nine games. ... Yankees CF Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 12 games. ... Royals 2B Omar Infante went 0 for 5, extending his slump to 0 for 18. ... The Yankees chose RHP Mariano Rivera III, the son of longtime closer Mariano Rivera, in the 29th round of the first-year player draft. ... Yankees RHP Hiroki Kuroda and Royals RHP James Shields are scheduled to start Sunday. Fake USA Soccer Jerseys .

After team mechanics tended to the car, Ricciardo went back out for a mere two trips around the circuit before calling it quits. Custom USA Soccer Jerseys . Team officials travelled to Los Angeles on Thursday night to meet with the free agent, a person with knowledge of the plans said.Nick Compton needs to adopt a more positive approach to his batting going forward if Englands No 3 wants to save his Test career, according to Sky Sports pundit Michael Holding. The Middlesex batsman made just nine runs from 34 balls on day one of the second Test against Sri Lanka at the Emirates Riverside as the home side closed on 310-6.However, after also failing in Englands comprehensive first Test win at Headingley last week when making a three-ball duck, the pressure is now very much on Comptons shoulders going into his second innings in Durham. Holding, however, thinks Compton should be more aggressive the next time he walks to the wicket, with the former West Indies paceman using compatriot Lawrence Rowes past difficulties for his country as an example of how to hit your way into form. Weve picked out Joe Root as our player of the day after his 80 helped England reached 310-6 after the first day of the second Test People have been saying that maybe he needs to change the way he bats, Holding told Sky Sports. There are two viewpoints.I remember years ago when Lawrence Rowe was having struggles in the Caribbean and he was not getting any runs. He went out there against England blazing one afternoon and got something like 47 or 48 in quick time. And then he came back and got a triple century.Greg Chappell went through a similar situation in Australia in the Eighties and they asked Greg, when he did eventually get some runs, if he ever thought about going out and throwing his bat.And he said: No, that is not the way I have ever batted. I just decided to keep on batting the way I know how to bat and eventually the runs will come. Milinda Siriwardana was pleased with his performance after he picked up two wickets on day one of the second Test against England Well Compton may need to start thinking a little more positively about his stroke play, because he goes out there in this defensive mode. And I think he is putting a lot of pressure on himself by being in that defensive mode.He needs to loosen up a bit. Do not go out and throw the bat, but loosen up a bit.Mahela Jayawardena, meanwhile, agrees with his fellow Sky Sports pundit and the one-time Sri Lanka captain believes Compton is placing himself under too much pressure when going out to bat.You felt that he was on a mission after he got out in the first Test match caught behind, he said of the right-hander who has been out for scores of 15, 26, 0, 19, 6, 0 and 9 in his last seven Test innings. England opener Alex Hales told David Lloyd he thinks England had the better day after England posted 310-6 So his focus was on trying to get forward and making sure that he controls that.ddddddddddddAnd you could see his intent of playing forward all the time. Then all of a sudden the short ball came out of nowhere because he was not prepared.You need to be going with the flow, rather than putting yourself under pressure, by batting with a plan.It probably was a planned thing from the Sri Lankans, but he was not ready for that short ball and he took it on. Alex Hales (left) chats to Nick Compton on the opening day of the second Test in Durham So he just needs to clear his mind and bat the way he bats naturally and be more positive.One England player who is not struggling for runs so far this summer is opener Alex Hales, who made an impressive 83 on day one at the Riverside, his second score in the eighties after falling 14 runs short of a century in Leeds last week. He is showing why the selectors showed faith in him. They knew what he could produce and he has shown he could adapt Michael Holding on Alex Hales However, Jayawardena feels the Nottinghamshire batsman must now take the next step up by recording that elusive maiden Test ton in order to make him feel like he belongs at the highest level of the game.He needs to get that hundred, as once you get that, you feel you belong in Test cricket, he said.He has found a way to control his innings and tempo, but once he gets those big runs under his belt, then he can start to control his innings better. The longer he spends time there, he will find a way to control his tempo better.Jayawardena, though, has urged Hales to carry on playing his natural game, despite the Englishman once again getting dismissed playing an attacking shot against a spinner, as he also did at Headingley. Watch a pick of the action from the first day of the second Test between England and Sri Lanka Either way, Holding thinks Hales is demonstrating just why England coach Trevor Bayliss picked him for the tour of South Africa and then kept faith with the opener after his lean time with the bat during the winter.When he didnt do that well in South Africa a lot of people, including myself, were saying he doesnt really look like he is going to make it at Test level. England knew exactly what he could produce - and he is now producing.When he came into the side people spoke about his possibly being a dasher, but he hasnt batted that way in Test cricket as he realises it isnt going to work. He dug in at Leeds when wickets were tumbling around him.And now he is showing why the selectors showed faith in him. They knew what he could produce and so its good to see he can adapt.
