KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Brian Bannister picked up his third
straight victory, Mark Teahen hit a three-run homer and the Kansas
City Royals beat the Colorado Rockies 8-4 on Monday night for their
eighth win in nine games.
The Royals' hot streak has all come against National League
clubs, and their 10-3 record is the best in interleague play.
Bannister (7-6), who is 3-0 in his last six starts, did not
allow a hit until Jeff Baker's two-out single in the fifth. He
matched a career high with six walks before the hit, but still
worked through seven innings for the fourth time in his pat five
starts. Bannister gave up three hits and three runs, all unearned,
while striking out five.
