Billy Butler hit two of Kansas City's four home runs to help the Royals snap a 12-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Indians 8-2 Wednesday night.

Butler's two-run blast off Ubaldo Jimenez (2-1) put the Royals
ahead in the first. He added a solo shot in the ninth off reliever
Jairo Asencio, following Alex Gordon's three-run homer against the
reliever.

Eric Hosmer's two-run shot in the fifth made it 4-0 -- the
Royals' largest lead since April 8, when they beat the Los Angeles
Angels 7-3.

Luke Hochevar (2-1) allowed four hits and two runs over 6 1-3
innings, recovering from a horrendous home opener start April 13
when he gave up seven runs in the first inning of an 8-3 loss to
Cleveland.
