Derek Jeter delivered a bases-loaded single that tied the score
in the fifth inning and New York rallied from an early two-run
deficit to snap a three-game skid. Shut out Monday in the series
opener, the Yankees (22-21) went 2 for 7 with runners in scoring
position, one night after they finished 0 for 13 in those
situations for their worst performance with RISP since 1990.
Hughes (4-5) gave up five hits in six innings while striking out
seven, beating Royals right-hander Luke Hochevar (3-5) for the
second time in 17 days.
