OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jorge Soler and Andrew Benintendi homered to help back Mike Minor, and the Kansas City Royals snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Oakland Athletics 6-1.

He was tagged for three runs — two earned — on five hits over 6 1/3 innings. Minor struck out eight and walked one while allowing three hits and one earned run over seven strong innings.

Hunter Dozier hit a tying double in the seventh then Kelvin Gutiérrez followed with a go-ahead, two-run single.
