KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- First baseman Carlos Santana completed a huge series, homering twice and driving in four runs as the Cleveland Indians routed the Kansas City Royals 10-3 Sunday to prevent a four-game sweep.
Santana hit .643 (9-for-14) with five home runs and eight RBIs in the series at Kauffman Stadium. He had a 1.155 slugging percentage in the four games.

Left fielder Ryan Raburn and designated hitter Yan Gomes also went deep for the Indians.
Phillies 4, Diamondbacks 2
PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Howard hit a homer and scored the go-ahead run on a controversial overturned play at the plate as Philadelphia beat Arizona.
Witt the score tied 2-2 with two outs in the sixth, D-backs second baseman Didi Gregorius dropped Marlon Byrd's popup in left field. On the throw home, umpires ruled after a replay challenge that catcher Miguel Montero illegally blocked Howard, who scored from first base on the play.
The play was overturned per Rule 7.13, adopted this year to prevent collisions at home plate. Under last season's rules, Howard would have been out by 5 feet and without any debate.
Blue Jays 5, Yankees 4
NEW YORK -- Dioner Navarro hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the top of the ninth inning for Toronto.

Rookie Aaron Sanchez (1-0) picked up the win despite allowing a game-tying single to designated hitter Carlos Beltran in the eighth. He kept the game tied by getting first baseman Brian McCann to ground out into a defensive shift.
Nationals 4, Reds 2

MILWAUKEE -- Lucas Duda launched a go-ahead, two-run home run, his third of the series and 18th of the season, boosting New York past Milwaukee.
