Wade Davis pitches 7 scoreless innings as Royals snap Braves' streak

ATLANTA -- Wade Davis pitched five-hit ball for seven innings, Jeff Francoeur had a fourth-inning RBI single and the Kansas City Royals stopped Atlanta's 10-game winning streak with a 1-0 victory Wednesday.


The Braves were seeking their first 13-1 start since 1994, but the powerful Atlanta offense -- which homered five times off the Royals on Tuesday -- finally was stifled.


Davis (2-0) didn't walk anyone and struck out seven, and the Braves couldn't get a runner past first base until Jason Heyward's two-out double in the sixth. Their only serious scoring chance came in the seventh, when Juan Francisco was thrown out trying to score from first on a pop down the right-field line.


Greg Holland worked a scoreless ninth for his third save in four chances.


Mike Minor (2-1) had another strong outing for the Braves, allowing just five hits and the lone run in six innings. The left-hander's ERA over three starts is 0.95.


Neither team had gotten a runner as far as second base until the fourth, when the Royals caught a couple of breaks before Francoeur's two-out hit.


Alcides Escobar led off with a single to right, breaking an 0-for-15 slump, but it appeared he wouldn't be on base for long when he got stranded between first and second after a pitch. Catcher Evan Gattis tried to run at Escobar but held the ball for too long, allowing the runner to slide back into first just ahead of the throw.

Better Than Expected The Lakers didn't just get in the playoffs Wednesday. L.A. earned the West's seventh seed in overtime.
