Beeks comes in, pitches Rays over sliding Royals 5-2

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Jalen Beeks took over from opener Ryne Stanek in the second and struck out seven in 4 2/3 shutout innings, Mike Zunino homered for the second straight game and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Kansas City 5-2 Tuesday night, sending the Royals to their fifth straight loss.

Homer Bailey (2-2) failed in his attempt to win three straight starts for the first time in five years, getting taken out after Tampa Bay's first four batters reached in the second inning.

Zunino had three of Tampa Bay's seven hits and drove in two runs.
