Hawksworth (2-4) was charged with two runs -- one earned -- on two hits, while issuing one walk and striking out one for St. Louis, which stopped a two-game slide. Ryan Franklin got the last four outs to record his 15th save.

Kyle Davis (4-6) absorbed the loss after yielding five runs -- four earned -- on six hits over seven innings, while walking one and fanning two for the Royals, who have lost six of their last eight.

David DeJesus went 3-4 with a run scored and two runs driven in for Kansas City, which slipped to 5-7 in games decided by two runs.
