KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - John Buck homered and drove in three runs, helping the Kansas City Royals rally past the New York Yankees 6-4 on a rainy Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.
The Royals scored three runs with two outs in the eighth inning off relievers Jose Veras and Phil Coke (0-1), spoiling a solid start by Joba Chamberlain in his season debut.
With the Yankees clinging to a 4-3 lead, Damaso Marte retired the first two Kansas City batters in the eighth before Veras was brought in to face pinch-hitter Billy Butler.
Veras walked Butler and was lifted for Coke, who gave up a double to Brayan Pena that scored pinch-runner Tony Pena Jr. with the tying run.
