OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Alberto Callaspo hit a go-ahead two-run single in the sixth, Kyle Davies struck out six and won consecutive starts for the first time all season and the Kansas City Royals beat the Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Callaspo also had an earlier single to help the Royals bounce back a night after a sloppy 8-5 loss in which they led 4-0 early. Kansas City captured its first victory in four tries this year at the Coliseum.
Rajai Davis homered in the first to put the A's ahead, but Miguel Olivo's RBI single in the top of the second tied it.
Billy Butler hit the Royals' majors-best 43rd triple in the second, his first since Aug. 30, 2007, against Detroit in Kansas City - a span of 1,030 at-bats and 278 games.
