MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Chris Young became the first Royals pitcher to drive in three runs in a game since 1972 and worked seven innings of five-hit ball Tuesday night, leading Kansas City to a 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Young had a two-run single in the fourth inning and an RBI single in the fifth for the Royals, who have won six of eight after a 2-9 skid. He is the sixth Kansas City pitcher with at least three RBIs and the first since Steve Busby.

Young (6-2) struck out three without any walks to improve to 12-2 in interleague starts in his career.

Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas each homered for Kansas City.

Matt Garza (4-8) allowed six runs and a career-high 13 hits in 6 2-3 innings. He is 1-5 at home this year.

Milwaukee is 11-24 at Miller Park after losing its fourth game in a row.
