Royals 12, Rangers 7, 14 innings

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Melky Cabrera and rookie Eric Hosmer hit consecutive one-out homers in a five-run 14th inning and Kansas City snapped a five-game losing streak.

Cabrera hit a drive over the center field fence off Dave Bush (0-1) to snap a 7-all tie, and Hosmer gave the Royals a two-run lead. Brayan Pena added a three-run homer off Bush. The Royals won for the third time in 13 games.

Blake Wood (2-0), the sixth Royals pitcher, threw a perfect 13th for the win.

Hosmer, called up from Triple-A Omaha on May 6, had four hits and four RBIs for the first time in his career.

Angels 6, Twins 5

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ Maicer Izturis hit a go-ahead RBI single in the ninth inning for the Angels after scoring five runs in the eighth off three Twins relievers.

Erick Aybar’s three-run homer on the first pitch from Dusty Hughes ignited the rally after Twins starter Scott Baker scattered six singles over seven shutout innings. Jim Hoey (0-2) was pitching when Alberto Callaspo’s infield single and Russell Branyan’s sacrifice fly forged a tie for the Angels.

Jordan Walden worked the ninth for his 11th save in 14 tries.

Scott Downs (3-1) got two outs for the win for the Angels.
