KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 25 (UPI) -- Luke Hochevar tossed his second career shutout Monday, taming Tampa Bay on seven hits in the Kansas City Royals' 8-0 whitewash of the Rays.

Hochevar (5-7) stretched his scoreless streak to 16 2/3 innings, allowing only one runner to reach as far as third base.

The right-hander surrendered one walk while striking out eight for the Royals, who were coming off a three-game interleague sweep at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Yuniesky Betancourt drove in three runs while Eric Hosmer provided a solo homer and a run-scoring single for Kansas City.

Alex Gordon and Alcides Escobar each chipped in with three hits for the Royals.

Alex Cobb (3-4) absorbed a complete-game defeat, coughing up eight runs on 13 hits for Tampa Bay, which fell for the fourth time in five games.
