KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 10 (UPI) -- Jeremy Guthrie logged 6 1/3 solid innings and the Kansas City bullpen took over from there Monday in the Royals' sixth straight win, 3-2 over Detroit.

Guthrie (7-3) turned in a third straight quality start, yielding two runs on six hits and three walks, exiting with a one-run lead.

The Royals relief corps made the advantage hold up as Aaron Crow, Tim Collins and Kelvin Herrera combined for 1 2/3 scoreless frames and Greg Holland tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 13th save.

Salvador Perez delivered a two-run triple in the third inning and scored on Lorenzo Cain's single as the Royals took the opener of a three-game series.

Detroit's Doug Fister (5-4) was tagged with a complete-game loss, surrendering three runs on nine hits. He didn't allow a walk and struck out three.

Miguel Cabrera belted his 18th homer of the season -- a two-run shot -- for the American League Central-leading Tigers.
