July 9, 2013 at 9:54 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, July 9 (UPI) -- James Shields overcame a shaky first inning Tuesday and went on to throttle New York over seven frames in the Kansas City Royals' 3-1 win over the Yankees.

Shields (4-6) yielded a run on four hits in the first, but then settled down to blank New York on just one more hit the rest of way. The right-hander gave up two walks and struck out five en route to the victory.

Tim Collins tossed a scoreless eighth and Greg Holland turned in a 1-2-3 ninth for his 22nd save as Kansas City notched a second straight win in its four-game series at Yankee Stadium.

David Lough and Billy Butler each socked a solo homer and Eric Hosmer added an RBI double to supply the Royals' offense.

CC Sabathia (9-7) took the loss, yielding three runs on seven innings in a complete-game effort. He walked two and struck out three.

Robinson Cano drove in the only run for New York, which dropped a third consecutive game overall.
