KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 25 (UPI) -- Alex Gordon and David Lough drove in two runs each Thursday and Jeremy Guthrie had a strong outing to lift Kansas City over Baltimore 7-1.

The Royals have won three in a row for the first time in six weeks, a stretch of success that has come after they had lost seven out of nine.

Lough singled in the second of the two Kansas City runs in the first, Gordon had a sacrifice fly in the second and both had an RBI during a three-run fifth that gave the Royals a 6-1 lead.

Gordon tripled in a run in the fifth and scored on a single by Eric Hosmer, after which Lough drove in Hosmer with a base hit.

Guthrie (10-7) gave up the only Baltimore run on five hits while striking out five in six innings.

The loss went to Miguel Gonzales (8-4), who surrendered five runs on eight hits in 4 2/3.
