KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 26 (UPI) -- Jose Guillen's go-ahead solo homer in the bottom of the seventh Saturday boosted the Kansas City Royals past Toronto 2-1.
The struggling left-fielder was batting just .182 when he stroked his second homer this season leading off the bottom of the sixth inning.
Ross Gload drove in a run with a single in the fourth and five players had one hit each for the Royals, who have won two in a row following a seven-game losing streak.
In his first major league win, right-hander Luke Hochevar (1-1) gave up an earned run and six hits in six innings.
Closer Joakim Soria pitched a scoreless ninth to earn his sixth save.
Losing pitcher Shaun Marcum (2-2) yielded two earned runs and just four hits in seven innings, with three walks and four strikeouts.
