Ervin Santana scattered five hits and allowed one run in six innings, and the Kansas City Royals s took advantage of a sun-splashed Sunday to beat the New York Mets 6-2 and win the three-game set.
The Royals won for the 11th time in 12 games, helped by a pair of flyballs that right fielder Marlon Byrd lost in the glare.
Both came during a three-run fifth, with one falling for a double and the other glancing off his glove for an error.
Mike Moustakas hit a solo homer for the Royals, who won their second straight from the Mets.
Kansas City completed an 8-1 road trip.
