(AP) - MJ Melendez and Emmanuel Rivera drove in two runs apiece, leading Brady Singer and the Kansas City Royals over the Toronto Blue Jays 8-4 Wednesday to end a three-game losing streak.

Singer allowed home runs to Raimel Tapia and Zack Collins, but only allowed one other run in five innings. He improved to 3-1 in his five starts while the rest of the Kansas City rotation is 3-25 in 50 combined starts.

Toronto briefly tied the game at 3-all before Trevor Richards allowed three more runs in the fourth and fifth innings to take the loss for the Blue Jays.

The Royals now open a four-game series at home against Baltimore on Thursday night. First pitch is set for 7:10. Coverage starts at 6:30 on KFEQ Radio (680, 95.3). Kris Bubic gets the start.
