KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Alcides Escobar delivered a two run double in the seventh inning, and the Kansas City Royals held on for a tense 4-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday night.

Eric Hosmer drove in the other two runs for the Royals, whose bullpen blew a 2-0 lead for young starter Yordano Ventura before holding on to beat Toronto with a late rally for the second straight night. Kansas City won the series opener 10-7 behind a six run eighth inning.

Kelvin Herrera (1-1) stranded runners on second and third in the seventh, and Wade Davis struck out Jose Reyes to leave the bases loaded in the eighth. Greg Holland worked around a double in the ninth for his seventh save in seven tries.

Drew Hutchison (1-2) allowed all four runs on five hits in seven innings for Toronto.
