Miguels run over Royals
Cabrera, Olivo bash KC
It was the Miguel & Miguel show at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday. Miguel Olivo continued to scorch Royals pitching with five more hits and is now 8-for-9 with three RBIs in the series, while Miguel Cabrera launched two, two-run home runs to back an effective start by Rick Vanden Hurk, who won his second game of the year.

Series at a glance:
Late rally falls short
Jorge De La Rosa's home woes continued on Saturday, as the Royals lefty gave up seven runs and a season-high 13 hits. Mike Sweeney had a two-run double and John Buck clocked two home runs to help the Royals fashion a comeback, but they could not overcome two home runs by the Marlins' Miguel Cabrera.
