Alex Gordon homered and Kyle Davies beat Detroit for the first time in six home starts, leading Kansas City past the Tigers 2-1 on a warm, windy Sunday afternoon. Davies (7-9) went six innings and allowed only three hits and one run, a home run by Casper Wells in the fifth. He walked three and struck out four after coming in with an 0-5 record and a 6.59 ERA in five starts against the Tigers in Kauffman Stadium. Joakim Soria had two strikeouts while pitching a perfect ninth to extend his club record with 30 consecutive saves.
