Royals Vs. Yankees Final Score: New York Batters Luke Hochevar For 10-4 Win

Luke Hochevar struggled once again as the New York Yankees handed Kansas City a 10-4 loss in the series finale of their four-game set on Sunday.

Irving Falu and Jarrod Dyson finished with two hits each for the Royals. Five different players had at least two hits for the Yankees with Cano and Rodriguez combining for seven RBIs.

Phil Hughes earns the win allowing three runs in 6.2 innnings pitched to improve to 2-4. Hochevar falls to 2-3 and sees his ERA balloon to 9.00 on the season.
