OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Chris Young bounced back from his worst start of the season to pitch six innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Oakland Athletics 3-2 Saturday.

Kendrys Morales hit a two-run single in the sixth off Scott Kazmir (4-5) that erased a 2-1 deficit. The Royals won for the fourth time in five games on their road trip.

Young (7-3) allowed four hits and two runs. He walked one and struck out four.

That was in stark contrast to Young's previous start against Boston when he was tagged for seven runs in 4 2-3 innings.

Sam Fuld doubled for the A's, who were wearing throwback uniforms from 1965 when the franchise was in Kansas City. Oakland has lost two straight after a season-high, five-game winning streak.

For the second consecutive game these two bitter rivals played without incident. When they played in Kansas City in April, all three games were marred by bench-clearing dustups.
