Castro, Báez homer, Tigers sweep Royals 10-3, escape cellar

DETROIT (AP) Willi Castro and Javy Baez homered to lead Detroit over the Kansas City Royals 10-3 on Thursday for a three-game sweep that moved the Tigers out of last place in the AL Central.

Detroit (63-92) has won six straight, matching its season high and ensuring the Tigers will not lose 100 games. Detroit went 10-9 this year against the Royals (63-93), who dropped into the division cellar.

"We're at 92 losses, so we're not going to celebrate anything, but we're happy to sweep again," Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said. "We're playing better across the board, but as a manager, I know there are a lot of things we can do better. Still, winning is nice."
