Luke Hochevar worked a season-high 6 2-3 innings, Willie Bloomquist hit a three-run triple and the Kansas City Royals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-2 on Saturday to end an eight-game losing streak.

Mark Teahen went 2 for 4 with a homer and three RBIs for the Royals, who had not won since beating Detroit 6-1 on May 26 and entered having lost 20 of 25.

Called up from Triple-A Omaha to make the start, Hochevar (1-2) won for the first time since July 11, 2008. He allowed two runs and four hits.

Pitching on the third anniversary of his first overall selection in the 2006 draft, Hochevar lowered his ERA from 10.80 to 7.85.
