ST. LOUIS -- To hear Kendrys Morales tell it, luck is finally on his side.But the Kansas City Royals designated hitter/outfielder has been more than just lucky the past week.Morales homered and recorded his sixth straight multi-hit game on Thursday to lead the Royals to a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.Kansas City won for the fourth time in five games and took the two-city, four-game series three games to one.Things are falling for me, Morales said.Indeed.Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta homered for the Cardinals who have lost their last seven home games -- their longest losing streak since Aug. 2-15, 1983.Wade Davis recorded his 19th save in 21 opportunities.Morales, a designated hitter playing right field for the second straight night, doubled in the sixth inning off Mike Leake (5-6) to push the lead to 3-1. Morales, who went 3 for 4, has 16 hits in 24 at-bats over the six-game run. He went 12 for 16 in the series and started in the outfield for the first time since 2008.Since going 1 for 15 in a four-game set with Cleveland on June 2-5, Morales has been on fire. He was hitting .191 on June 5, but has gone 32 of 69 since to push his average to .262.I felt like before, I was making good contact, Morales said. It was just a combination of bad luck that played into it as well.His six-game multi-hit streak ties him for the longest this season along with J.D. Martinez (Detroit), Jackie Bradley Jr. (Boston) and Xander Bogaerts (Boston).Hes picking us up, hes on fire offensively, Royals manager Ned Yost said, Hes doing a very solid job in the outfield for us.St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said his club has never had any success against Morales.He was a game-changer, this year and last year, Matheny said. Hes been getting great at-bats.Morales is 25 of 53 (.472) lifetime against the Cardinals with five homers and 13 RBI. His 456-foot drive in the eighth inning off Tyler Lyons ties him for the longest home run by a visiting player at Busch Stadium III, which opened in 2006.Kansas City reliever Dillon Gee (3-2) picked up the win allowing one run in two innings.Moss ripped his 17th homer of the season off Royals starter Chris Young, who gave up one run and one hit over four innings, but walked six.The drive, which went 477 feet according to the Cardinals, is the longest in the history of Busch Stadium. It is the second-longest this season behind Giancarlo Stantons 490-foot blast for Miami on May 6, in a 6-4 win over Philadelphia.I hit it hard, Moss said. I know Im strong and I know how far I can hit it when I get a hold of one.Leake gave up three runs, two earned, in seven innings. He struck out four and walked one.There were a couple of pitches Id like to take back, Leake said.Kansas City pushed across an unearned run in the first before Jarrod Dyson doubled in Alcides Escobar in the second.Gees victory gives the Royals bullpen a 16-5 (.762) mark, the highest percentage in the majors. His lone mistake came to Peralta in the sixth inning.Im just glad I was able to do the job, Gee said. I felt good.Matheny was ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Mike Everitt. It was Mathenys first ejection of the season and 12th in four-plus season as a manager.GOLD GLOVE MORALESMorales last appearance in the field before Wednesday came on Sept. 27, 2008, while with the Angels.He handled all four chances on Wednesday and one on Thursday.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: RHP Kris Medlen gave up five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings of a rehab start for Triple-A Omaha on Thursday against Memphis.

NEW YORK -- It was a year and a half ago in Miami that CiCi Bellis first played Serena Williams and, in her fathers words, froze with fear.After winning only two games in the straight-sets loss, Gordon and Lori Bellis told their then-16-year-old daughter, You just played the biggest-serving, hardest-hitting, best player in the game. You have nothing else to be fearful of.Friday night, on one of the biggest stages in tennis, the 17-year-old American played the second-best player in the womens game and learned that while she might have a ways to go to defeat the proverbial big girls, she is no longer fearful.I think today was the best experience Ive ever had in tennis, Bellis said after being vanquished by Angelique Kerber 6-1, 6-1 in 55 minutes. Her groundstrokes are perfect. I hope to one day be able to play like her.It was the tour-leading 50th victory of 2016 for the 28-year-old Kerber, the 2016 Australian Open champ, Wimbledon finalist and French Open quarterfinalist. The second-seeded German -- who made her Arthur Ashe Stadium debut in 2007, when as a 19-year-old she lost in straight sets to Williams -- was complimentary of her young opponent.Shes a great young, really talented player, said Kerber, who moves onto the round of 16 against Petra Kvitova. For sure she will have a great future.Gordon Bellis had half-joked after his daughters second-round victory over French Open quarterfinalist Shelby Rogers that he intended to plead with tournament officials to not have CiCi play the late-evening match because she generally went to bed at 10.Fridays match began just before 10, and while Bellis seemed alert enough in her Ashe debut with two break points in the first game, Kerber would hold and get down to business soonn enough.ddddddddddddKerber broke Bellis twice in the 31-minute first set, then three more times in the second, showing her experience and court savvy in a way that inspired Bellis more than anything else.I think were around the same height, Bellis said. She doesnt have the biggest serve in womens tennis. I definitely dont either. I think shes a really good person to model my game after. ... Definitely an unbelievable match for me to be able to play, to play against.Bellis, who first captured the adoration of New York fans as a 15-year-old in 2014 with an opening-round upset over No. 13 Dominika Cibulkova, showed her tennis gumption with a late service break against Kerber to prevent a second-set bagel.In the end, she got to upgrade her hotel room to a suite and enjoy more than a week of tennis with three victories in qualifying and two in the main draw. But Bellis latest US Open ride came to an end with her blowing kisses to the crowd as she left the court.Its the most amazing court I ever played on ... the best court in the world, she said.Bellis said maintaining her amateur status and attending Stanford next year is still an option as she left $140,000 for her third-round appearance on the table. But it will not deter her from her next order of business.Now is going to be the best part of my trip here because now I actually get to go shopping, kind of explore a little bit, she said. My friend just actually came in town yesterday. Were just going to really go hit everything, just play it by ear, see what she wants to do, just figure it out from there. But were going to have a lot of fun. ' ' '
