    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.

Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. Nike Air Max 90 Black. -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. ASHBURN, Va. -- Its not a war of words Washington Redskins corner Josh Norman wants to get into with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Its a jersey swap.Not that itll happen. Two years ago, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin began prohibiting the teams players from engaging in them. But the overall point from Norman was simple. He has a healthy respect for two of the players hell face Monday night: quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and receiver Antonio Brown.Oh my gosh, Big Ben, another great one, Norman said. You look at the quarterbacks in this league, and Big Ben has been up there since hes been in the league. Hes one of the great ones. Ill walk up to him and be like, Hey, can I get your jersey?Thats how much respect Ive got for him. I dont ask for jerseys like that, until someone shows me they are great at what they do. Big Ben is that. Thats the utmost respect I have for a quarterback.Norman has been a focal point ever since he signed with Washington in the spring, following Carolinas decision to rescind the franchise tag it had placed on him. Part of it stems from his contract, worth $15 million a year, the highest for a corner. He has been in headlines for his matchup with?Odell Beckham Jr., based on what happened last year and because they play twice this season.Arizona corner Patrick Peterson poked fun at him on Twitter about a video from a Redskins practice that ended up on social media. But when it came to Roethlisberger and Brown, there was nothing but love from Norman. In fact, Norman can be a quiet player on the field, teammates say. Even Norman said he wouldnt trash talk with Brown, because he likes him.Watching him and what hes able to do is freakish, Norman said. When you look at the receivers inn the NFL you dont have to stop nowhere other than Antonio Brown.dddddddddddd It starts and ends with him. Thats going to be a tall task to take on, and I respect that. Im looking forward to what he brings, because that matchup is going to be a physical one and a fun one. I have nothing but respect for that guy.Monday will mark the first time Norman covers Brown in a game -- they didnt match up in a 2013 meeting -- but that respect extends as well to Roethlisberger, whom Norman called cerebral.He can make all the throws, Norman said. Shoot, his name speaks for itself: Big Ben. You cant take him down. Hes good with his feet. Thats the thing people dont realize and understand, that he can create things on the go, and he gets back there and he doesnt get flustered.Earlier in the day, Roethlisberger said he didnt want to get lulled into any sort of verbal exchange.If youre trying to do that, thats when the game kind of falls apart, and the defender gets you, he said in a conference call with the Washington media. Thats what they want. Ive been playing long enough not to fall into that trap, whether its a corner, whether its a linebacker or a trash-talker.But, Norman said, thats not what hes looking for Monday night, his first regular-season game in a Redskins uniform. For him, its not about reminding everyone what he can still do on the field.I dont have to do that, because Ive been doing that since day one, Norman said. Its just them. Its not trying to prove them wrong. Its trying to prove Im right in what I do and my approach. I dont care about the other white noise.
