Voit, Yanks beat KC 7-3, open twinbill with 6th win in row

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Luke Voit put on quite a power show for his big rooting section at Kauffman Stadium.

With 60 family members and friends in the stands, the Missouri native hit a 470-foot, go-ahead home run in the seventh inning that sent the New York Yankees past the Kansas City Royals 7-3 Saturday in the first game of a split doubleheader.

Voit grew up near St. Louis, was drafted by the Royals out of high school, went to Missouri State and made his major league debut with the Cardinals.
