Royals' Vargas beats Blue Jays for 17th win

(TSX / STATS) -- TORONTO -- Jason Vargas and pitching coach Dave Eiland made a slight adjustment three starts ago, and the Kansas City Royals left-hander has not lost since.

Vargas held the Toronto Blue Jays to two hits and three walks over 6 1/3 innings, and Melky Cabrera had three hits and an RBI on Thursday night as the Royals won the rubber match of the three-game series 1-0.

"Mechanically, (Vargas) just got under the ball a little bit," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "Him and (Eiland) made a good adjustment three starts ago, and he's been really good from that point on. He's been downhill, he's been changing speeds well. He definitely was lights out tonight."
