Sanchez solid as Blue Jays top Royals

TORONTO—Aaron Sanchez is pitching like he wants to stay in the Blue Jays rotation. Even if that decision isn’t up to him.

The 24-year-old right-hander threw eight sparkling innings of one-run ball as Toronto topped the Royals 6-2 yesterday in the teams’ first meeting since Kansas City’s Game 6 win in last year’s American League Championship Series.
