KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Harvey ended his nine-game losing skid with his best performance in years, pitching six crisp innings and sending the Baltimore Orioles over the Kansas City Royals 5-0.

Harvey had been winless in 12 starts since his previous victory on May 1. The former All-Star allowed just three singles, walked one and struck out two against his former team. He improved to 4-10 this season. Harvey’s six innings matched his season high.

This was the first time since September 2018 that Harvey pitched at least six innings and didn’t allow a run. Hunter Dozier tied a career high with four hits for the Royals.
