DETROIT (AP) -- Paulo Orlando hit a tying, two-run double and Eric Hosmer followed with a three-run homer against Francisco Rodriguez, capping a ninth-inning comeback that led the Kansas City Royals over the Detroit Tigers 7-4 Saturday.
   Given a 4-2 lead, Rodriguez (3-4) allowed singles to Alex Gordon and Hunter Dozier before Orlando's double. Cheslor Cuthbert walked and Hosmer hit his 24th homer.
   Wade Davis (2-1) pitched a one-hit eighth and Kelvin Herrera, Kansas City's seventh pitcher, got three straight outs for his 12th save in 15 chances. Rodriguez blew a save for the fifth time in 49 opportunities.
   Detroit's five-game winning streak was stopped, and the Tigers dropped into a tie for the second AL wild card with Baltimore, which played Arizona at night.
