KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Doug Fister was stingy, yet the Kansas City Royals still got to him.

Salvador Perez had a two-run triple and the Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on Monday night for their sixth straight victory.

``I made some good pitches that they got timely hits on in the right spots,' Fister said. ``Even when you make a good pitch it can still get hit. That's the way the ball bounces. I made some good pitches when I needed to and they found some holes.'

Jeremy Guthrie (7-3) limited the Tigers to a two-run homer by Miguel Cabrera in 6 1-3 innings in helping the Royals to extend their longest winning streak since they won seven straight in September 2011. He gave up six hits and walked three.

``I made a bad mistake and he didn't miss it,' Guthrie said of the pitch Cabrera hit out.

Fister didn't make a bad mistake, but the Royals had infield singles by Alcides Escobar to leadoff the third. Lorenzo Cain drove in the go-ahead run after Perez's triple.

Aaron Crow replaced Guthrie after he gave up a single to Avisail Garcia and he hit Andy Dirks with an 0-2 pitch. Crow retired Torii Hunter on a fly to shallow right and struck out Cabrera to end the threat.

``I thought we had some good swings, but that's baseball,' Hunter said. ``It's a round ball and a round bat. These things happen. It just didn't work out for us. We hit some balls hard.'

Fister (5-4), who is 0-3 in five starts since a victory May 14 over Houston, went the distance. He allowed three runs on nine hits.

``I feel so bad for him,' Hunter said. ``He's pitching his rear off and he keeps chucking the ball. Eventually we're going to get it for him. He goes out there for eight innings and he doesn't give up. He's a great guy, gave great effort, and our offense stunk.'

Cabrera, who tops the American League with 90 hits and 69 RBIs, hit his 18th home run in the second after Hunter doubled.

Perez's one-out triple rolled by a diving Garcia in right-center in the third scored Escobar and Hosmer after they each singled.

``Both guys broke for it,' Leyland said of Perez's triple. ``It didn't look too good, but you can't fault the guys for an effort like that.'

Greg Holland worked a flawless ninth for his 13th save in 15 opportunities.

The Royals are 7-2 in June after losing 20 of 28 games in May. The pitching staff has a 1.44 ERA in June.

The Royals improved to 8-3 since George Brett was named the interim hitting coach on May 30.

NOTES: Tigers CF Austin Jackson, who went on the disabled list May 12 with a left hamstring pull, began an injury rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Toledo. Jackson went 0-for-5 and struck out three times as the Mud Hens DH. .Royals LHP Danny Duffy, who had Tommy John surgery last June, made a rehab start Monday for Class-A Omaha, giving up seven runs on seven hits, two walks and a hit batter in 2 1-3 innings, throwing 58 pitches at Nashville. . The Royals signed Stephen F. Austin SS Hunter Dozier, the eighth overall pick in the draft, to a $2.2 million signing bonus, which is $937,800 under the allotted slot bonus. . RHP Anibal Sanchez, who missed a start Sunday with shoulder stiffness, will probably make his next start. ``I think so,' Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. ...The Tigers recalled RHP Evan Reed from Triple-A Toledo, where he was 1-1 with a 2.53 ERA in 21 outings.
