Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Brandon Morrow allowed just one run over 6 2/3 innings as the Blue Jays took a 4-1 decision over the Royals to complete a four-game sweep at Kauffman Stadium on Monday.

Morrow (1-1) scattered seven hits and struck out three in the victory, while Francisco Cordero pitched a scoreless bottom of the ninth to record his second save of the year.

Jose Bautista belted a two-run blast and Kelly Johnson added a solo shot to help the Jays earn their 10th win of the season.

Bruce Chen (0-2) was charged with three runs on six hits and two walks over seven innings in the start. Eric Hosmer finished with two hits, including a solo homer, but the Royals fell for the 11th straight time overall and a franchise-record 10th straight at home to open the season.
