ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Carl Crawford had three hits and three RBIs and to lead Tampa Bay past Kansas City 10-4 on Monday.

Crawford, who stole his league-leading 49th base, went 3 for 3 against Kansas City starter Zack Greinke (10-7) after having just one hit in 16 previous at-bats against him.

Willy Aybar hit solo homers from both sides of the plate for the Rays, who won nine of 10 games in the season series with Kansas City. Aybar homered left-handed off Greinke in the fifth and went deep from the right side against Ron Mahay two innings later.

Greinke allowed six runs and 10 hits over five innings, and is 0-4 in six starts since his last win on June 28.

Tampa Bay’s Scott Kazmir (6-6) gave up three runs and six hits in six-plus innings.
