Halladay helps Blue Jays beat Royals 4-0

TORONTO (AP) - Roy Halladay pitched a seven-hitter to become the first 10-game winner in the major leagues and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Kansas City Royals 4-0 on Sunday.

Aaron Hill and Lyle Overbay homered for Toronto, which won the rubber game of the weekend series.

Halladay needed just 97 pitches to record his 43rd career complete game and 12th career shutout. He was coming off a career-high 133 pitches in a complete-game victory over the Los Angeles Angels in his last start.

The right-hander allowed just seven singles while winning his seventh straight decision. He struck out six and walked none.
