Put away the brooms.

The Blue Jays plan for a sweep of the Royals was brushed aside Sunday as Kansas City rallied to pull out a 3-2 walk-off victory in the series finale.

Thus ends the Jays modest two-game win streak. The loss also leaves the Jays with a 3-3 record on their first road trip of the season and dropped them to 5-7 overall.

The Royals won it in the ninth with a one-out single by Alex Gordon which scored Chris Getz who had doubled.

Gordon ripped the first pitch from lefty reliever Darren Oliver into right and Getz easily beat the throw to the plate by Emilio Bonifacio.

The Jays won Saturday night’s contest 3-2 with just two hits, the big blow being a two-run homer by Jose Bautista, and it was the long ball by the Jays that looked like it could again be the difference.

The Jays would up their hit total to seven in this game with their blow being a solo home run by Edwin Encarnacion with one out in the sixth.
