Sports Minute: Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) - Matt Adams drove in four runs, A.J. Pierzynski had three hits in his St. Louis debut, and the Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 6-3 yesterday to stop a four-game skid. Shelby Miller returned to the Cardinals' rotation and pitched effectively into the sixth inning. Adams hit a two-run double in the first and a two-run triple in a four-run seventh that was capped by Pierzynski's RBI single.

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid is serious about what he's said about competition at the cornerback position. Sean Smith, last year's starter at right cornerback, moved to the second team for the last four days of organized team activities. His status hasn't changed three days into training camp. The Chiefs are in transition following a 2013 season where the defense ranked 25th against the pass.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Billy Butler homered for the second straight game, and the Kansas City Royals overcame a five-run deficit to beat Cleveland 7-5 last night for their fifth straight win. A day after his pinch-hit, two-run homer in the eighth inning beat Cleveland, Butler connected for a tiebreaking shot in the fifth.

TORONTO (AP) - Substitute Jacob Peterson scored in the 80th minute to help 10-man Sporting Kansas City beat Toronto FC 2-1 last night. The former Toronto midfielder took advantage of Toronto's inability to clear a deflected cross and poked the ball past goalkeeper Joe Bendik. Kansas City has won four straight and is 6-0-1 in its last seven games. It also extended its club-record road winning streak to five games.
