    Montreal offense comes alive after rain delay

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Zach Day pitched a six-hitter for his second career shutout, and the Montreal Expos ended a three-game skid with an 8-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals in the first game of a doubleheader Thursday.

    After Wednesday night's game was rained out, the start of this one was delayed by showers for 1 hour, 52 minutes.

    Brad Wilkerson homered and drove in three runs for the Expos, who won for just the fifth time in 17 games. Jamey Carroll, getting a rare start at second base, scored three runs and had three of Montreal's 16 hits. Orlando Cabrera also had three hits.

    Day (5-6) struck out four and walked none, the 10th time in 12 starts this season he's allowed three runs or fewer. His only other complete game was a shutout at Milwaukee on May 1, 2003.

    Dennys Reyes (2-1) allowed 11 hits and five runs in 6 2/3 innings.

    Tomo Ohka (3-5) was to start the nightcap against Kansas City's Jimmy Gobble (3-3).

    Tony Batista made it 5-0 in the seventh with a sacrifice fly off Reyes. The Expos added three in the eighth on Wilkerson's leadoff homer off Nate Field, Jose Vidro's RBI single and a throwing error by left fielder Byron Gettis.

    Cabrera had an RBI single in the first, and Reyes walked Carroll with the bases loaded. Vidro's groundout made it 3-0 in the second, then Wilkerson hit an RBI single in the fifth.

    Game notes

    The 16 hits were one shy of Montreal's season high. ... Royals DH Ken Harvey went 0-for-4 in his first game since colliding with RHP Jason Grimsley on Sunday, ending his career-best 15-game hitting streak.
