TORONTO -- Ken Harvey hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the ninth inning as the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 9-6 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday.

Harvey drove in a career-high four runs for the Royals, who have won five of six. Kansas City improved to 17-4.

A crowd of 17,197, the largest since opening day, turned out three days after the World Health Organization warned against travel to Toronto because of the outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome.

Shortstop Chris Woodward and other Blue Jays signed autographs before the game despite the SARS scare.

Mike Sweeney singled off Jeff Tam (0-2) and Raul Ibanez singled off Jason Kershner before Harvey hit a shot to center for his third home run of the season. Harvey went 3-for-5.

Jason Grimsley (1-1) pitched two innings for the win. Rookie Mike MacDougal pitched the ninth for his major league-leading 10th save.

Trailing 4-2, the Royals scored four runs in the seventh off Toronto's struggling bullpen. Desi Relaford tied it with a two-run triple off Trevor Miller and Sweeney and Harvey hit RBI singles off Tam.

Toronto's Tom Wilson tied it at 6 in the eighth with a two-run double off Grimsley.

Kansas City starter Miguel Asencio settled down after allowing four runs in the first. The 22-year-old right-hander gave up four runs on seven hits in six innings.

After Relaford doubled in the first, Carlos Beltran hit an RBI grounder.

Carlos Delgado hit a two-run double and Josh Phelps followed with a two-run homer, giving Toronto a 4-1 lead in the bottom half.

Beltran's RBI single in the third cut it to 4-2.
