(AP photo) Whit son wins on the road By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Given the safe haven of a pit-' ching mound on the road, Ed Whitson found what he was looking for. Whitson, l-l, scattered five hits over (i 2-ti innings for his first victory of the season, and Don Mattingly hit three doubles and drove in five runs as the New York Yankees defeated the Kansas City Royals 8-4 Monday night.

It was Whitson's first start since Yankee Manager Lou Piniella announced the 30-year- old right-hander would only start road games because of the hostile reaction of fans at Yankee Stadium. Elsewhere in the American League, it was Detroit 5, Boston 4; Cleveland 7, Baltimore 0; Toronto 7, Texas 6; Minnesota 5, Seattle 2; and Oakland 6, California 2.
