Royals look for another solid effort vs. Orioles

The Kansas City Royals were able to put everything together in the first game of their three-game series against the host Baltimore Orioles on Monday night. Now, the Royals want to see if they can do it again when the two teams meet again Tuesday.

In the series opener, the Royals did not get a hit until the sixth inning but scored three times in that frame and twice more in the seventh en route to a 5-4 victory. Nicky Lopez broke up Baltimore starter John Means' no-hit bid in the sixth and then homered off Gabriel Ynoa on the first pitch of the seventh.

Nick Dini then homered on the next pitch, and that gave the Royals a 5-2 lead. That was his first major league homer -- in just his fourth major league game -- and proved crucial as Kansas City held on.
