Jeff Francoeur and Billy Butler hit home runs, and Alcides Escobar had two hits to lead the Kansas City Royals over the Baltimore Orioles 4-2 on Sunday.
Francoeur had a terrific series, hitting 7 for 12 against the Orioles, including two homers. Butler had home runs in successive games for the Royals, who won two consecutive games for the first time since a four-game winning streak from May 12-15.
Baltimore's Adam Jones, whose six-year, $85.5 million contract extension was officially announced before the game, extended his career-long hitting streak to 18 - longest in the majors this season, with a fifth-inning double.
Tim Collins (2-0) was the winner with 1 1/3 perfect innings in relief of Kansas City starter Luke Hochevar. Brian Matusz (4-5) had a three-game winning streak ended, allowing four runs - three earned - and seven hits in six innings.
BEST OF MAXIM
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Jeff Francoeur had a terrific weekend, and the notoriously streaky hitter hopes the rest of the Royals will follow his success.
Francoeur had two more hits on Sunday, including a go-ahead home run, and Kansas City beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-2.
Francoeur finished 7 for 12 in the three-game series. In his last 14 games, he is batting .379 with all five of his...
Kansas City Royal third baseman Mike Moustakas received a rude surprise while running down a foul ball at Oriole Park on Friday, as a Baltimore security guard bumped into Moustakas while attempting to get out of the way.
I remains to be seen if Moustakas or any Royal player could have gotten to the ball, however, there is no doubt that the reaction by the Royal color commentator...
Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer hit a rare infield double in the seventh inning of Saturday's game at Camden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles. Hosmer chopped a slow grounder down the third base line that looked like it might roll foul. Orioles catcher Matt Weiters, pitcher Darren O'Day and third baseman Wilson Betemit all chose to watch the ball roll down...
Wil Myers (credits below) It’s that point in the season again. Your fantasy team is becoming a little stagnant and you need to make a little push, but you can’t afford to make a trade. In AL or NL-Only leagues, the waiver wires are so thin that it’s nearly impossible to make a huge claim for a guy whose already in the majors and will make a big difference. That’s why you...
KEEP YOUR HEAD UP
During Friday night’s Baltimore Orioles vs. Kansas City Royals game, the dangers of being on a field during a baseball game were apparent when Royals third baseman, Mike Moustakas, collided with a Baltimore Orioles security guard.
Orioles’ Robert Andino hit the fly ball that made Moustakas, left fielder Alex Gordon, and shortstop Alcides Escobar converge to foul territory. Meanwhile...

Kansas City Royals great George Brett took to his Twitter account earlier today and attempted to congratulate Derek Jeter on passing him on MLB’s all time hit list. But unfortunately, Brett’s attempt to call Jeter a “class act” went awry when he left out the letter “l” and capitalized the letter “a”.
Less than a minute later, Brett quickly fixes his mistake.
Found out why the Orioles are in first place, as even their security guards assist the team, like this one here taking Mike Moustakas out of the play and hobbling him temporarily. Genius. Honestly, this is the perfect Hunter Pence GIF, isn’t it? Everything he does is awkward, and him losing the ball in the
