O's pound Royals 9-2 for 5th straight win
BALTIMORE 9, KANSAS CITY 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Baltimore Orioles got production
from throughout their lineup, while Scott Feldman shut down the
Kansas City Royals offense.



Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy each drove in three runs and the
Orioles defeated the Kansas City Royals 9-2 on Monday night to
extend their winning streak to a season-high five games.



Davis, who leads the majors with 97 RBIs, drove in a pair of
runs with a sixth-inning double and another with a sacrifice fly
in the first inning.



"I think it's huge anytime you swing the bats well at the
beginning of the game," Davis said. "It puts some pressure on
the opposing pitcher and gives you more opportunities.



"The way we're swinging the bats we know that if one guy doesn't
do it, the next will do it. We're getting on base, running the
bases well and we're taking advantage of every opportunity."



Hardy homered, his 17th of the season, in the four-run sixth
with Davis aboard. He picked up another RBI in the third when
Davis scored on his ground out.



"Getting a lot of base runners and getting some timely hits,
it's a good combination," Hardy said.



"We had a lot of opportunities to score more, too. We got a lot
of guys on-base early, with hits and walks, Nate (McLouth)
leading it off sets the tone. And he's stolen 25 bases, too.
That puts pressure on the pitcher to be quicker to the plate
which helps the hitters and it puts pressure on the defense."



The Orioles' 18-hit attack matched their season high and
included seven players with multi-hit games, including three
each by rookie Henry Urrutia, Nick Markakis and Hardy. McLouth
reached base five times - two hits and three walks.



"Henry (Urrutia) had some great at-bats," Orioles manager Buck
Showalter said. "J.J. had the homer. Nate was on base all night.
Chris settled back in pretty good. It was good offense all
night."



Feldman (2-1), who was acquired in a July 2 trade from the
Chicago Cubs, was the beneficiary of the offense, picking up the
victory.



"It's a great way to open the second half, clicking on all
cylinders," Feldman said. "The offense has been great. The
defense has gotten the job done and now the pitching is getting
it going."



Feldman limited the Royals to five singles and two runs over
eight innings.



"I was just throwing strikes," Feldman said. "I kind of got away
from it in the fourth inning and walked some guys, then we got
back to it, and let the defense do the work behind me."



Royals manager Ned Yost summed up the defeat in four words: "It
was a clunker."



Wade Davis (4-9) took the loss, giving up four runs, two
unearned, in 2 2-3 innings and seven hits and three walks before
being replaced by Luis Mendoza.



Davis has lost his past four starts with a 10.91 ERA in that
span, giving up 21 runs and 24 hits and 12 walks. Davis has only
one win in his past 11 starts.



"I'm just inconsistent," Davis said. "I've got to get deep in
games. I fell behind in the count too much, a leadoff walk."



Rookie David Lough drove in one Kansas City run and scored the
other. His single in the fourth scored Salvador Perez. Lough
scored in the third on Alcides Escobar's sacrifice fly.



Mike Moustakas committed a fielding error in the first inning,
ending the Royals' streak at 11 games without an error, which
matched a club record. Moustakas' error on Manny Machado's
hopper led to two unearned runs.



"I just missed it," Moustakas said. "No excuses for it. It's
routine as it gets. It's a 5-4-3 double play and I just didn't
make the play. That's an additional 20 pitches for Wade. It's
going to sting for a while."



Notes: RHP Felipe Paulino, who had Tommy John surgery last July
and remains on the 60-day disabled list, threw 25 pitches to
hitters without shoulder soreness that had plagued him recently.
... The Royals acquired OF Gorkys Hernandez from the Marlins in
a minor league trade. Hernandez hit .192 in 70 games last season
with Pittsburgh and Miami. Hernandez, who hit .275 in 90 games
this season with Triple-A New Orleans, was assigned to the
Royals' Omaha club in the Pacific Coast League. ... Orioles RHP
Jason Hammel, who starts Tuesday, is 6-2 with a 4.25 ERA in 11
road starts.
