Baltimore - The Kansas City Royals fell behind 2-0 early to the Baltimore Orioles and battled their way back into the game, but it wasn't enough as they fell 3-2 in ten innings.

Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie struggled early on, giving up two runs in the opening frame. Before he even recorded two outs in the inning, Guthrie had allowed two runs on two hits and a walk to dig his team an early hole.

However, he settled down after that, not allowing another run in his seven innings of work.

The Royals chipped away at their early deficit by first scoring in the third when Eric Hosmer doubled home Alcides Escobar. Both teams traded zeroes on the scoreboard until the Royals struck again in the sixth.

Tying the game at 2-2, Justin Maxwell singled to centerfield, which scored Alex Gordon. With momentum on their side, the Royals failed to capitalize as the score remained tied.

After Mizzou graduate Aaron Crow pitched his way out of trouble in the ninth, the game was headed for extra innings. Following a scoreless top half of the frame, the Orioles loaded the bases with nobody out.

Pitcher Louis Coleman was able to record one out, but couldn't avoid trouble against outfielder Nick Markakis. The Orioles' slugger wacked a base hit down the left field line plating the game-winning run for Baltimore.

With the loss, the Royals are now 11-12 on the season. They will play the Orioles in the rubber match of the series at 12:35 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
