Reynolds Leads Orioles Over Royals
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Mark Reynolds homered, doubled and drove in five runs as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 8-2 Tuesday night.
Reynolds hit his 24th home run in the ninth with Nick Markakis and Vladimir Guerrero aboard to break open a 5-2 game. Chris Davis also homered in the ninth off Royals rookie left-hander Everett Teaford, who was just recalled from Triple-A Omaha.
Reynolds, who leads the Orioles with 60 RBIs, stroked a two-out double in the third, scoring J.J. Hardy, who snapped an 0-for-18 slide with a single, and Markakis, who had walked.
Reynolds' five RBIs matched a career high, done three times previously.
Alfredo Simon curbed the Royals on four hits for seven innings to pick up the victory.
