KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy each drove in three runs and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Kansas City Royals 9-2 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.
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.
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. Nate McLouth reached base five times on two hits and three walks.
Scott 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.
