KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Ryan Mountcastle hit two-run homers in consecutive innings and added five RBIs as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 11-7 on Tuesday night.
Adley Rutschman had four hits and drove in a run for the raging Orioles.
Tyler Wells (2-1) allowed three hits in six innings, but they were all homers: Bobby Witt Jr.’s opener with a shot, a two-run home run by Puerto Rican MJ Meléndez and a solo shot by Venezuelan Salvador Pérez .
In addition, Wells gave away three tickets and prescribed four strikeouts.
Pérez, who added a two-run homer in the seventh inning, left in the eighth when Anthony Santander’s bat caught the catcher’s glove.
The catcher suffered a blow to his middle finger, and his compatriot Freddy Fermín played the rest of the game.
Ryan Yarbrough (0-4) matched a Royals record, striking out Baltimore’s first five batters, including Mountcastle, before it got messy in the fourth inning.
For the Orioles, the Venezuelan Santander 5- with two runs scored. The Dominican Jorge Mateo 5-1 with an RBI. The Mexican Ramón Urías 4-1 with a push.
For the Royals, the Venezuelans Pérez 3-2 with three runs scored and three produced, Edward Olivares 4-0, Maikel García 4-2 with one run scored. Puerto Rican Meléndez 4-1 with a run scored and two RBIs
