KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) cheap Omar Infante jersey led a seven run charge in the sixth inning to support a strong start by Kris Medlen, helping the Kansas City Royals jerseys beat the Baltimore Orioles jerseys 8 3 on Monday night.
Despite working on a pitch count, Medlen (2 0) lasted six innings in his first start since Sept. 27, 2013, with Atlanta. The right hander allowed five hits one of them a two run homer by cheap Adam Jones jersey in the first inning while striking out six without a walk.
Medlen, who returned last month after his second Tommy John surgery, made seven appearances out of the Kansas City bullpen before replacing cheap Jeremy Guthrie jersey in the starting rotation.
Infante followed a tying, two run homer by cheap Mike Moustakas jersey in the sixth with a two run triple, then scampered home when the throw to third base skittered away. cheap Lorenzo Cain jersey drove in two more later in the inning, spoiling what had been a promising start by cheap Ubaldo Jimenez jersey.
Jimenez (9 8) allowed seven runs and 10 hits in 5 2 3 innings.
The loss was the fifth straight for Baltimore and sixth in seven games. It carried a little added sting in that it was the first meeting cheap jerseys between the teams since the Royals jerseys swept the Orioles jerseys in the AL Championship Series on their surprising run to the World Series.
The two run homer by Jones and a run scoring double by Steve Clevenger in the fourth inning got the Orioles jerseys off to a good start, and Jimenez was cruising through five. The only run he had allowed was on an RBI groundout by cheap Eric Hosmer jersey in the third inning.
Things finally unraveled for Jimenez in the sixth.
Hosmer doubled with one out and Moustakas sent a pitch soaring into the right field stands to knot the game 3 all. cheap Salvador Perez jersey singled, Alex Rios hit a double and Infante sent a triple into the gap in left center, sliding into third base ahead of the throw. When it skipped away to the third base dugout, Infante clambered to his feet and chugged on home.
cheap Alcides Escobar jersey and cheap Ben Zobrist jersey followed with hits before Cain’s two run double made it a seven run inning, matching a season best for the Royals jerseys.
Medlen’s night was done by that point. He threw 69 pitches, one fewer than manager Ned Yost had said was his limit. Bullpen buddies Franklin Morales and Luke Hochevar did the reset. Hardy (groin) went on the DL and INF OF cheap Steve Pearce jersey (left oblique) was reinstated. . RHP cheap Mike Wright jersey (calf) will start for Triple A Norfolk on Thursday.

Orioles jerseys: RHP cheap Miguel Gonzalez jersey tries to bounce back from an awful start against Minnesota in which he allowed seven runs in five innings of a 15 2 rout.
Royals jerseys: LHP cheap Danny Duffy jersey has dominated the Orioles jerseys in three career outings, going 1 1 with a 1.46 ERA. Last May, he retired the first 20 batters he faced.
