Let the good times roll: Royals want to build an impressive series opener



BALTIMORE – The Kansas City Royals showed something different at the first contest of the three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday night – Power.

Now, the question arises as to whether the Royals will be able to show something of this blow in the second game of the series on Wednesday night at Camden Yards.

Kansas City ranked 28th in the series in the major leagues with 29 homers in its first 34 games. However, the Royals scored four goals on Tuesday and 15-7 on Tuesday against Baltimore.

On Wednesday, the Royals (12-23) will face Orioles right-hander Andrew Cashner (1-4, 4.89 ERA), who has already admitted nine homers in 38 2/3 innings this season. Cashner has a 0-2 career record against Kansas City with a 1

.69 ERA in three starts.

It's a matter of Camden Yards, when the weather gets warmer, the ball flies out, and that's exactly what happened on Tuesday, when the two teams came together for eight homeruns.

Mike Moustakas scored two homers and finished in five runs and Kansas City finished with 20 hits. The Royals used these four first-inning homers to score 10 runs and take a big early lead.

"It was fantastic, a lot of fun," Moustaka's reporters said. "Once we get the job back to the top of the Order … I do not think I've ever experienced anything like that before."

Eric Skoglund will start in the second game of the series for the Royals. The left-hander is 1-2 with a 6.84 ERA and would probably be happy to see the power of the Royals. Skoglund received a lot of support in his last start, a 10-6 victory as he posted five runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings.

"I just was not able to stay ahead and they had some good at-bats," Skoglund told reporters. "I can not be prouder of these guys, they've absolutely competed and set up runs for me."

This will be his first career appearance against the Orioles.

The Orioles (8-27) have lost seven consecutive games. They dropped all six on West Coast Swing through Anaheim and Oakland last week, and they did not do anything on Monday before the start of that series.

Baltimore could not put it all together this year. The Orioles sometimes got pitching, hitting and defense, but can not do everything at the right time.

Manager Buck Showalter said they will continue to work on improvements in these frustrating first days until the 2018 season.

"We grind it every day, everyone," Showalter said. "I have the confidence that we have people and that (things) will eventually turn – maybe tomorrow."

The only good news that emerged from losing the series to the Royals on Tuesday was the return of All-Star Secondary baseball Jonathan Schoop from the Disabled List. He got a two-run single that helped the Baltimore offense.

Infielder Engelb Vielma was sent back to Triple-A Norfolk to make room for Schoop.

The offensive of the Orioles was surprisingly ineffective this season. They scored seven runs on Tuesday but they came after Kansas City finished the game.

Baltimore has now got back most of its line-up for the first time this season. Mark Trumbo has returned as well as Schoop, two key players who missed much of the first five weeks.

Nevertheless, the orioles did not appear on the plate at certain times, which made them very good last year. In the ninth game on Tuesday they scored four goals after Kansas City had already gone 15-3 in the lead.
