BALTIMORE (AP) -- Brian Roberts homered, Ramon Hernandez and Adam
Jones had two RBIs apiece, and the Baltimore Orioles rebounded from
two straight frustrating losses by beating the Kansas City Royals
7-5 on Tuesday night.
Aubrey Huff had two hits and drove in a run for the Orioles.
After yielding late-inning homers Sunday and Monday, closer
George Sherrill entered with two on, one out and Baltimore up 7-3.
He retired Mike Aviles on a grounder before Mark Grudzuelanek hit a
two-run single. Sherrill then struck out Alex Gordon to earn his
Baltimore led 6-1 after three innings, then let the margin slip
to three runs before Roberts hit a solo shot in the seventh off
reliever Jimmy Gobble.
Gordon and Mark Teahan homered for the Royals, whose six-game
road winning streak ended.
