      The Royals get hammered by the Orioles 9 to 2

      Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy each drove in three runs and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Kansas City Royals 9-2 on 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 - 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.
