Reynolds leads Orioles over Royals


Mark Reynolds hits a 3-run homer and a 2-run double in a win over the Royals.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)   Mark Reynolds homered, doubled and drove in five runs as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 8-2 Tuesday night.  Reynolds hit his 24th home run in the ninth with Nick Markakis and Vladimir Guerrero aboard to break open a 4-2 game.  Chris Davis also homered in the ninth off Royals rookie left-hander Everett Teaford, who was just recalled from Triple-A Omaha.  Reynolds, who leads the Orioles with 60 RBIs, stroked a two-out double in the third, scoring J.J. Hardy, who snapped an 0-for-18 slide with a single, and Markakis, who had walked.  Reynolds’ five RBIs matched a career high, done three times previously.  Alfredo Simon curbed the Royals on four hits for seven innings to pick up the victory.
