• Royals beat Orioles, halfway to World Series


    Baltimore: The Kansas City Royals moved halfway to their first World Series since 1985 with a 6-4 victory at Baltimore, stretching their unbeaten October playoff run to six games.

    Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain drove in ninth-inning runs to provide the margin of victory as the Royals took a 2-0 lead in Major League Baseball’s best-of-seven American League final.

    “Our team is very confident but we have to go out and do it on the field,” Cain said. “To be on this run is a lot of fun.”

    The Royals, who beat Oakland in the wildcard game and swept the Los Angeles Angels in the best-of-five division series, can move to the brink of the AL crown with a victory in game three Monday at Kansas City.
