Royals outslug Orioles to win playoff opener


BALTIMORE: Kansas City smashed the fewest home runs in Major League Baseball this season, but the Royals found their form on Friday to beat the Baltimore Orioles at their own power-hitting game. Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas blasted 10th-inning homers to lift the Royals over Baltimore 8-6 in their best-of-seven American League finals opener. Gordon, who also hit a three-run double in the third inning, was hit in the neck by a pitch in the eighth inning but stayed in the game to become the first Royal in 29 years to knock in four runs in a playoff game.
