Kansas City Royals
On the surface, beating the Royals isn’t a big deal but winning in walk off fashion against Joakim Soria who the O’s have had trouble with in the past is big.
Adam Jones knew exactly how to handle the trip around the bases after the first walkoff homer of his big league career.
The only luck Chris Tillman had was bad. Chris Getz led off the game with an infield single and that opened the floodgates for a four-run first inning, and the Kansas City Royals wound up thumping Tillman and the Baltimore Orioles 9-1 on Thursday afternoon.
