During the Royals’ 5-4 win Monday over the Orioles in Baltimore, the bottom two hitters in the Kansas City lineup hit home runs on consecutive pitches. Yep, two pitches, two home runs.
In the seventh inning, the Royals led 3-2 when second baseman Nicky Lopez led off with a blast to right field. Catcher Nick Dini then stepped up and hit a towering blast to left-center field.
