KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Eric Hosmer hit two home runs and Alcides Escobar drove in the winning run in the ninth to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night.

David Lough singled and scored the game-ending run when Escobar doubled off the fence in left center with one out in the ninth.

Hosmer homered in the first and his two-run home run in the eighth tied the score at 3. It was Hosmer's third multi-homer game and his second this season.

Darren O'Day (5-1) took the loss, while Luke Hochevar (3-1), picked up the victory after working a scoreless ninth.
