June 6, 2016 The Royals took a 1-0 lead but gave up 4 unanswered runs to Baltimore to lose their 5th straight game.

Attempting to turn a double play, Orioles second baseman Jonathon Schoop let loose a wild throw that went directly downward into Cheslor Cuthberg's forearm. The freak play led to the only run scored for Kansas City.

It was a short-lived lead for the Royals.

Mark Trumbo and Matt Wieters drilled solo homers back-to-back during a 3-run seventh inning. An insurance run in the 8th sealed the Royals' 5th consecutive loss following their road sweep to Cleveland.

The Royals continue the series against Baltimore on Tuesday and Wednesday, with both games starting at 6:05 PM.
