Royals update

Same position in the standings, different year. The Royals (19-32) are in last place in the American League Central. They have lost four in a row and are 9-18 at home. Alex Gordon, the second overall pick in the 2005 draft who's being called "the next George Brett," is batting .191. Kansas City is 0-3 against the Orioles this season and 12-33 against them after the 2000 season. The Orioles (23-27) took two of three in their only trip to Kauffman Stadium last season, losing the opener, 7-5, in a game that included two home runs by Mark Teahen. Adam Loewen collected his first major league win in the series. The Orioles batted .330 against Kansas City last year.
