BALTIMORE (AP) -- Jason Hammel pitched six shutout innings, Chris
Davis homered and drove in three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles
cruised past the Kansas City Royals 8-2 on Friday night.

Adam Jones and J.J. Hardy had two RBIs apiece for the Orioles,
now 28-1 when hitting a home run. Davis hit Baltimore's
league-leading 70th homer of the season in the seventh inning with
a man on to make it 8-0.

The crowd of 28,954 included nearly 11,000 walk-up fans, a
Camden Yards record. The attendance was a testament to the
excitement the first-place Orioles have generated after a run of 14
straight losing seasons.

Hammel (6-1) gave up five hits, walked one and struck out seven.
Obtained in an offseason trade with Colorado, Hammel is one big
reason why Baltimore (29-17) owns the best record in the AL
