Alcides Escobar hit a double to score the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, after Mike Moustakas sac bunted Terrance Gore to second and the Royals remained perfect in the playoffs, beating the Baltimore Orioles 6-4 for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven matchup ALCS.
Lorenzo Cain had four hits, scored twice and drove in a run for the wild-card Royals, who are 6-0 in the playoffs this year, including 4-0 on the road.
Moustakas homered for the fourth time in five games as the Royals won their ninth straight in the postseason, a string dating way back to the 1985 World Series.
Game 3 is Monday at Kauffman Stadium. Former Oriole Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals against either Wei-Yin Chen or Miguel Gonzalez.
