Luke's run ends
Photos
Orioles 7, Royals 3
The homer Luke Hochevar allowed was a solo shot, but he allowed 11 hits overall. (Rob Carr/AP)
Luke Hochevar's string of four straight winning decisions came to a close. Hochevar was solid until the fifth, when Baltimore put up four as the game started slipping away. John Buck hit a two-run homer in the eighth, but KC had just three baserunners through the first six frames.
