KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Eric Hosmer was looking to make amends for his error that led to two unearned runs. Hosmer hit two homer and Alcides Escobar drove in the winning run in the ninth to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night. After Hosmer failed to handle Adam Jones bouncer in the fourth, Matt Wieters hit a two-run two-out homer off Ervin Santana. "It stinks when you make an error and two batters later a guy hits a two-run homer," Hosmer said. "I wanted a chance to redeem myself." Both of Hosmers home runs were off left-hander Wei-Yen Chen. Hosmer is hitting .333 against left-handers. "I guess so," Hosmer said. "Thats what the numbers say." But he entered the game with only one home run in 104 at-bats off left-handers. Hosmer homered in the first and his two-run home run in the eighth tied the score at 3. It was Hosmers third career multi-homer game and his second this season. David Lough singled and scored the game-ending run when Escobar doubled off the fence in left-centre with one out in the ninth. "When I hit it, I thought there was a chance it was gone," Escobar said. "I wasnt trying to hit a home run." Instead, Nate McLouth nearly caught it at the wall. "I was about 3, 4, 5 inches away from catching it," McLouth said. "I didnt miss it by very much." Instead, the ball kicked away off the top padding, giving Lough enough time to score from first. Darren ODay (5-1) took the loss, while Luke Hochevar (3-1), picked up the victory after working a scoreless ninth. "I was trying to throw away and it got in," ODay said of Escobars first-pitch double "Nate gave it a good try." Chen, who went on the disabled list May 13 with a right oblique strain before returning July 10, departed after Hosmers second home run with Lorenzo Cain aboard with one out in the eighth. Chen gave up a home run to Hosmer on a full-count pitch in the first inning. Chen had not permitted a home run in his previous four starts. He retired the next 12 hitters after Hosmers first home run until Escobars single in the fifth. "He just made a couple of mistakes and the ball ran back over the plate," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "They were very similar pitches. He was really good. "He threw the ball really well. For us not to score much and still have the lead, thats a tribute to Santana and Chen, both. I thought Wei-Yin pitched as well as Santana did, or better." A bevy of scouts were in attendance to watch Santana. The right-hander can be a free agent after this season and it has been reported he would be dealt before the July 31 trading deadline without a player having to clear waivers. "Not at all," Santana said of the attention he pays to trade rumours. "If anything is going to happen, its going to happen no matter what." Santana gave up three runs, only one earned, on seven hits in eight innings to lower his ERA to 3.06, which ranks eighth in the American League. "Santana is a good pitcher," McLouth said. "That run in the eighth I thought was going to be big. He throws three pitches for strikes. His slider is one of the best. He keeps it low. Hes throwing in the low 90s and he doesnt walk anybody." The Orioles added a run in the eighth to take a 3-1 lead. Brian Roberts and McLouth led off with singles. After Manny Machado bunted them over, Santana walked Nick Markakis intentionally to load the bases. Roberts scored on Jones fielders choice grounder to shortstop. NOTES: LF Alex Gordon, a first-time All-Star Game selection this year, was not in the Royals lineup. He is hitting .201 with only four extra-base hits in his past 41 games. ... Utility player Elliot Johnson made his first outfield start of the season. ... The Orioles optioned DH-3B Danny Valencia, who was 0 for 22 since June 17, to Triple-A Norfolk to make roster space for RHP Francisco Rodriguez, who was acquired Tuesday from Milwaukee. ... Cain batted leadoff for only the fourth time this season. . The Orioles signed Cuban OF Dariel Alvarez, 24, to a minor league contract. He will report to the Orioles complex in Sarasota, Fla., before being assigned to Class-A Frederick. After defecting in 2012 to Mexico, Alvarez hit .317 for Tuxpan in the Mexican League. Rui Patricio Portugal Jersey . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high -- proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night. Miguel Veloso Portugal Jersey . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. Ricardo Costa Portugal Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. Joao Moutinho Portugal Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July.Sky Sports F1 pundit Johnny Herbert is keeping faith with Lewis Hamilton and is backing the world champion to finally secure his first win of the season in the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend. Hamilton has made a torrid start to the season and already trails Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg by 43 points in the race for the Drivers Championship.The 31-year-old has already suffered two separate engine failures and his chances of denying Rosberg a fourth straight win in the Russian GP were brought to a halt by a water pressure leak as he had to settle for second place. But Herbert thinks Hamiltons performance in Sochi will have given him a huge boost and feels his luck will finally turn in Barcelona and is prepared to back the Briton at 5/4 with Sky Bet.The F1 analyst said: Eventually you feel that Lewis is going to have a clear weekend where he isnt hit with mechanical troubles, makes a good start and if so Id back him to get his first win of the season.I dont believe hes driving badly, his drive to finish second in Russia showed that he just needs a little more luck and this weekend Ive got a good feeling he might get it. Herberts Tips Johnnys tipping Lewis Hamilton to complete a race hat-trick (win, pole, fastest lap) at 9/2 The former F1 driver is also prepared to take a punt on Hamilton to complete a race hat-trick (win, pole and fastest lap) at odds of 9/2 and end Rosbergs 100 per cent record this season.ddddddddddddHe said: Im putting a lot of faith in Lewis this weekend but I like the price for the hat-trick and hes in the fastest car, why shouldnt he claim pole, the fastest lap and career win number 44.Herbert successfully tipped up Sergio Perez to secure his first points of the season at 6/4 in Sochi and is again siding with the Force India driver on the Circuit de Catalunya at odds of 11/8 to get in the points.Force India are bringing some major upgrades to their car which should help them around this Barcelona track, he added.Despite getting a puncture in Russia, Sergio still battled back to claim his first points of the season and Im expecting him to follow that up with a strong showing on Sunday.Johnny Herberts Charity tips this season are supporting Sporting Memories.
