Miguel Tejada, Ramon Hernandez, Javy Lopez, and Melvin Mora all homered as the Baltimore Orioles routed the Kansas City Royals 11-1. Kris Benson pitched 7 solid innings, giving up 4 hits, 1 run, 1 walks and striking out 5. Mark Redman was not as lucky, going 6.1 giving up 6 hits, 5 runs, 3 walks, and 1 strike out. Redman's struggles were nothing compared to those of Chris Booker. In his debut for the Royals, Booker pitched a clean 7th, but gave up home runs to Hernadez, Lopez, and Mora in the 8th and did not record an out. That inning gives Booker an ERA of 54.00. The O's look for the sweep tomorrow.
