BALTIMORE (AP) — Tyler Wells pitched six strong innings to earn his first victory of the season and the Baltimore Orioles used a six-run fifth inning to surge past the Kansas City Royals 6-1.

Baltimore has won four of five for the first time this season and finished its homestand 6-4. Kansas City has dropped to a season-high eight games under .500.

The game was a makeup of Saturday's postponed game to cap a rain-altered series. Friday's game was washed out and made up as part of a doubleheader the teams split Sunday.
