Kansas City, winners of four straight, will host the surprisingly red-hot Baltimore Orioles for a two game series starting Wednesday night.
The Royals, fresh from winning four in a row, will host the surprising first place team of the AL East - Baltimore - for a two game series starting Wednesday. Felipe Paulino will get only his third start of the season, after starting his 2012 campaign by beating the Yankees last month.
Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas has reached base safely in 22 straight games, entering Wednesday with five homers and 16 RBIs:
"I've just been trying to do anything I can to help us win," Moustakas said. "We've been playing really good baseball up to this point. I'm just trying to be consistent. That's what this game is about, just going out there every day and putting consistent at-bats together and trying to have consistent approaches."
