BALTIMORE, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- Alex Gordon belted a pair of home runs Saturday, boosting the Kansas City Royals to a rain-delayed 7-3 victory over Baltimore.

Gordon provided solo shots in the first and seventh innings while Salvador Perez added two-run clout and Billy Butler chipped in with a bases-empty bomb for the Royals.

The start of the contest was delayed more than 3 hours by rain.

Luis Mendoza (6-8) earned the victory, allowing three runs on seven hits through six innings as the Royals took their second triumph in a four-game series.

O's starter Chris Tillman (5-2) was rocked for six runs on six hits in a 5 2/3-inning effort.

Omar Quintanilla drove in a pair of runs for Baltimore.
