BALTIMORE, May 9 (UPI) -- Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer each hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning Thursday, vaulting Kansas City to a 6-2 decision over Baltimore.

Jeremy Guthrie remained unbeaten and helped the Royals avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of the Orioles.

The fourth-inning home runs brought Kansas City back from an early 1-0 deficit and Mike Moustakas added a solo blast for the Royals in the seventh. An infield single by Salvador Perez brought home the final Kansas City run in the eighth.

Guthrie (5-0) allowed two runs on seven hits in six innings of work. One of Baltimore's runs came on the 10th homer of the year by Chris Davis.

Freddy Garcia (0-1) gave up four runs on five hits in six innings to take the loss.

Lorenzo Cain reached on a one-out, infield single in the fourth and Gordon followed with his home run to right.

Billy Butler then singled and Hosmer delivered a blast to right-center for his first home run of the campaign. Hosmer hit 14 homers last season.
