OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nicky Lopez hit his first major league homer in the stadium where he played college ball, Homer Bailey (5-6) allowed two hits in six shutout innings and Kansas City beat Detroit in the first big league regular season game played in Nebraska.

The game at TD Ameritrade Park coincided with the buildup to the College World Series, which begins Saturday. All eight CWS teams were among the sellout crowd of 25,454 and participated in a pregame ceremony with the major league teams.

Lopez played at Creighton University, whose campus is six blocks away, and hit just one home run in 75 games at TD Ameritrade from 2014-16.
