KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brad Keller kept up his recent pitching surge with another strong outing.

Keller gave up a home run to the first batter of the game — Cedric Mullins — but quickly settled in to pitch eight strong innings in the Kansas City Royals’ 9-2 win over the Baltimore Royals in a matchup of the teams with the worst records in the majors.

‘Every time he takes the mound, you expect him to keep you in the ballgame,’ Royals manager Ned Yost said. ‘He just did what he does so well. He keeps the ball on the ground and did a nice job doing that.’
