Alberto HR gives Orioles 4-1 win over Royals, ending skid

BALTIMORE (AP) It had been a while since the Baltimore Orioles celebrated a victory, so forgive them for getting carried away after finally nabbing their 40th win of a very long season.

Rookie Hunter Harvey got a ride in a laundry cart and wheeled into the shower, where he got drenched in the wake of his first big league victory.

The celebration was put into motion after the Orioles used Hanser Alberto's tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning to beat the Kansas City Royals 4-1 Tuesday night, ending an eight-game skid.
