"I have to prepare when guys are in scoring position like second and third," Orlando said. "I know they're coming inside hard. That time, he only threw one inside, and I drove it [to right field]. I just tried to put contact on the ball and hit a fly ball somewhere."
Orlando laughed when asked if he thought the ball was deep enough to score Perez.
"For Salvador, he was hustling, hustling," he said.
Orlando's next time up, he smacked a homer off Tillman
"I just waited for a fastball there because I'm so late on everything," Orlando said. "And he threw me one down there, and I put a really good swing there."
The key for Orlando, he said, is keeping the game simple.
"Just not trying to do too much," he said. "Just try to hit it somewhere hard. Be prepared for fastballs. When I get a curveball or a changeup, just try to put good contact there."
Royals manager Ned Yost appreciates Orlando's skill set.
"The thing about Paulo is that he's like Salvy -- he's dangerous," Yost said. "You just don't know from at-bat to at-bat, because he's got life in his bat. You make a mistake, and he can drive it a long way, like he did today."
