Lopez HR helps KC beat Tigers 7-3 in 1st MLB game in Omaha

Nicky Lopez hit his first major league homer in the stadium where he played college ball, Homer Bailey allowed two hits in six shutout innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 Thursday night in the first big league regular season...

Cool factoid circulating in the press box at TD Ameritrade Park: When the Royals' Nicky Lopez played at Creighton, he went homerless in his first 74 games here. He then homered in his 75th -- and last -- game at the venue as a collegian. Then, in his first game back here as a pro, he homered in his first at-bat, again curling one inside the right-field foul pole.

Nicky Lopez went deep for the Royals off Cy Young candidate Matthew Boyd. Great moment early in this contest to put Kansas City up 1-0. Lopez played his college ball right here TD Ameritrade Park for Creighton. That was his first big league home run.

Cool scene at TD Ameritrade Park. All eight College World Series teams on the field, with a player from each team throwing a first pitch to former CWS participants with the Royals and Tigers.

Alex Gordon has a nerve issue with his back after getting plunked last night, so that's why he's absent from the Royals' lineup for tonight's game in Omaha. Ned Yost said he wrestled with the decision to hold Gordon out and apologized to fans coming out to see the native Nebraskan play in the first-ever regular-season game in the Cornhusker state.

Sadly, Nebraska native Alex Gordon is not in the lineup for tonight's game in Omaha between the Royals and Tigers. Gordon was hit by a pitch in last night's game. We'll find out more from KC manager Ned Yost shortly.

Not sure who the statues are but they appear to be very happy. People are already pouring into Omaha for the CWS. Cool to see all the schools represented.

Perfect day in Omaha for the first-ever MLB regular-season game in the state of Nebraska.
