Starling hits first two homers as a pro
TORONTO -- Bubba Starling has gone deep for the first time, and the second time, as a professional.

Starling, the outfielder who was the Royals' top pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, banged a two-run homer for Burlington, N.C., in the first inning at Danville, Va., on Monday night and followed with a three-run blast in the seventh inning of a 13-5 win over the Braves' Rookie team.

Starling also had a run-scoring single for a six-RBI night.

In his first four games, Starling was 5-for-17 (.294), with eight RBIs. He's from Gardner, Kan., near Kansas City.
