The Royals didn’t waste any time in Game 2.

Cole McKenzie led off the game with a triple and Matt Dillon blasted a three-run home run as Billings took control with a four spot in the first inning.

That was more than enough run support for Ethan Davis, who scattered seven hits and let his defense do the work in a complete-game win.

Cameron Maciel joined Dillon with three RBIs, while Joe Zimmer poked three hits in the win.
