Kendrys Morales, Ben Zobrist power Royals past Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Kendrys Morales hit his 15th homer, Edinson Volquez pitched into the seventh inning and the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 on Friday night.

Reds vs. Royals, Game 1: Preview and Predictions Thread

Kansas City Royals @ Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, August 18, 2015 7:10 PM EDTGABP Raisel Iglesias vs. Edinson Volquez Raise hell, Raisel! This game will have all the relevant feels to see Johnny Cueto back in Cincinnati, but it's a different former Red that'll actually get the ball tonight.

Edinson Volquez, Royals unravel in eighth, fall to Tigers

The once-cruising Volquez allowed four consecutive base runners to reach to start the eighth inning, blowing a two-run lead in an eventual 7-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium. read more
