Royals 4, Tigers 0: Mike Pelfrey, offense fall flat in series finale

That wasn't fun. On the cusp of a big early season series win, the Detroit Tigers fell flat in their final game of an eight-game road trip, falling to the Kansas City Royals 4-0 at Kauffman Stadium. This marked the second consecutive Mike Pelfrey start in which the Tigers were shut out. The Royals got on the board early, scoring a run in a wacky first inning. After a pair of hits to open the frame, Lorenzo Cain hit a sharp line drive into Pelfrey's glove. Pelfrey couldn't handle the liner, scoring a run. The next batter, Eric Hosmer, hit another sharp liner, this one directly to Jose...

Royals tame Tigers behind Alex Gordon, Eric Hosmer's defense

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals don’t have many big innings. They’re just not that built that way offensively. On defense, however, the Royals can play with anyone. And on most nights, they can outplay anyone. Thursday’s series finale against Detroit was another prime example of that. The Royals had a big inning in the fourth but won 4-0 at Kauffman Stadium not on the strength of their offense but by the strength of their defense. More specifically, Alex Gordon and Eric Hosmer’s defense. read more

‘No man alive’ could hit these three Noah Syndergaard pitches

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Noah Syndergaard had worked carefully around Eric Hosmer, walked the Royals’ cleanup hitter on four pitches and now the bases were loaded with two outs. It was the sixth inning, Jerry Blevins was warming and if we have learned anything about these Royals the past few years, they own the late...

American League: 10 things to watch

ROYALS REPEAT: There hasn't been a team that's won consecutive World Series since the New York Yankees won three straight from 1998-2000. The Kansas City Royals are aiming to become the next. They lost Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist to free agency but re-signed two of their own in Gold Glove leftfielder Alex Gordon and starting pitcher Chris Young, while adding Ian Kennedy and Joakim Soria. Their lineup is one of the best in the majors; they do all the little things right and have one final chance to make a run before stars like Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain become free agents....
