KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Eric Hosmer got his first hit seven hours after the first pitch. It was the biggest one of the night. Hosmer’s single in the 11th inning drove in Cheslor Cuthbert with the winning run to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins early Saturday morning. The Royals have won six straight, matching a season high, and got their eighth walk-off victory. There was a 3-hour, 3-minute rain delay in the top of the fifth, plus a 12-minute delay when some of the lights went out in the bottom of the sixth. read more

Verlander allowed four hits, three of which were home runs, in a 6-1 loss to Kansas City. DETROIT -- On paper, the four hits allowed by Justin Verlander appeared par for the course. Only one problem: three of them left the yard. Verlander surrendered three home runs and the Detroit Tigers struggled with the bats for a second straight night, losing 6-1 to the Kansas City Royals Tuesday at Comerica Park. Alex Gordon, Raul Mondesi and Eric Hosmer each homered off Verlander for the Royals, who totaled four long balls and have won the first two games of the series...

So the pitching...it's bad right now, guys. The Twins led 5-0 in a game that didn't count on Wednesday once the rain set in. Since then, they've been April/May 2016 bad. Which is bad. Kyle Gibson was mediocre, the bullpen wasn't much better, and the defending champion Kansas City Royals cruised to a 7-3 victory. It wasn't entire Gibby's fault, as the Royals took an early lead thanks to a Trevor Plouffe throwing error extending the first, allowing Eric Hosmer's RBI double to start the scoring. With the Royals up 2-0, the Twins tried to make it interesting, as the two hottest hitters on the...
