Royals rookies rampage, rout rivals 8-3

Royals rookies rampage, rout rivals 8-3

Photo by Ed Zurga/ The young guys hit and the bullpen held up Kansas City’s offense came to life late and Chicago had no answer as the Royals cruised to an 8-3 victory. The first inning was one of the quickest innings you’ll ever see in a big league game. Kris Bubic struck out Josh Harrison on three pitches, then retired Luis Robert and Eloy Jiménez on groundouts, finishing the inning with eight pitches thrown. Johnny Cueto was even more efficient. MJ Melendez lined Cueto’s second pitch into right for a leadoff single, but Bobby Witt Jr. flew out on the first...

Game one hundred and twelve: Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals

Game one hundred and twelve: Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals

Photo by Ed Zurga/ It’s gonna be a WAR The Chicago Pale Hoes take on the Kansas City Rulers tonight in the third game of this four game set. The teams split yesterday’s doubleheader, and tonight’s winner will secure at least a series split. Kris Bubic takes the pill for Kansas City. He’s on a nice little roll, having gone at least six innings in his last four starts, with no more than three earned runs allowed in any of them. He has yet to face the White Sox this year, but made back-to-back starts against them last year and totaled 12 innings pitched with five...

Royals implode in eight-run eighth-inning for 11-5 loss to Yankees

Royals implode in eight-run eighth-inning for 11-5 loss to Yankees

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Salvy returns, but so do the bullpen implosions. The Yankees returned from a 26-minute rain delay to score eight runs in the eighth inning for an 11-5 win over the Royals on Friday. The Yankees jumped off to an early 1-0 lead in the first when Anthony Rizzo homered off Kris Bubic. Aaron Judge would make it 3-0 with his MLB-leading 40th home run of the year. But Bubic would pitch well otherwise, lasting six innings, his third consecutive start of at least 6+ innings. The lefty would allow just four hits and two walks, while striking out six,...

NYY vs. KC: Gerrit Cole vs. Kris Bubic

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Will the Yankees be able to manage more than one run after the pitching duel yesterday? After a relatively quiet game from the Yankees’ bats last night, will they be able to do some damage against the Kansas City Royals’ starting pitching? The Yankees are going to once again face a young and unproven pitcher. Perhaps fortunately for New York, Kris Bubic has a 5.53 ERA over 68.1 innings pitched. This compares quite favorably to last night’s starter, Brady Singer, who has a 3.51 ERA over 84.2 innings. Hopefully the Yankees will be able to...

What has led to Kris Bubic’s recent success?

What has led to Kris Bubic’s recent success?

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports Hint: it’s not a slider Kris Bubic entered the season as the #3 starter for the Royals, slotting in behind Zack Greinke and Brad Keller and ahead of Carlos Hernandez and Daniel Lynch. At the time, I felt there were better candidates for the rotation. This belief seemed justified early on as Bubic was shelled in his very first start of the season, giving up five runs and failing to complete the first inning. Through his first six appearances, which comprised five starts and one relief outing, he did not look like a major league pitcher:...

Royals Rumblings - July 25, 2022

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports A series win against a good team? Remarkable Kris Bubic put together one of his best starts of the season, and says he felt great about his breaking ball. Bubic’s curveball was the “separator” on Sunday, he said, throwing it 20 times and seeing good results with it. Roman Quinn swung through it twice for strike three, and the Rays averaged just an 83.9 mph exit velocity on the pitch. “Being able to throw it for a strike, throw it below the zone, throw it with conviction with two strikes,” Bubic said. “I think just throwing it a...

Kris Bubic, clutch bats break KC Royals out of cellar

For what it’s worth, and it’s certainly worth something within the context of this mess of a season, the KC Royals start today somewhere they haven’t been for a long time. Out of last place. Yes, for the first time since May 28, the Royals aren’t American League Central cellar-dwellers.

Peter Aiken-USA TODAY Sports A rubber match on a less-hotter day. The Royals may still be bad, but their lineups this weekend have featured the young guys and have been more entertaining to watch. Today, they’ll try to win their first series at home against the Rays since 2016 behind the left arm of Kris Bubic. First pitch is at 1:10.

Royals Rumblings - News for July 18, 2022 Kris Bubic gave the Royals a strong start, but it wasn’t enough on Sunday. “That’s one of the best we’ve seen from him,” Royals manager Mike Matheny said. “We give him a little bit more run support, he’s probably still going. It seemed liked he just kind of kept getting better. He mixed it up so well. … “I thought (catcher) Freddy (Fermin) did a fantastic job with the game plan, just keeping them off-balance. Man, I didn’t know which way they were going to go in certain...

Late home run sends Royals into break with 4-2 loss in Toronto

Late home run sends Royals into break with 4-2 loss in Toronto

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports The first half ends with a loss. Kris Bubic pitched well (the instant he gets away from Cal Eldred!), but a late home run off the Royals bullpen doomed Kansas City on Sunday afternoon. The Toronto Blue Jays took a 4-2 victory on Sunday afternoon, sending the Royals into the All Star break on a three-game losing streak. The Royals scored the first two runs of the game, as Edward Olivares hit an RBI single in the first to make it 1-0. In the next inning, it was Nick Pratto hitting his first career home run into right field for a 2-0 lead....
