KC ace James Shields struggles as Twins hammer Royals 7-1

Starter James Shields surrendered seven runs in the first two inning as the Royals lost to the Twins 7-1 on Saturday in Minneapolis. In the last three seasons, Shields allowed seven runs in a game on six separate occasions. On Saturday, six of the runs were unearned. He is partly to blame for that, as is third baseman Mike Moustakas.

Ned Yost gives Mike Moustakas, hitless in 15 at-bats, the day off

The Royals' manager hinted that the mental break would be worthwhile for Moustakas. The team does not want his early season slump to snowball. "He's pressing a little bit," Yost said. "But not nearly as much as he did last year. He's going to be OK. And that's just signs of maturity."

Kevin Haskin: Some revelations occur as Royals claim home opener

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Some questions nagging at every Kansas City Royals fan were answered Friday in the club’s home opener at Kauffman Stadium. For the record: ■ Mike Moustakas keeps his zipper closed in the new open-barn door stance he has used during an 0-for-12 slump to begin the season. ■ All-Star pitchers do not always oppose the Royals. When they don’t, the club is capable of banging out as many hits (13) as it managed in two losses against Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer at Detroit. read more

Moustakas, Duffy try new positions in 3-2 loss to Angels

A pair of Royals tried their hands at new positions in Thursday afternoon's 3-2 loss to the Angels. Mike Moustakas, the team's starting third baseman, played sixinnings at second base. And Danny Duffy made his first relief appearance as he auditions for a bullpen role.

Mike Moustakas and the fine art of infield defense

If memory serves--and it often doesn't--it was the top of the ninth, the bases were loaded, there were two outs, the Royals were up by one run and Alex Rodriguez was at the plate. (To be honest I thought it was Derek Jeter, but Mike Moustakas says it was A-Rod, so we'll go with Mike's version.) Rodriguez hit a weak grounder to third; if Moustakas could throw out A-Rod, game over--the Royals would win. Fail to make the play and the runner on third would cross the plate--the score would be tied.

Mike Moustakas stomped across the clubhouse toward his locker. In a nearby corner stood Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer. "I've got to go take groundballs at second," Moustakas said. "For real?" Hosmer asked.
