White Sox 6, Royals 3: Reynaldo Lopez’s debut a success

White Sox 6, Royals 3: Reynaldo Lopez’s debut a success

Starter gets no-decision, but Sox sink Danny Duffy in the seventh Reynaldo Lopez made his long-awaited 2017 debut tonight, and he did not disappoint. He didn’t get the victory, either, but his strong six innings put the Sox in position to win their fourth straight game. They also handed the Royals their fourth straight loss, knocking them below .500. Mike Moustakas aside, Lopez pitched well. That said, Moustakas touched him up for two solo shots — the first on a rolling curve, and the second on a hanging changeup. The latter tied the game at 2 in the sixth inning, but Lopez could still...

Considering Mike Moustakas

Considering Mike Moustakas

Could the Royals’ third baseman of the present present the Cardinals with an opportunity in the future? Seeing as how the Cardinals are currently embroiled in the 2017 edition of the I-70 series, we’re getting a chance to see firsthand what the Kansas City Royals of this year look like. I don’t know about you, but in spite of the fact the Royals are the nearest team to me after the Cardinals geographically (I think; don’t call me on an exact distance from St. Louis to KC vs Chicago, though I know Chicago is a slower trip), I very rarely pay attention to what they’re doing. Sure,...

First Place In Red Sox Rearview, Fall Into Second, 4-2

(AP Photo)Suddenly, the Red Sox 'juggernaut' to the 2017 playoffs could turn into a treadmill to oblivion. Your second-place Carmine Hose fell again—this time to the streaking Royals, 4-2. Last-minute starter Rick Porcello coughed up two home runs—one a 3-run shot to former Boston trade target Mike Moustakas, and that was all she wrote. Rookie Rafael Devers went 1-4 with a double and newcomer Eduardo Nunez went 2-3—but it was all for naught. The Evil Ones again beat up on the fading Rays and therefore: Hello, second place!

Andrew Romine's No. 1 rule as pitcher: Don't hurt anybody (including himself)

Andrew Romine's No. 1 rule as pitcher: Don't hurt anybody (including himself)

Romine got up to 85 mph, which isnt bad considering he didnt get much time to warm-up and wasnt throwing as hard as he could. DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers super-utility player Andrew Romine made his third career appearance as a pitcher on Wednesday night in the waning moments of the Kansas City Royals' 16-2 loss. He entered the game after reliever Bruce Rondon was ejected for throwing at Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas. Ironically, Romine's primary goal was to avoid hitting anyone.  That's why his heart jumped when he grazed Royals backup catcher Drew Butera....
