Royals notebook: Ned Yost says Kendrys Morales not in a slump

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — To hear Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost tell it, there is a big difference between a player being in a slump and simply not getting hits. According to Yost, Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales fits into that latter category. “When you’re in a slump, you’re not seeing the ball very well,” Yost said before Wednesday’s series finale against Washington at Kauffman Stadium. “And you’re not hitting the ball hard.” Morales, of course, is putting together solid and sometimes loud contact, but there’s just one problem. He’s had little to show for...

Royals offense goes cold in loss to Nationals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Royals offense awoke for a spell Sunday, but it went into a pretty good slumber once again Monday night. Facing Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez, the Royals mustered just five hits and lost 2-0 at Kauffman Stadium. Though Gonzalez kept the KC bats quiet for the most part, there were a couple loud cracks that seemed to give hope — even if just for an instant — that the offense might snap out of it sometime soon. But that didn’t happen. read more

Nationals have Royals' respect

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There are some who believe the Washington Nationals are the biggest threat to dethrone the Kansas City Royals as World Series champs. Though the playoffs are still five months away, the Royals know they will likely have their hands full during the short three-game series, which could be a possible World Series preview. “They’re a good team, a very good team,” Royals reliever Danny Duffy said prior to Monday’s series opener at Kauffman Stadium. “It’s an opponent we’re really excited to face. It’s going to be a fun series.” read more

Royals snap five-game losing streak with win against Mariners

SEATTLE — Ian Kennedy felt like he only had one pitch working for him against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. He was still able to take a shutout into the sixth inning, and get a big boost from his bullpen when he finally ran into trouble. Kennedy had a three-run lead when he loaded the bases in the sixth inning on two singles and a walk. Reliever Danny Duffy came on to bail out the Royals, who went on to win 4-1 to end a five-game losing streak. read more

National Treasure: Treinen overcomes various hurdles to gain big-league spot

The first high school baseball game Blake Treinen started on the mound could have signaled his future. Maybe it did, considering Treinen is in his third season pitching for the Washington Nationals. The freshman debut Treinen threw for Osage City lasted 6-plus innings. He allowed no hits. Walks, hit batsmen and errors, however, contributed to four runs (one earned) before he was eventually removed from a 5-2 loss to Valley Falls. read more

Kevin Haskin: Osage City's Treinen recalls big-league beginnings

Relievers do not need to examine starting matchups to a great extent. Coming out of the bullpen now for the Washington Nationals, the identity of the opposing starter is not a huge consideration for Blake Treinen. However, the right-hander appreciates the role provided by those in the rotation, and still enjoys citing details of his first start as a big-leaguer. It came in Washington, on May 6, 2014, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and their ace, Clayton Kershaw. Vivid remembrances remain “clear as day’’ to Treinen, and not just from his performance on the mound. read more

Angels sweep Royals with 3 homers in 4-2 win

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels lost closer Huston Street because of a pregame injury, and that put a damper on their three-game sweep of the defending World Series champions. Street strained his left oblique muscle playing catch and could be headed for the disabled list, so setup man Joe Smith had to close out the Angels’ 4-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals — a win fueled by Mike Trout’s tying two-run homer and solo shots by Yunel Escobar and Andrelton Simmons. read more
