Dillon Gee, Royals miss chance to sweep Twins in 7-5 loss

MINNEAPOLIS — The Kansas City Royals had the opportunity to turn a solid road trip into an excellent six-game stretch. Dillon Gee didn’t hold up his end of the responsibility. Miguel Sano hit the go-ahead, two-run home run in the fifth inning after Minnesota lost an early lead, and the Twins staved off another series sweep Wednesday by beating the Royals 7-5. Eduardo Nunez and Brian Dozier each homered, too, the first two batters to face Gee (1-2) and just the fifth pair in Twins history to go deep in their first two plate appearances of the game. read more

Kansas City Royals interested in Jay Bruce

Per reports, the Royals are the 73rd team to show interest in trading for Bruce. It would be impossible for the calendar to turn to trade season without Jay Bruce's name popping up immediately.  With the Cincinnati Reds in obvious rebuild mode and Bruce rapidly approaching the end of his contract, it's all but certain that we'll see the idea of trading the veteran RF bounced around both in the Cincinnati media and anywhere a sweet swinging lefty bat would improve a lineup. The first such instance leaked on Sunday, when Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe mentioned that the Kansas City Royals...

Jarrod Dyson lifts Royals to second straight win over Red Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Maybe the Boston Red Sox are just what the Kansas City Royals needed to jumpstart their season. Jarrod Dyson is certainly hoping so. Dyson entered Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox locked in slump and his playing time diminished. But Dyson started the opener, scored the winning run and threw out a runner on the bases in the Royals’ 3-2 win at Kauffman Stadium. Dyson scored the game-winner on Lornezo Cain’s fly ball in the sixth, but it was his throw in the eighth inning that saved the game for the Royals. read more
