White Sox will give Chris Sale only one more start

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Seeing little to gain and no reason to crack the whip on ace Chris Sale as he approaches the finish line, the White Sox are giving their prized left-hander only one more start — Wednesday afternoon against the Tigers and Justin Verlander in Detroit. Sale could’ve started on five days of rest Tuesday and again Sunday on four days against the Royals in the season finale at U.S. Cellular Field. Sale, who missed five weeks early in the...

Aoki, Guthrie, Royals avoid sweep, beat Tigers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Each win moves the Royals one step closer to the end of their long playoff drought, and Sunday was a big one. Nori Aoki hit a two-run triple, and Kansas City beat the Detroit Tigers 5-2 to avoid a sweep in the weekend series between the AL Central’s top teams. “Today’s game shows that we’re not going away,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They have that feeling. They had that feeling this morning that they knew this was going to be a big game. They had a lot of confidence in themselves when they hit the field.” read more

Resumption of suspended game weird feeling for KC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Mike Moustakas tried to define his role in the suspended game the Kansas City Royals will complete Monday, then had trouble simplifying matters. “It’s like I’m leading off the game hitting first … except we’re down two and we’ve got to find a way to win,’’ the third baseman said after Kansas City tripped Detroit 5-2 to take the last game of the final regular-season series played in Kauffman Stadium. read more

Kevin Haskin: Royals far from flawless, but regain spirit

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Again, the beginning Sunday was precarious for the Kansas City Royals. No failure to tag up upon review, but an inability to cross home plate on enough opportunities. The Royals left five runners in scoring position the first four innings. Their franchise player, Alex Gordon, went 0 for 3 during that segment. They asked their leadoff man, Alcides Escobar, to sacrifice bunt after ripping hits on six of his previous seven at-bats. Mike Moustakas flat dropped a throw into the infield to let a run score. read more

MLB juggling growth aspirations abroad, 'disturbing' audience trends at home

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The most populous country on Earth has produced exactly one Major League Baseball player, and none in the past 100 years. Kansas City Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie spent part of his last offseason halfway across the world trying to change that firsthand. Chinese-born first baseman Henry Kingman made his major league debut for the New York Yankees on July 1, 1914, and the country’s foray into professional baseball began. Just 51 days and zero base hits later, China’s MLB story ended, and the book has remained closed ever since. read more

Tigers pound Royals 10-1 to pad AL Central lead

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ian Kinsler hit a two-run homer, everyone in the Detroit starting lineup had a hit by the fourth inning and the Tigers pounded Jason Vargas and the second-place Kansas City Royals, 10-1, on Friday night to add another game to their AL Central lead. Justin Verlander (14-12) had all the support he needed by the end of the first inning, when the Tigers had shelled Vargas (11-10) for three runs on five hits.

Kevin Haskin: Tigers silence Royals, crowd in first game of series

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The best problem the Kansas City Royals have was announced at mid-day Friday. Anyone who still needed tickets for the final home series of the year was going to have to stand. Mosey up next to a trash can, set your beer and hot dog down, and yell as loud as anyone fortunate enough to have a seat. No problem, really for any franchise. Just make sure the overflow crowds get parked, accommodated, replenished and hydrated on the best weekend of baseball for Kansas City in, oh … you don’t need to be reminded again of that 29-year itch thing. read more

Royals looking to catch Tigers in crucial final home series

The Royals and Tigers’ battle for the top spot in the AL Central will continue at 7:10 p.m. Friday at Kauffman Stadium.

Better off Ned: KC manager has Royals on brink of postseason

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Behind a pair of dark sunglasses, Ned Yost takes a seat in the Royals dugout. It’s one of his favorite places, though it sometimes has its drawbacks. Right now is one of them. Yost is meeting with the local media prior to Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox at Kauffman Stadium. It’s not exactly one of Yost’s favorite things to do, but it comes with being a big league manager. read more

Adam Eaton has four hits in Sox’ 7-5 victory against Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Adam Eaton wants to be the complete package as a leadoff man, and he knows there is work to be done. While Eaton has given the White Sox plenty of offense at the top of the order — he had four hits,  including a double and a triple, and scored their first two runs in a 7-5 victory Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals — his stolen-base total stands at 14. Eaton has been thrown out nine times and admitted his confidence is pretty much shot...
