Historically bad: Jeremy Guthrie allows 11 runs, 4 homers as Royals lose 14-1 to Yankees

NEW YORK — Brett Gardner, Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered during an eight-run first inning and the New York Yankees quickly erased the memory of a lost weekend, romping past the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals 14-1 Monday to end a six-game skid.

The Astros, the Royals and different ways to win

During a 20-batter stretch in Sunday’s victory at Detroit, every hitter for the Houston Astros either reached base or struck out. Business as usual for the surprising leaders of the AL West. The Astros beat the Tigers 10-8 in that game, striking out 15 times but also hitting a pair of home runs and rallying from a four-run deficit in the sixth inning. Houston now leads its division by 61/2 games and has the second-best record in the American League — but to say the Astros have an unusual offense would be an understatement. read more

Cards deck Royals in series finale

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Sunday’s series finale between Kansas City and St. Louis had all the makings of a pitcher’s duel. And it was that to a certain extent. But a pair of two-run innings doomed Yordano Ventura and the Royals in a 6-1 loss to Michael Wacha and the Cardinals at Kauffman Stadium. The crushing blow against Ventura came on a two-run home run by Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter in the sixth inning, making the score 4-1, and with Wacha on the mound essentially putting the game out of reach for the Royals. read more

Royals' Mike Moustakas returns to lineup

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mike Moustakas wasn’t out for long. After leaving Saturday’s game with a bruised left clavicle, the Kansas City third baseman was back in the lineup and hitting second in Sunday’s series finale against St. Louis at Kauffman Stadium. “It’s a little sore, but it’s not that bad,” Moustakas said. The Royals third baseman was injured in the second inning Saturday when he was hit in the shoulder/neck on a ground ball by Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina. Moustakas remained in the game until the fifth before he was taken out. read more

Gordon, Volquez lead Royals over Cards in rain-shortened game

Chris Young delivering goods for Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — At 6-foot-8 and 255 pounds, Chris Young can be an imposing figure. But when his fastball comes in at 88-90 mph, opposing hitters’ eyes widen with belief that it is a very hitable pitch. That thought, though, is a ruse as there’s a reason the Kansas City right-hander has been nearly unhittable this year. read more
