Long-forgotten KC Packers will take center stage at Wrigley Field

A three-year footnote in the history of professional baseball in Kansas City, the Kansas City Packers were one of the first two teams to play at the stadium now known as Wrigley Field. On Wednesday, the Arizona Diamondbacks will pay homage to the Packers by donner their uniforms for Wrigley's centennial game against the Cubs.

Royals' Moore believes hitting will come around

Through 18 games, the Royals offense is one of the worst in baseball. They rank 26th in runs and have hit six home runs. The power outage is the reason behind the team's 9-9 start, general manager Dayton Moore believes. But it also sustains his belief in his team's talent as the pitching and defense has kept the Royals afloat while the offense works to produce more.

Indians 4, Royals 3: Zach McAllister improves to 3-0

Indians 4, Royals 3: Zach McAllister improves to 3-0

The Indians on the night of April 21 had one more run, five more hits and three more errors than the Kansas City Royals. The first two canceled out the third, and the Tribe came away with a 4-3 victory. The Indians have won two games in a row for the first time since April 8 and 9. Think baby steps. Zach McAllister pitched into the seventh inning to improve his record to 3-0, and the bullpen was bullish once again, pitching three hitless, scoreless and walk-less innings to preserve the lead.

The slider that changed the game

The slider that changed the game came in the sixth inning. Let's set the scene: the Indians had taken a two-run lead on a fourth inning home run by Michael Brantley. Coming into the game Brantley had hit .211 off Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie and had grounded out in his first at-bat. With a runner on second base Guthrie fell behind Brantley 2-1; a fastball count. Instead of throwing a fastball, Guthrie threw a changeup. But the changeup was elevated in the zone and then elevated into the right field seats--Indians up 2-0. The Royals took the lead right back in the top of the fifth,...
