Royals take 7-2 lead, Stickland barks at Perez

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Kauffman Stadium The Royals busted loose for five runs in the sixth, an inning that started with a little bloop single by Lorenzo Cain off Jake Peavy and included a two-run double by Salvador Perez – and then a two-run homer by Omar Infante off Hunter Strickland. Strickland, the rookie reliever, started barking at Perez, the American League’s starting catcher in the All-Star Game, when Perez and Infante crossed the plate. That brought many of the Royals onto the field, and when Strickland was lifted for Jeremy Affeldt, one of the umpires even...

Tim Flannery admits he might have to give Buster Posey the stop sign

Out by PlentyRoyals catcher Salvador Perez throws out Buster Posey trying to score from first base in the first inning of Game 1. Third-base coach Tim Flannery, proud of his aggressive approach sending runners home, said Wednesday he might have to treat Buster Posey more conservatively after the catcher was thrown out at home for the third time in the postseason in Game 1. “I’m probably going to have to hold him,” Flannery said. At the same time, he said, “If people want me to hold everybody, we have to keep hitting. It works both ways. They held a guy at third with nobody out and he...

Lincecum missed World Series introductions while vomiting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum missed the pregame introductions before the World Series opener because he was vomiting. The two-time Cy Young Award winner did not line up with his teammates on the third-base side of the field at Kauffman Stadium before the Giants’ 7-1 win Tuesday night. “My trainer, Dave Groeschner, he said he got sick about a half hour before the game and he was throwing up,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday. “He rebounded very well. He was OK to pitch.” Bochy wasn’t sure whether the issue was caused by food. read more
