  • Royals Ride Big First Inning to Win Fifth Straight Game, 7-2 over White Sox

    14 June 2014

    Dale Sveum strikes again. The Royals erupted for a five-run first inning to support Jeremy Guthrie en route to their fifth straight victory, a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. With the Detroit Tigers’ loss to Minnesota, Kansas City...

  • Break Out the Brooms, Royals Beat Tribe, 4-1 to Sweep Series

    11 June 2014

    With every pitch thrown from the golden arm of Yordano Ventura, I held my breath. With every out he made, I exhaled just a tiny bit. I am still very nervous that Yordano will go down with the dreaded Tommy John injury. The offense was quiet on both sides...

  • Royals Blast Three Home Runs, Cool Off Indians 9-5

    11 June 2014

    347 days. That’s how long it had been since Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas, once viewed as power-hitting prospect phenoms destined to clobber 30+ homers each season, homered in the same game. Both Hosmer and Moustakas, along with Alex Gordon, went deep...

  • Royals vs. White Sox Series Preview (6/13-6/15)

    12 June 2014

    Coming off a 5-2 homestand, the Royals (33-32) are over .500 for the first time since May 18. Kansas City finds themselves just two games behind the suddenly ice-cold Detroit Tigers in the A.L. Central, and they’re just a single game back of the second...

  • Indians at Royals: Series Preview

    10 June 2014

    The Royals will try and cool off the red-hot Indians as they cruise into town going 9-1 in their last 10 games. Kansas City is in the midst of a stretch where they play 21 games all against contending teams. Honestly, you could throw Seattle in there...

  • If You Give a Moose a Bat

    10 June 2014

    Due to tonight's rainout, I assume you are all extremely bored, as am I. I assume you are all familiar with the children's book, "If You Give a Moose a Muffin." Tonight's version will have a bit of a 'Royal spin" on it. Please enjoy. *Clears throat* If...

  • Plenty of Shirt Magic to go Around, Royals Take Game 3, 2-1 Over Yanks

    08 June 2014

    Ryan and his shirt were trying to go 10-0 today when James Shields pitches. Sadly, Ryan and his shirt had to work today. Luckily, Ryan was wearing his shirt under his uniform, and we still managed to escape with a win. The Yankees were getting some good...

  • Royals Take Game 2, 8-4 Over Yanks

    07 June 2014

    I was going to write something along the lines of "The Royals Upend Yanks to Take Game 2, 8-3." Since Michael Mariott is pretty much a AAAA pitcher, I was not able to do that. Danny Duffy was solid through 5.2 innings. It was the 6th inning that really...

  • Royals Can't Bat Gordon Nine Times, Lose 4-2 to Yankees

    07 June 2014

    I tried to come up with a witty hook to intro this article, or find a cool stat to intro this recap with. This game was so dull that I forgot I was on recap duty until the thought of what Sarah would do to me jolted me awake two hours after the game ended....

  • Royals Up-End Sox, 9-1 to Extend Win-Streak to Six

    14 June 2014

    Michael Mariot always ruins my titles. Coming into today, the Royals were 1-9 in day games this year. Trying to extend their win-streak, they sent out Danny Duffy to keep things going. In his career, Duffy is 1-0 with a 2.35 ERA. Danny Duffy is returning...

  • Lucky Seven: Streaking Royals Finish Sweep of White Sox 6-3

    15 June 2014

    In Sunday afternoon’s series finale with the White Sox, the Royals had three RISP opportunities. Chicago had 14. With the way the streaking Royals are playing right now, it didn’t matter. Kansas City hit two more home runs and swept away the White Sox...

  • KC vs DET: Series Preview

    16 June 2014

    As we cruise into Detroit riding a 7-game winning streak, things are about to get a lot tougher for Kansas City. The Royals need to win at least two of these four games just to stay 1.5 games back of the Tigers for first place. As hot as they are, this...

  • Royals Survive Crazy 9th to Beat Tigers, 11-8

    16 June 2014

    While everybody else in the U.S seemed to be watching the World Cup, Kansas Citians gathered everywhere to watch their Royals try and tame the Detroit Tigers. For those of you that did not watch, sit back, and I will fill you in. Oh, well... The Royaling...

  • Fine Nine: Royals Clobber Tigers Again to Claim First Place

    18 June 2014

    From May 2-4, the Detroit Tigers obliterated the Kansas City Royals in a three-game set at Kauffman Stadium. The Tigers outscored the Royals 26-8 in that series. None of the contests were really close. The Royals offense looked lifeless. The pitching...

  • How it Feels to Wake up in First Place

    18 June 2014

    If you didn't know, the Kansas City Royals now sit atop the AL Central after nabbing first place from the Detroit Tiggers, (I meant Tigers, but did I really?) Yesterday, I wrote an article for another website that I write for, and you can all check that...

  • Hanging Ten: Royals Stretch Winning Streak to Longest in 20 Years

    18 June 2014

    They’re winning baseball games. They’re making history. They’re also making quite a menace that other teams will have to deal with as the summer progresses. t’s all just going well in Kansas City right now. The Royals downed the Tigers 2-1 on Wednesday...

  • Royals end Winning Streak, Lose 2-1 to Detroit

    19 June 2014

    It was the news that Alex Gordon was a late scratch from the lineup that sent the fans of Kansas City into panic mode. It was not until later in the first inning when the fans were nothing short of an anxiety attack that analyst Steve Physioc announced...

  • Seattle vs Kansas City: Series Preview

    19 June 2014

    The 'Red-hot Royals' are coming home to face the 'Mediocre Mariners' for a three game set, and expectations are high for this first place Kansas City team. Game one: James Shields ( 8-3, 3.50) vs. Hisashi Iwakuma ( 5-3, 2.59 ERA) The Royals will look...

  • Bye Bye First, Royals Drop Game One, 7-5 to Mariners

    21 June 2014

    Boo Cano. Okay, I started this off the right way. It’s no secret that James Shields is awful when it comes to first innings. Relatively speaking, it was a good inning for Shields considering he only gave up one earned run. It was the other innings that...

  • Royals Skid Reaches Four, Drop Game 2-1 to Mariners

    22 June 2014

    Another quality start from a Royals starting pitcher, but the Kansas City offense couldn’t hold up. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Yordano Ventura was nails for 7.0 complete innings only allowing two earned runs. Ventura had six strikeouts, and...

  • Los Angeles Dodgers at Kansas City Royals: Series Preview

    23 June 2014

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are catching the Kansas City Royals at just the right time. Having just won 10-straight, the Royals have regressed, and are now on a streak of a different kind. Kansas City will look to get back on track with this upcoming series...

  • Welcome Back, Zack: Royals Beat Dodgers 5-3

    24 June 2014

    Welcome back, Zack! The Royals roughed up their former teammate for five earned runs in just 5.2 innings. The fans of Kansas City certainly did not give Zack Greinke a warm welcome. The same can be said for the guys we traded for him. Lorenzo Cain had...

  • Royals Offense Absent, Fall to Dodgers 2-0

    25 June 2014

    Tonight's broadcast on Fox Sports Kansas City started off with some tears from both Ryan Lefebvre and Rex Hudler, but for good reasons. US Air Force Major, Robert Sides came home from a year long deployment, and surprised his son, Austin, who threw out...

  • Balks, HBP's, and Line-Out Double Plays: Dodgers Clip Royals 5-4

    26 June 2014

    Lorenzo Cain stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth. With the Royals trailing 5-4, the tying run was in scoring position, and a lousy single against troubled Dodger reliever Brian Wilson would surely tie the game. “Hopefully he can line one...

  • Infante's Slam and Dominant Bullpen Propel Royals past Angels 8-6

    28 June 2014

    Back off the ledge, Royals fans. At least for one night. Omar Infante hit his first career grand slam, Ned Yost pulled his starter before it was too late, and the Royals’ bullpen dominated in an 8-6 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night. In...
