Royals 1 @ Indians 0.

Scoreless until the 7th where Lucas Duda homered on the first pitch from Trevor Bauer in the 7th to put the Royals up 1-0, and that score would hold up. Bauer (0-1) allowed 1 run on 3 hits (1 homer) with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Ian Kennedy (1-0) was outstanding as well pitching 6 scoreless innings allowing only 4 hits, 0 walks, and 8 strikeouts. Blaine Boyer (1st hold) and Justin Grimm (3rd hold) combined for 2 hits, 1 walk, and 1 strike out in 2 innings while Kelvin Herrera (2nd save) had a strikeout in a 1-2-3 9th. Royals may not win every game, but the games they do win, they win by scores of 1-0. They have 2 wins on the year and both wins are by the same 1-0 score. Rubber match of the series is on Sunday. Jason Hammel (0-1, 9.00) starts for the Royals and will be opposed by Mike Clevinger (1-0, 0.00). First pitch scheduled for 1:10.

Default 2-5

Royals 1 @ Indians 3.

John Jay 2 out triple in the 5th scored Cam Gallagher and gave the Royals a 1-0 lead. Bradley Zimmer would score on a Jose Ramirez ground out in the 8th to knot it at 1, which set the stage for Yan Gomes to walk off the Royals with a 2 run homer to left-center for the 3-1 win. Horrible situational hitting for the Royals as they outhit the Indians 10-4, but they went 1-5 with runners in scoring position (the only hit got a runner thrown out at the plate though), hit into 2 double plays, had a runner caught stealing, had a runner picked off, and as mentioned above had a runner thrown out at home. Jason Hammel was in line for the win pitching 6 shutout innings allowing 3 hits, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts, Tim Hill (1st hold) allowed 1 run (unearned) on a walk in 1+ inning, Justin Grimm (1st blown save) pitched 1 hitless inning but allowedthe tying run to score on a groundout, and Brandon Maurer (0-2) allowed 2 runs on 1 hit (1 homer) with a walk and a strike out. Indians stay at home and will welcome in the Tigers, coming off a 3 game sweep against the White Sox for a 4 game series beginning Monday night. Royals are back in action at the K Monday night as they welcome in the Mariners for 3 games beginning on Monday night. Marco Gonzales (1-0, 4.26) starts for Seattle and he’ll be opposed by Jake Junis (1-0, 0.00) of the Royals. Game time slated for 8:15.

Mariners 0 @ Royals 10.

John Jay & Whit Merrifield had back-to-back singles to open the first, Mike Moustakas followed with a 2 RBI double, and then would score on Jorge Soler’s singe, and the Royals would add a 4th run in the 3rd when Soler scored on an Alcides Escobar ground out. Royals would blow it open in the 4th: Merrifield started the inning with a single, and after Moustakas flied out Cheslor Cuthbert and Soler would follow with walks to load the bases. Paulo Orlando would drive in Merrifield with an RBI force out, Cam Gallagher had a double with scored 1, Escobar had an RBI single, and then Drew Butera would drive in the final 2 runs of the inning with an RBI double to make it 9-0, and then Moustakas would finish the scoring in the 8th with a solo home run to make it 10-0. That would be more than enough for Jake Junis who was unhittable through 6.1 but issued 2 walks and had 3 hit batters. Marco Gonzalez (1-1) allowed 4 runs on 8 hits with 1 walk and 4 stikeouts. Junis (2-0) finished with 1 hit allowed and 3 strikeouts. Game 2 of the series is Tuesday: Erik Skoglund (1-2, 9.50 in ’17) makes his first start of 2018 and will be opposed by Felix Hernandez (1-1 with an unking-like 7.71 ERA). Game time scheduled for 8:15.

Mariners 8 @ Royals 3.

Dee Gordan started the game getting hit by a pitch, stole second & third and scored on Mitch Haniger’s single to give the M’s a quick 1-0. Jean Segura would have a 2 RBI triple in the 2nd and would score on Robinson Cano’s double. Whit Merrifield singled to start the 4th and Moose homered to cut the Mariners lead in the half at 4-2. Guillermo Heredia had a 1 out solo home run in the 5th to make it 5-2, and the Mariners basically put it on ice with a 3 run 6th inning the first run scoring on a Haniger sac fly and then Kyle Seager doubled home the final 2 RBI’s. Royals would get a run back in the 6th when John Jay would start the inning with a double and following a Merrifield ground out Jay would score on a Moustakas single. Erik Skoglund (0-1) allowed 5 runs on 6 hits (1 homer) with 2 walks (3 hit batters) and 1 strike out in 4.2. Felix Hernandez (2-1) allowed 3 runs on 6 hits (1 homer) with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. The final game of the series takes place on Wednesday. James Paxton (0-1, 7.45) takes on Danny Duffy (0-2, 7.45) with a scheduled start time of 2:15 for the afternoon matinee.

Brandon Mauer sent down to Omaha.

When they traded Matt Strahm for Mauer, I had a really bad feeling about it. So far that feeling is proving accurate.

Wednesday: Mariners 4 @ Royals 2.

Dee Gordon single, Robby Cano walk, and Mitch Haniger walk would load the bases, Kyle Seager had a sac fly to bring in Gordon, and with Guillermo Heredia batting Danny Duffy unleashed a wild pitch to bring in a second run. Paulo Orlando had a 2 out, 2 run double in the 4th to tie the game at 2. Mariners had the tiebreaking-2 run homer in the 8th by Seager for the final 4-2 margin. James Paxton allowed 2 runs on 6 hits with 1 walk and 10 strikeouts in 6 innings, Nick Vincent (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning, Juan Nicasio (5th hold), had a walk, hit and strikeout in 1 inning and Edwin Diaz (4th save) had a 1-2-3 9th inning with a strikeout. Mariners have Thursday off and head home to start a 3 game series with the A’s on Friday. Royals start 4 game home series vs. Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani and the Angels on Thursday. Nick Tropeono (3-2, 3.56 in 2016) who hasn’t pitched in a major league game in almost 21 months (July 18, 2016) because of tommy john surgery starts for the Angels while the Royals will give the ball to Ian Kennedy (1-0, 0.75), game time scheduled for 8:15.

Thursday: Angels 7 @ Royals 1.

Angels had a leadoff homer by Ian Kinsler for a quick 1-0 lead. Game was that same 1-0 score to the 7th when the Angels put it away. Kole Calhoun had a 2 out, 2 run single, and 2 batters later with the bases loaded Ohtani had his first career triple to put the Angels up 6-0. Trout would have the 7th and final run for the Angels with a solo homer in the 8th, and Lucas Duda would finish the scoring with the Royals lone run with an RBI single in the bottom half. Tropeano (6-2) allowed 6 hits, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts in 6.2 scoreless. Kennedy (1-1) didn’t pitch bad he allowed 1 run on 7 hits (1 homer) with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts in 6 innings. 4 game weekend home stand continues through Sunday. Andrew Heaney (1-2, 7.06 in 17) who’s made only 6 starts since the end of the 2015 season because of tommy john surgery as well starts for the Angels while the Royals hand the ball to a World Series Champ in Jason Hammel (0-1, 4.09). Game time scheduled for 8:15.

The entire bullpen for this team stinks! I laughed at Kennedy after he had that bad first inning against the White Sox the first game of the year where he had 2 walks and since then he's been terrific. He allowed 1 run and gets credited with the loss because the bullpen $#!ts the bed. They should skip Omaha for this bum Mauer and just give him a 1 way ticket back to San Diego!

Angels 5 @ Royals 4.

Albert Pujols had a 2 run homer in the 3rd for a 2-0 Angels lead, and Royals would get 1 back in the bottom half on a Whit Merrifield single. Royals would tie the game in the 4th on a Paulo Orlando single following base hits by Jorge Soler and Lucas Duda, and 2 batters later Cam Gallagher would give the Royals the lead with a 2 run single. Albert Pujols got the Angels back to within 1 in the 7th on a single, and tied it in the 8th with Zack Cozart, and Shohei Ohtani starting the inning with singles, Andrellton Simmons had a sac bunt which moved the runners up to second & 3rd, and Luis Valbuena tied the game at 4 on a base hit to center, and Ian Kinsler followed with the game-winning sac fly. With 2 outs, Whit Merrifield drew a walk and ended the game getting thrown out trying to steal second…..with Moose at the plate. Can we say #Yosted?? Andrew Heaney allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 7 hits with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts in 5 innings, Blake Wood (1-0) had a 1-2-3 scoreless inning, Cam Bedrosian (1st hold) allowed 1 hit in a scoreless inning and Keynan Middleton (3rd save) had a walk and hit allowed in a scoreless 9th. Jason Hammel allowed 2 runs on 8 hits (1 homer) with 0 walks and 4 strike outs in 5.1. Tim Hill (2nd hold) and Brad Keller (1st hold) allowed 1 run on 2 hits with a walk and 3 strikeouts. Justin Grimm (0-2, 2nd blown save) allowed 2 runs on 3 hits with a strikeout in an inning. Garrett Richards (1-0, 4.20) starts for the Angels against Jake Junis (2-0, 0.00) on Saturday with first pitch scheduled for 7:15.

Saturday: Angels 5 @ Royals 3.
Luis Valbuena went 2-4 with 2 runs scored, an RBI and a home run while Justin Upton went 2-5 with a home run, RBI and run scored and Mike Trout had 2 RBI's and a run scored. No Royal had more then 1 hit, but Moose had a home run.

Jake Junis (2-1) allowed 4 runs on 7 hits (3 home runs) with 1 walk and 7 strikeouts in 4.2.

Sunday: Angels 0 @ Royals 0 (postponed).
Game postponed, will be made on Monday, June 25. Everyone else in the Central was postponed on Sunday as well. Indians/Jays from Cleveland was postponed Saturday & Sunday to a double header Thursday, May 3. Tigers/Yankees from Detroit playing a scheduled double header after Saturday’s postponement will now play a double header Monday, June 4. White Sox/Twins from Minneapolis played Thursday and then had games Friday, Saturday & Sunday postponed. One of the games will be played as part of a double header on June 5, the second game will be made up on a single game on Monday, August 20, and the 3rd postponement will be made up as part of a double header on Friday, September 28. That leaves the Central with the Twins 7-4 in first a half game up on the Indians at 8-6 with the Chi Sox 4-8 3.5 back, Tigers 4-9 4 back and the Royals 3-10 at 5 back. Royals have a 3 game series in Toronto on Monday (with the Monday game in jeopardy after ice falling from the CN Tower damaged the Rogers Centre roof). If they do play, Erik Skoglund (0-1, 9.64) starts for the Royals against Jaime Garcia (1-0, 3.18) with first pitch scheduled for 7:07.

Royals 0 @ Jays 0.

Due to falling ice from the CN Tower damaging the roof of the Rogers Centre, the Monday game was postponed to a double header on Tuesday beginning at 3:07. The scheduled starters from Monday’s game will start game 2, while J.A. Happ (2-1, 3.94) starts for the Jays against Danny Duffy (0-2, 5.40) in game 2 scheduled for 7:07 or about 30 minutes after game 1 ends. In other Central action from Monday the White Sox lose to Oakland 1-8. The A’s/Sox series continues on Tuesday while the other 3 Central teams resume play as the Tigers host the Orioles and the Twins & Indians play each other in Puerto Rico. Twins are 7-4 still a half game in front of the 8-6 Indians, White Sox & Tigers tied for 3rd at 4-9 4 back and KC is 5 back at 3-10.

0-12 when the opponent scores at least 1 run, 3-0 when the opponent gets held scoreless. Now have more games that have been postponed (4) than wins (3) this year which is also pretty good I think

3 years ago this was the best bullpen in baseball that was so good that teams emulated them in future years on how to build a pitching staff, and now it's like pouring gasoline on a forest fire. The entire bullpen should get DFA'd! And it's obvious this team is going nowhere anywhere other then 4th or 5th in the Central, so why continue to trot out retreads like Blaine Boyer every game who oh by the way I totally called would blow the first game open about 5 minutes before it actually happened: https://twitter.com/maxl100/status/986349449059414018
Sure Boyer saved a bus driver, but this year he is a journeyman crap relief pitcher. What's the point of keeping him on a team that will be lucky to win 70 games when they can shuttle people from Omaha (AAA) and Northwest Arkansas (AA) to see if they have any kids that look like they have major league potential. What's the point of keeping a closer on a 70 win team?? Granted Herrera will probably get something at the deadline but at this rate Boyer won't even get a stale month old Dodger dog with a moldy bun from the Dodgers, and with Herrera the earlier you trade him the more likely the better pieces you have coming back. Even though he is a free agent this year if he got traded to a contending team like the Nationals or something, it'll be like acquiring him in the offseason but him starting the year on the DL, so that will have to be something of value. I advocated Herrera for Michael Taylor in the offseason because I thought it would be beneficial for both teams and I still think that is a fair deal maybe the Nats add in a starter like AJ Cole (who seems to have already lost his rotation spot with the Jeremy Hellickson signing) or another AAA starter.
