Royals lose today by the same score from last night; 3-1. Both teams have a chance to win the series tomorrow night.

Default 10-20

Friday: Indians 1 @ Royals 3. Hosmer homer put them at 80 runs for the season and erased an early 1-0 deficit and Escobar's double in the 6th put them over 80 and gave them the win. Hammel with his best start so far as Royal, but even with this great start (1 run, 3 hits, 6 strikeouts in 6 innings) he's still got an ERA above 5.50. Goes to show you how horrendous he's been his other starts.
Saturday: Indians 3 @ Royals 1. Soria gave up 3 hits in the 8th inning to erase a 1-0 lead and than Herrera allowed back-to-back homers in the 9th to Carlos Santana and Francisco Lindor.
Sunday: Indians 1 @ Royals 0. Duffy with a great pitched game (1 run in 6.1) but got victimized by the inept offense as they got 1 hit against Steve Clevenger and 4 Indians relievers.


Quick 4 game road trip to play the Rays in St. Petersburg before they come home to play the Orioles next weekend and than the Yankees come in for 3 beginning on Tuesday. Great, so they've got 6 straight against 2 of the 3 best teams in baseball coming up here! I'm sure this is going to turn out GREAT .
Nate Karns (1-2, 4.97) starts against Blake Snell (0-2, 3.45) on Monday, Matt Andreise (2-1, 3.09) starts for the Rays against a TBD pitcher for the Royals Tuesday, Jason Hammel (1-3, 5.53) faces Chris Archer (2-1, 3.57) on Wednesday, while Jake Odorizzi (2-1, 2.88) squares off against Jason Vargas (4-1, 1.19) in the series finale Thursday. Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday games each start at 7:10 while the getaway game Thursday is at 1:10.
Chris Tillman (1-0, 0.00) gets the ball for the Orioles Friday against Danny Duffy (2-3, 3.50), Kevin Gausman (1-3, 7.55) starts against Nate Karns (1-2, 4.97) on Saturday while the TBD pitcher from game 2 of the Rays series will square off against Ubaldo Jimenez (1-1, 6.58) on Sunday afternoon. Friday is at 8:15, Saturday at 7:10, Sunday at 2:15 are the start times for the Orioles series.
CC Sabathia (2-1, 5.45) takes the ball for the Yankees on Tuesday against Jason Hammel (1-3, 5.53), Jason Vargas (4-1, 1.19) goes on Wednesday against Michael Pineda (3-1, 3.12), while Jordon Montgomery (2-1, 3.81) faces Danny Duffy (2-2, 3.89) in the series finale Thursday. All games in this series start at 8:15.
Indians head on the road for 3 games in Toronto in Edwin Encarnacion's return to Toronto this Monday-Wednesday, the Rays head up to Fenway Park for a 3 game weekend series, and after the Orioles leave town, they'll head up to Detroit to play the Tigers for 3 games Tuesday-Thursday.
I'm heading over to Italy for a week tomorrow, so I'll have a recap of these 3 series next week when I return. Hopefully they can have an 8-2/7-3 stretch in these 10 games get themselves back in the race.

Default 17-23

They were doing pretty well until the Yankees came in and beat them around like a drum. Hopefully that was a blip and not the return of the poor play from the first 25 or so games.


May 8: Royals 7 @ Rays 5. Cain and Hosmer each scored twice including Cain who had a little league home run after a ball hit to center got under Kevin Kiermaier's glove, rolled to the wall and allowed Cain to round the bases
May 9: Royals 7 @ Rays 6 (12 innings). Moose homer in the 12th was the difference
May 10: Royals 1 @ Rays 12. Colby Rasmus had 4 RBI's and 3 runs scored and Logan Morrison added 3 RBI's and 2 runs scored as Hammel sucked once again.
May 11: Royals 6 @ Rays 0. Vargas added to his MLB leading era with 7 shutout innings, and 5 Royals runs in the 8th inning blew the game open.
Friday: Orioles 2 @ Royals 3. Hosmer 8th inning double broke a 2-2 tie.
Saturday: Orioles 3 @ Royals 4. Orioles had 3 solo home runs including 2 from 3rd string catcher Francisco Pena (who isn't even with the team anymore) but it was an Adams home run in the 6th that broke the 3-3 tie that won it.
Sunday: Orioles 8 @ Royals 9. Chris Davis and Caleb Joseph each had 2 hits and 2 RBI's for the Orioles while Moose lead the Royals with 4 RBI's who erased a 5-0 deficit.
Tuesday: Yankees 7 @ Royals 1. Gary Sanchez had a 3 run homer and Chris Carter had a 2 run homer and Hammel stunk up the joint once again. Their 2 big free agent signings (Adams & Hammel) both stink! Hammel has an ERA above 6.15 approaching the end of May, and Adams is still cruising down the interstate and traveling in the left lane he doesn't look to be exiting anytime soon. Terrible!
Wednesday: Yankees 11 @ Royals 7. Vargas had his worst start of the year.................and STILL only has an ERA at 2:03. It's gonna take Hammel like 2 months to get his era below 3.20. Aaron Hicks had 3 RBI's to lead the Yankees.
Thursday: Yankees 1 @ Royals 5. Moose had 3 RBI's as the Royals salvaged the final game of the series.


3 game weekend series in Minnesota begins on Friday. Hector Santiago (4-2, 3.80) starts for the Twins against Nate Karns (2-2, 4.46), Ian Kennedy (0-3, 3.03) will come off the DL to start Saturday's game against rookie Adam Wilk (0-0, 5.40), Phil Hughes (4-2, 5.23) and Jason Hammel (1-5, 6.20) square off in the series finale Sunday. Friday's game will start at 8:10 while Saturday & Sunday's games will begin at 2:10. Yankees head to Florida to take on the Rays for a 3 game weekend series.

Traveling through the KC, Neb areas right now and can't believe the number of people with Royals paraphernalia on (cloths or car bumper stickers).

You don't see that kind of support of Tampa teams in the TB area, much less around the state.

I was sitting in a Barnes and Noble in Springfield, MO the other day during my travels and hear a lady talking about taking a weekend trip to see the Royals.....

Again, you don't see people in FL traveling a great distance to see the Rays play.

Is it because there's so much to do in FL? Why the support for baseball in the KC region?

Default 18-25

Friday: Royals 3 @ Twins 4 (10 innings). After Bonifacio put them up 3-0 with a 2 run homer in the 3rd, Robbie Grossman homer in the 4th got the Twins back to within 3-1 and Kennys Vargas got a 2 run homer off of Herrera in the 9th to force extra's where Jorge Polanco won it for the Twins with a sac fly.
Saturday: Royals 0 @ Twins 0 (postponed). Postponed due to rain. Made up as part of a traditional double header Sunday
Sunday game 1: Royals 6 @ Twins 4. Perez, Bonifacio and Moss (twice) each had homers for all the Royals scoring as they beat the Twins for the first time in 7 tries this year
Sunday game 2: Royals 4 @ Twins 8. Hosmer & Perez (twice) homered for the Royals, but Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler each had 2 run homers in the first to put the Twins in front to stay as they split the double header and won the series.


4 game series against the Yankees in New York starts on Monday (funny they played 4 games against the Yankees in New York last year too ). Jason Vargas (5-2, 2.03) starts for the Royals Monday against Michael Pineda (4-2, 3.42), Jordan Montgomery (2-3, 4.81) starts for the Yankees against Danny Duffy (3-3, 2.97), Luis Severino (2-2, 3.64) squares off against Jason Hammel (1-5, 6.20) Wednesday, and Nate Karns (2-2, 4.17) faces Masahiro Tanaka (5-3, 6.56) in Thursday's series finale. Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday all begin at 7:05 while Thursday's game will be at 1:05. Twins head out on the road and will play 3 games in Baltimore beginning on Monday.

I've lived in the KC Metro area for 22 years and still marvel at the exceptional support for the teams - not just the Royals, but also for the Chiefs and all of the college teams. Am very proud of the support.

For one thing, KC has had baseball for much longer than Tampa.

Also, the recent World Series win saw an explosion of Royals paraphernalia, locally and even nationally (atleast, much more than usual).

Mainly, I'd say it's due to 2014-15. That era made baseball alot more popular in this region
