I visited Royals Stadium/Kaufman Stadium mid-90s and didn't see that same support like today when they were very much weaklings with no signs of life.

Monday: Tigers 10 @ Royals 7. This was the case of Detroit & KC playing "anything you can do, I can do worse" with regards to relief pitching. 6 Royals relievers allowed 6 runs including Soria who faced 5 batters in the 8th after the Royals came back on the Tigers bullpen to take a 7-6 lead, failed to retire any of the 5 batters allowing 3 hits & 2 walks, and saw 4 of his 5 base runners to come around to score for the final 4 Tigers base runners. 5 Tigers relievers allowed 4 base runners, but Alex Wilson & Justin Wilson retired the final 6 Royals that came to the plate to preserve the win.
Tuesday: Tigers 0 @ Royals 1. Erick Skoglund, in his major league debut was spectacular pitching 6 1/3 shut out innings allowing only 2 hits and 1 walk while striking out 5. The only run of the game came on a Hosmer single in the 6th which scored Escobar.
Wednesday: Tigers 6 @ Royals 5. Hosmer recorded his 1,000th career base hit, but unfortunately, the Royals couldn't get the win as Justin Upton had the tiebreaking double in the 3rd which ultimately saw them go in front for good after the Royals raced out to a quick 3-0 lead.


Both teams have Thursday off: The Royals will stay at home to continue a 10 game home stand and welcome in the Indians for their second visit to the K this season. Jason Vargas (6-3, 2.39) gets the ball on Friday against Josh Tomlin (3-6, 5.79) for Friday's matchup, Carlos Carasco (5-2, 2.69) starts for the Indians against Jason Hammel (1-6, 6.18) on Saturday, and Trevor Bauer (5-4, 6.00) coming off a 14 strikeout game will take the ball for the Indians in the series finale Sunday against Skoglund (1-0, 0.00). Friday's game begins at 8:15, while Saturday & Sunday games begin at 2:15. Tigers head home and will face the White Sox for a 3 game series beginning on Friday night.

Back to back weekends they win the first 2 against the Indians and then get crushed in the final game when they have a chance at a sweep .


Friday: Indians 0 @ Royals 4. Jason Vargas pitched a complete game 7 hitter as all 4 Royals runs came in the 7th & 8th innings.
Saturday: Indians 5 @ Royals 12. Indians got 3 quick runs in the first on 2 homers: solo shot from carlos Santana and a 2 run homer from Bradley Zimmer. Royals took the lead for good in the 5th got within 1 on a Whit Merrifield double, took the lead on a Moose 2 run double, and Cain finished the scoring that inning with a 2 run homer, and would put the game on ice with a 5 run 7th.
Sunday: Indians 8 @ Royals 0. Roberto Perez and Daniel Robertson each had 2 run doubles for the Tribe in the 2nd and that would be all she wrote for this game. Mother nature interrupted this game for more than 2 hours with the Royals batting in the 2nd which caused Erick Skoglund to depart after 2 innings.


4 game series with the MLB best and current winners of 10 in a row Astros come into the K for a 4 game series beginning on Wednesday. Mike Fiers (2-2, 4.96) starts for the Astros on Monday against Ian Kennedy (0-5, 5.12) on Monday, David Paulino (0-0, 4.50) starts on Tuesday for the 'Stros against a TBA pitcher yet to be announced for the Royals, Jason Vargas (7-3, 2.08) starts on Wednesday against Dallas Keuchel (9-0, 1.67) and Thursday's series finale will see Jason Hammel (2-6, 5.93) take the ball against Lance McCullers junior (6-1, 2.71). All games will begin at 8:15. Indians have Monday off before beginning a 2 game interleague series in Denver against the Rockies Tuesday evening.

They are 9-7 against the Indians (reigning AL Champs) and the Astros (currently have a better pace than the 2016 Chicago Cubs) yet are 17-26 against all other teams .
Monday: Astros 7 @ Royals 3. They were in the game down 3-4 in the 9th after starting the game down 0-4, but Yuli Gurriel launched a 3 run homer in the 9th.
Tuesday: Astros 7 @ Royals 9. Royals scored the last 8 runs of the game including 4 in the 8th to tie the game at 7, and then Moose's walkoff homer in the 9th to win it.
Wednesday: Astros 5 @ Royals 7. Cheslor Cuthbert had 3 RBI's while Brian McCann had a 4 hit game for the Stros.
Thursday: Astros 6 @ Royals 1. Lance McCullers had a no hitter going into the 7th inning. Jose Altuve had the tiebreaking home run in the 9th and the Stros would add 4 more in the inning before they were done.


Royals will play their first interleague road game of the season on Friday as they start a 9 game West Coast road trip with 3 games in San Diego beginning on Friday. Erick Skoglund (1-1, 4.32) starts on Friday against Jhoulys Chacin (4-5, 5.65) on Friday, Miguel Diaz (1-1, 7.50) starts on Saturday for the Padres against Ian Kennedy (0-6, 5.33), and Jake Junis (1-0, 7.84) is the scheduled Royals starter on Sunday against Dinelson Lamet (2-1, 6.92). I know it's a small sample for a lot of these guys (Skoglund, Lamet, Junis & Diaz are all rookies) but these are some really bad era's for this series. Luckily its played at Petco Park where even with the new OF dimensions still favor pitchers. We'll see whether these era's get lowered a bit by the end of the weekend. Friday's game starts at 10:10, Saturday at 4:10, and Sunday at 4:40. Astros head home to face the Mike Trout less floundering Los Angeles "don't call them Anaheim anymore" Angels.

Friday: Royals 3 @ Padres 6. Matt Szczur had the tiebreaking homer in the 7th to break a 2-2 tie and Franchy Cordero and Yangervis Solarte would add on extra insurance runs in the 8th.
Saturday: Royals 12 @ Padres 6. Cain had 2 homers including a grand slam to finish a 9 run 8th inning which put them up 12-5 after starting the inning trailing 3-5, and the Royals would finish with 5 home runs overall on the day.
Sunday: Royals 8 @ Padres 3. Royals never trailed as they went up 4-0 before rookie Jake Junis took the mound on a Hosmer single and Moose 3 run homer. Moose would add a second homer in the 9th and the Royals also got big fly's from Gordon and Hosmer in the game as well. The Padres 3 runs would come on 3 solo home runs as well: 2 from Corey Spangenburg and than Jose Pirela.


Royals have Monday off and head up to San Francisco to play 2 games with the Giants. Jason Vargas (8-3, 2.18) faces Ty Blach (4-3, 3.64) on Tuesday, and Jonny Cueto (5-5, 4.33) faces Jason Hammel (2-6, 5.43) on Wednesday. Tuesday's game begins at 10:15 and Wednesday's begins at 3:45. Padres begin a 3 game home series against the Reds which begins on Monday evening.

Red Sox and Blue Jays are in town this week for 3 games each sandwiching an off day Thursday between the 2.

Another series they've won as they sandwich late comeback wins against the Red Sox Monday & Wednesday with a loss on Tuesday. My least favorite series of the year coming up on Friday with the Blue Jays coming into the K for a weekend set. Red Sox head home to play the Angels over the weekend.

4-2 home stand against the AL East. Granted, both the Red Sox and Blue Jays have struggled this year, but to win 2 of 3 against each is a pretty damn good week

Friday: Jays 4 @ Royals 5. One of those classic K finishes that the 2014-15 teams always seemed to have. Down 4-1 with 2 outs in the 9th with Salvy on 2nd and the bottom 3rd of the lineup due up, collectively hitting about .195 managed to keep it alive, turn the lineup over and win. Moss (.187 batting average) worked a 2 out walk. Escobar (.201 batting average) doubled home Salvy and moved Moss to 3rd. Gordon (.189 batting average) singled home Moss, and moved the tying run to 3rd and Whit doubled getting Gordon all the way home from 1st for the winner.
Saturday: Jays 2 @ Royals 3. Jays got 2 homers from Jose Bautista and Troy Tulowitski, while Hosmer homered, and than Gordon had a triple in the 7th for the eventual game-winner.
Sunday: Jays 8 @ Royals 2. Bonifacio accounted for both of the Royals runs with a home run in the first, and coming home on Hosmer's single in the 4th. Bautista homered in the 5th to tie it, and ended up with the game-winning RBI on a bases loaded walk in the 6th and the Jays would tack on 4 more that inning to run away with the game and avoid the sweep.

Both teams have Monday off before starting Thursday against intra-divisional rivals. Royals head to Detroit for the first time in 2017 to play the Tigers for a 3 game set. Matt Strahm (2-4, 4.80) starts for the Royals against Justin Verlander (4-4, 4.52), Ian Kennedy (1-6, 4.95) starts against Daniel Norris (4-5, 4.66) Wednesday, while Michael Fulmer (6-6, 3.29) starts for the Tigers in the series finale Thursday against jake Junis (2-1, 4.97). Tuesday & Wednesday games start at 7:10, while Thursday's game is at 1:10. Blue Jays play 3 games against the Orioles in Toronto in a repeat of the 2016 Wildcard game.
