Found April 14, 2012 on Sports-Glory:

Benches cleared twice in one inning during the Cleveland Indians 11-9 win over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night resulting in player and manager ejections.

Royals starter Jonathan Sanchez hit Cleveland outfielder Shin-Soo Choo with a pitch causing benches to clear in the top of the third.  

No one was ejected and play resumed but tension remained between the teams and spilled over to the bottom of the inning.

In the bottom of the third Indians starter Jeanmar Gomez hit Mike Moustakes, Plate umpire Gary Darling ejected Gomez, third baseman Jack Hannahan and manager Manny Acta and both benches cleared once again.

Manager Acta has been ejected seven times now in his career.

Box Score: Cleveland Indians 11 – Kansas City Royals 9

A little late posting this one, but the Indians did beat the Royals in extra innings last night. The Indians will be extra innings experts before the end of this season if the current trend holds. Unfortunately their bullpen will also be “experts” or maybe just tired. Still, nice to come out on the winning end. Also there were a lot of fireworks with bean balls and ejections...

Yet here we are on Monday morning, feeling completely different and much better about our Wahoos. Baseball is an amazing...

Royals must improve offense to compete in AL

Friday's Royals' opener obviously was lost early when center fielder Jarrod Dyson misplayed a fly ball with two outs, allowing the Indians to eventually come up with four additional runs during a seven-run, punch-in-the-gut first inning. But here's the thing: If the Royals are going to hang around in the American League Central throughout this summer, they are going...

Royals' Opening Day bruises will heal

"No, obviously not the way we wanted to open up at home for our fans," Royals manager Ned Yost said after an 8-3 loss to Cleveland at Kauffman Stadium. "Just got away from us quick." Monet couldn't have painted...

Indians use big first inning to beat Royals, 8-3

Michael Brantley had a pair of hits during a seven-run first inning, and the Cleveland Indians roughed up Luke Hochevar before knocking him from the game in an 8-3 victory Friday that spoiled the Royals' home opener.

Royals' Hochevar leaves after taking liner off leg

Royals starter Luke Hochevar had to be helped off the field after taking a line drive off his left ankle to end the fourth inning against Cleveland on Friday. Hochevar was in the middle of his follow-through when Carlos Santana rapped a liner off the right-hander's ankle. The ball caromed to first base for the final out of the inning, but Hochevar remained down on the mound...

Chris Getz struggles sliding into second

In the bottom of the first inning of the Kansas City Royals' 13-7 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, Chris Getz put on a sliding clinic of how NOT to dive head-first into the keystone sack. With Eric Hosmer batting after a Getz single, Getz attempted to steal twice, but both times Hosmer wasted the pitch and Getz would have to return to first. Both times, though, Getz...

What do we know?

The Kansas City Royals are a week into their 2012 campaign. Seven games is not a large sample size. However, there are some things you can infer from the Royals past behavior during previous seasons under the current administration. I’m going to make an attempt at discerning what we know about the Royals already, and what I’m not sure about. Since Luke Hochevar got the start...
