Rex Hudler looks like he still can play the field in the big leagues. Hudler played every position except pitcher and catcher during his 13-year major league career. Now an announcer for the Kansas City Royals, Hudler used his old skills to make a fantastic grab in the broadcast booth. Your browser does not support iframes. The catch is not only great, but his celebration isn’t too shabby either. The muscle flex just never gets old. But Hudler did not keep the ball for himself — he tossed it down to the lower level so a young fan could have a souvenir. How generous. The Royals could have used Hudler on the field Saturday, as they fell 2-1 to the Seattle Mariners.Filed under: Andrew Battifarano, MLB, Top Stories

Two soft runs lead Ms past Royals, and the streak reaches three

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Make that three in a row now for the Royals after a disheartening 2-1 loss to the Mariners, who were aided by two soft runs.  Despite the sudden slump, Royals designated hitter Billy Butler said there is no reason for alarm: "We're just biding our time until we go on another run."

Mariners rattle Holland in the ninth and boot Royals from first place

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The one thing still missing from the Royals' recent surge is a huge pull-one-out-of-their-you-know-what win or a dramatic walk-off.

Gordon, facing Seattle closer Fernando Rodney, could...

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

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 wreaked havoc for Shields. I just don’t get it. This has been a typical start for James Shields as of late. I’m on the same...

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

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.

Mariners score twice in the ninth to beat Royals 7-5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Brad Miller homered off Royals closer Greg Holland to break a ninth-inning tie, and the Seattle Mariners beat Kansas City 7-5 despite blowing an early five-run lead Friday night. Charlie Furbush (1-4) inherited a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the eighth, but the Mariners reliever calmly retired Mike Moustakas on a lazy popup to shallow right field. Furbush then...

Mariners complete sweep of Royals with 2-1 win

If you believe in momentum — if you think teams take things forward from wins or losses — then the Mariners’ three-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals over the weekend could serve as a launching point.
