Royals 2, Indians 1: Kluber near perfect, yet nothing to show for it

Games like Thursday night are why I love baseball and I why baseball frustrates the heck out of me at the exact same time. I mean what other game can one player completely shut down an entire team for the duration of regulation, only to be on the hook for a loss because of one of the worst and strangest defensive plays you will ever see? The highs were so high last night, and the...

Nori Walks Off, Royals Sink Indians in the Bottom of the 14th, 2-1

  This game didn’t see it’s first hit until the top of the fifth inning when Carlos Santana singled off of Danny Duffy. The first Royals base runner came in the seventh when Omar Infante singled, but was stranded. The first of two Royals runs came in the eighth inning when Mike Moustakas hit a little league homerun. It was ruled a double and a two-base throwing error, and was...

Second Thoughts Game #102: Indians 1, Royals 2

A perfect game that could've been. A throw that shouldn't have been made. A shutout victory that wasn't. It's tough to definitively say what could've been in the game of baseball, but if there was ever one single play to point to as the primary cause for a loss, Ryan Raburn accomplished that feat on Thursday. Danny Duffy had his good stuff working, but Corey Kluber...

Kluber got Raburn-ed, and the Axe Drops in Extras; Royals 2, Indians 1

The low scoring affair in Minnesota followed the Tribe to Kansas City as they managed to score only one run in tonight’s contest. Defensive miscues and two misplaced pitches led to the Royals taking the first game in this four game series in walk-off fashion. Everyone in Cleveland was keeping their mouth shut as Corey Kluber was throwing a gem against the Royals through six innings...

Series Preview: Royals vs. Cleveland Indians, July 24-27

The Kansas City Royals return home to face their division rivals, the Cleveland Indians in a four-game set that could help to bury the Royals more in the American League Central standings or it could be a springboard to a renaissance that leads to a renewed presence in the playoff race for both a wild card and even a division title. The Royals are just 4-5 against the Indians this...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Jul 24

Thursday marks our usual shortened MLB schedule. We have the usual names up top, but a new name brings up the rear. With a projected 3.38 ERA and 1.28 WHIP against the Phillies, it’s not that the system projects Tim Hudson to get lit up. Rather, he just doesn’t have the strikeout punch to make much of an impact in that category and he happens to draw a buzz saw matchup, Cole...

Lifeless Royals Lose Again, 2-1 To Red Sox

Here are some tasteful stats that Ryan Landreth has dug up that may give you no hope at all for the Kansas City Royals. “The Royals have outhit their opponent 11 times in their 47 losses, with another 7 times matching their opponent’s hit total.

Outcome of Ventura's pitching duel Royals' last hope in Boston series

At least one pitchers' duel seemed possible during a three-game series between the Kansas City Royals and Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Now a second one seems quite probable. After a showcase of solid pitching in the second game of the set, Jon Lester and Yordano Ventura will look to keep it going in Sunday's series finale. James Shields and Clay Buchholz turned in average...

7/19/14- Red Sox Pregame Notes vs Royals. Shane Victorino is back!

Boston, Mass- The Red Sox, fresh off of a 5-4 win against the Royals last night, take on Kansas City in the second game of a three game series. Kansas City gives the ball to Danny Duffy, whose 2.76 ERA leads the Royals pitching staff. Duffy has gone into the sixth inning in each of his last eight starts, so he has been effective of late. On the other side of the diamond, Boston counters...

Offense, Umpire Dooms Royals as They Drop Game Two, 2-1

I’m going to keep it short and sweet tonight. Poor Danny Duffy. Danny Duffy made another fabulous start tonight, but it was soiled by the offense yet again. Duffy gave us six innings of quality work as he only gave up one earned run. It was an errant throw by Duffy that gave the Tigers their second run. Nine men left on base tonight. Nine. That’s absolutely pathetic. That’s...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The frustration level is mounting these days within the Royals' clubhouse. Center fielder Lorenzo Cain was visibly upset -- and his locker neighbor Jarrod Dyson was even more furious -- over one of the most controversial calls of the season, a hitter's interference call in the eighth inning that short-circuited a rally that seemed likely to push the Royals...

Game 2014.69 Postgame: Tigers 2, Royals 1

I have to admit it felt pretty good to win that one, especially since the game started for me with a creeping feeling that Danny Duffy was going to no-hit the Tigers. As predicted, JD was the man of the hour again, hitting his 3rd home run of the series and providing the winning run. As Suarez’ flame has quietly dimmed, JD’s continues to burn, and he is the Another Guy of the...

Royals Extension Candidate: Danny Duffy

As Danny Duffy prepares to take the hill against the Tigers and Anibal Sanchez on Thursday afternoon, he will do so with the confidence of having been very good as a starter since returning from Tommy John surgery last year. He's thrown 78.1 innings in 19 games (13 starts) since returning from his year-long injury exile and seems to be getting better with each pitch thrown. As...

Danny Duffy dominates as Royals cruise to 9-1 victory over White Sox

Danny Duffy waited 762 days to return to this ballpark, the sight of his most vulnerable moment as a major-leaguer. He allowed himself a moment of reflection as he stood inside the visitors’ bullpen at U.S. Cellular Field before a 9-1 stomping of the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. “The last time I was here,” he said to himself as he warmed up, “I went under the knife.”...

Kansas City Royals’ Danny Duffy pitched seven scoreless innings, with five hits, no errors, one walk and nine strikeouts. That, my friends, is a very good performance. This was Duffy’s first start at US Cellular Field in Chicago since 2012. That year, he suffered an injury to his elbow, and eventually had Tommy John surgery. Duffy has been showing some impressive performances...
