Royals land 4 starters in All-Star Game in Cincinnati

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The AL champion Kansas City Royals had so many starters voted into the All-Star Game on Sunday that they ran out of seats for all of them. Not that it was a problem.

With a good-natured smile, he carried it back onto the stage and settled in alongside...

Keuchel spun eight innings of shutout ball to silence Kansas City. Duffy, meanwhile, delivered his second-longest start of the season by going 6 2/3 innings, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks...

A handful of Royals now lead All-Star balloting with four days left

Seems fans of teams other than Kansas City finally woke up because the Royals' domination of the All-Star Game balloting is slipping. If the voting ended today (which it doesn't), only five Kansas City position players would be in Cincinnati on July 14. That's down from a high of eight two weeks ago and seven last week. Of course, it would still be more starters than any other team...

Never in Doubt: HDH Closes Out the Sweep; Yost Makes History

The Royals got things going early in this one, starting with a leadoff double by Alcides Escobar. He was eventually driven in on a sacrifice fly from Lorenzo Cain. They weren’t done in the 1st yet, however, because after a Hosmer double and Morales single with two outs, KC found themselves ahead 2-0.

You know you’re in for a long night when you can’t figure out the opposing team’s starting pitcher at the plate. Matt Garza did very little figuring out of anybody, as each batter in the starting lineup recorded at least one hit tonight in a 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.   When the Kansas City starting rotation became plagued with injuries, nobody ever expected...
