Pilot to Bombardier! Royals Win on a Flurry of Solo Homers, 8-4

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Kansas City went from one hitter friendly park to another. The difference? They won in this one. The Royals ended their four-game skid with an 8-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Friday. Kansas City had not won a baseball game since last Saturday against the Cardinals, and were looking for any sort of way to turn their luck. They did so against Cubs number two guy, Jake Arrieta. Right out of...

Fluke? What the Numbers Say About the Royals

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   Fluky things can happen in April. Now, it’s we’re passed Memorial Day and one series until June and it’s a safe time to take a look at the standings and the league leaders and really get a serious feel about things. While, I think there are a couple American League teams – the Houston Astros (30-18) and Minnesota Twins (28-18), who oh by the way are tied for first in the AL...

Royals Drop Four Straight, Swept By Yankees, Lose 4-2

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   About a month back, the Royals wanted to fight everyone while having a, “Royals Against the World” type of attitude. Now, they are struggling and no longer in sole possession of first place. When you check the standings though, you’ll see a team that is 28-18 and 6-4 in their last ten games.   Chris Young pitching in Yankee Stadium sounds like a terrible idea. In fact, Guthrie,...

Royals Lose Three Straight, Drop Game Two, 5-1

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   This is the first time the Kansas City Royals have lost three in a row this season, so things could be worse. But for every “It could’ve been worse” that has been said, remember this: It could’ve been a whole lot better. Jason Vargas made his first start off the DL today. He went four innings, allowed two earned runs, and struck out six. For comparison, Jeremy Guthrie has struck...

Royals Look to Sweep the All-Star Game

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com When the Kansas City Royals won the American League in 2014, it did more than just end a 29 year drought of futility. It caused a bit of a wave. Teams and fans were forced to take notice that the team that had long stood as the punching bag was now in the position they themselves longed to be in. Being in the World Series is an incredible feat that puts the contestants in full view of the entire nation. And when...

Bronx Bombarded: Royals Slammed by Yankees, 14-1

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com When your starting pitcher gives up more home runs than he gets outs, you know you’re in for a long day. Jeremy Guthrie gave up three 3-run homers and a 2-run home run before recording an out in the second inning. The fact that the Yankees only scored 14 runs today is unbelievable, considering the Kansas City bullpen threw seven innings in relief today. Really, I’m just going to sum up the 14-run...

For the Royals, a Year Has Made All the Difference

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com     A year ago Friday, Mike Moustakas was hitting .152 with 4 HR, 17 RBI, nine runs in 139 plate appearances with just three multi-hit games and hasn’t homered in nearly a month (April 23), where he wrapped up hitting all four of his homeruns in an 8-game span. Eric Hosmer had one homerun, was hitting .285, but just a .722 OPS with 21 RBI. He wouldn’t hit his second HR until June 7....

Royals Take Rain-Shortened Game Two, Beat Cardinals 3-2

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com So it looks the Royals aren’t “Little Brother” anymore, huh? The Saint Louis Cardinals have now lost five of the last six to the Kansas City Royals. Since Edinson Volequez’s three inning implosion on May 7th, he’s thrown eighteen innings, and has only allowed six earned runs, including tonight’s six-inning performance against the Cardinals. The Royals only got five innings of...
