2-0 Giants. Brandon Crawford has both RBI's and both have resulted from a bad play by Alcides Escobar at shortstop.
The Giants overcame a 4-1 deficit, by scoring 10 unanswered runs in their 11-4 win over the Royals last night. Ryan Vogelsong allowed all of the 4 runs scored by the Royals, then the Giants bullpen went into shutdown mode, by pitching 6 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball. Meanwhile, the Royals bullpen allowed 8 runs, 10 hits and 4 walks in 5 innings. The Giants exposed a shaky Royals bullpen and showed that keeping Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland off the mound is the key to defeating the Royals. Joe Panik, Buster Posey, Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval rebounded from a combined 0-15 night on Friday, with a 8-17 game on Saturday night. 11 different Giants collected hits in the game and 6 Giants drove in runs in the contest. Hunter Pence is hitting .467 to lead all batters in the 2014 World Series. Pablo Sandoval hitting .333 is the only other Giant hitting over .300. Salvador Perez is hitting .357 and Alcides Escobar has hit .353 and are only Royals hitting over .300. Pence also leads all players ...

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, May 20, 2014 KANSAS CITY – Prior to tonight’s game at Kansas City, the Chicago White Sox placed right-handed pitcher Matt Lindstrom on the 15-day disabled list with a sublexing peroneal (outside) tendon in his left ankle and purchased the contract of right-handed pitcher Javy Guerra from Class AAA Charlotte. Lindstrom, 34, suffered the injury in the ninth inning of last night’s victory over the Royals while attempting to field a bunt by Alcides Escobar and will return to Chicago to undergo further examination. He is 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA (7 ER/19.0 IP) and six saves in 19 appearances this season. Guerra, 28, is 1-1 with a 2.33 ERA (5 ER/19.1 IP) and three saves in 14 relief appearances with Charlotte in 2014, limiting right-handers to a .229 (8-35) average. He was claimed by the White Sox off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers on March 26. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Guerra has gone 4-5 with a 2.90 ERA (33 ER/102.1 IP), 87 strikeouts and 29 saves over part ...
Escobar's slam, Giavotella's blast power Royals Offense picks up for Guthrie, who gave up seven runs in 4 2/3 ... Right on cue, the Royals' bats came to life on their alternate day schedule, this time with Home Run firepower, and with it, another victory. Alcides Escobar banged a grand slam and Johnny Giavotella socked a go-ahead three-run blast in the Royals' 9-7 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday with a Mother's Day crowd of 30,447 at Safeco Field. That gave them a 4-3 record on their trip to San Diego and Seattle. Starting last Wednesday, the Royals had 14 hits (a win), four hits (a loss), 16 hits (a win) and four hits (a loss). Then came Sunday's double-digit helping of hits and another victory. Escobar got the sunny afternoon off to a booming start with the first grand slam of his career. He used a pink bat for the special occasion. The second inning against left-hander Roenis Elias began with singles by Danny Valencia and Alex Gordon and the bases got jammed when third baseman Kyle Seager c ...

Vargas shuts down Twins, leads Royals to 5-0 win KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jason Vargas pitched seven shutdown innings, Mike Moustakas cracked a two-run homer and the Kansas City Royals romped to a 5-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night. Alcides Escobar had three hits and Omar Infante also drove in two runs for the Royals, who followed up a sweep at the hands of Minnesota last weekend by sweeping Houston and then taking the first of their three-game set against the Twins this weekend.

The crafty left-hander lowered his ERA to 1.24 while going at least seven innings in each of his four outings this season. Vargas put runners on base each of the first five innings, though ...
The Kansas City Royals find themselves struggling to score runs, and this poor run production is costing them games. The team is tied for twenty-eighth in the league in runs scored, despite a middle of the pact average.Kansas City has scored just 28 runs in their nine games. They have just one homerun, and 15 extra-base hits, both of which rank dead last in baseball.It is interesting that it is not the lack of hitting that is the problem. Catcher Salvador Perez is fifth in the American League with a .393 average. Second baseman Omar Infante is tenth at .346, and Norichika Aoki is also above .300; .303 in fact. Only three Royals players are struggling out of the gate, although they are all really struggling. 3B Mike Moustakas is just 3-30, and SS Alcides Escobar is hitting just .167 and DH Billy Butler is at .194. However, they are the exception, and not the rule.While the hitting has looked good for the most part, the issue has become their lack of clutch hitting. The Royals are hitting just .227 as a tea ...

(AP) — Bruce Chen worked five innings and Salvador Perez doubled home two runs and the Kansas City Royals beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 on Wednesday night.

Royals relievers Tim Collins, Will Smith and Greg Holland preserved the lead, allowing just one hit, to keep the team's playoff chances alive.
