White Sox hand Royals fourth straight loss

July 21 at 10:05 p.m.

CHICAGO – Inside his office, hours before a 3-1 defeat to the White Sox on Monday, Royals manager Ned Yost knew precisely the prescription for his plummeting baseball team.

  • Red Sox send Royals to third straight loss

    The eyes of Alex Gordon watered as he choked down a bite of apple. A coughing fit had interrupted him as considered a 6-0 Royals loss, a three-game sweep by the Boston Red Sox and a return to a sub-.500 record. When he resumed speaking, bile flowed from his mouth, the only sound of distress inside the otherwise milquetoast clubhouse of a third-place team.

  • Royals’ offense fails to support Duffy in loss to Red Sox

    The challenge arrived in the form of a 92-mph fastball. Danny Duffy did not have to throw it. But he opted for valor rather than discretion, and the Royals suffered the consequences in a 2-1 loss to the Red Sox.

  • Red Sox outmaneuver Royals, win 5-4

    Scott Downs loped into the outfield grass, and Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley, Jr., understood his night was over. He turned his back to the diamond, waiting for a pinch hitter to replace him. The impending maneuver appeared obvious to so many inside Fenway Park, except the man behind the controls inside the Royals dugout.

  • Preparation obsession helps make Royals’ Alex Gordon special (VIDEO)

    He did not cave to temptation. Alex Gordon would like to make this clear as he recalls the last time he ate a cheeseburger. His body betrayed him, not his will.

  • Highs and lows for Royals from first half of season (VIDEOS)

    The Royals finished the first half of the season with a record that is slightly above .500 (48-46) and moments that have been good and bad. Here are the highs and lows from the season.

  • Glass says Royals can make playoffs, season not make-or-break

    David Glass witnessed the apex of his club firsthand. Glass flew from his home in Arkansas to Detroit during the middle of June, the hottest stretch of Royals baseball in 2014, a 10-game winning streak that culminated three consecutive victories over their American League Central rulers and a temporary stay in first place.

  • Yankees' Derek Jeter goes out in style in All-Star game (VIDEO)

    His glove never departed his left hand, and the ovation never slackened. The fans inside Target Field clapped, watching Derek Jeter extend hugs to each fellow All Star inside the AL dugout. When Jeter finished saluting his teammates, he would receive their adulation.

  • Royals salvage series finale

    It took 33 2/3 innings and nearly 12 hours of baseball for the Royals to take a lead during a four-game series with the Tigers.

  • Royals lose third straight to 1st place Tigers

    This was supposed to be Kansas City's most important series in at least a decade, a matchup against Detroit that featured the top two teams in the AL Central.

  • Tigers beat Royals a third straight time

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – In all likelihood, James Shields is in his final months as a member of the Royals starting rotation. Just one game on Sunday, an All-Star Break, and half a season to go.

  • Royals’ momentum busted by 16 Detroit runs

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – On the bright side, the Royals get three more cracks at the division-leading Tigers before the All-Star break, three more chances to chip away at a 5 1/2-game deficit in the AL Central.

  • Perez’s ninth-inning homer lifts Royals to win

    Salvador Perez wagged his tongue as he bounded up a flight of steps away from the scene of his heroics. The door to the visitors’ clubhouse at Tropicana Field slammed behind him. The concrete walls could not muffle the resulting roars from his teammates.

  • Royals’ Vargas scheduled for appendectomy; Gordon has injured wrist

    ST. PETERBURG, Fla. – Kansas City Royals left-hander Jason Vargas has been taken to the hospital and will have an appendectomy.

  • Kansas City’s Shields triumphant against old team

    He had twirled shutouts on this surface and spilled champagne on its fringes, but never before had James Shields stood atop the Tropicana Field mound wearing the road grays of the Kansas City Royals.

  • Cleveland pitching sinks Royals

    The pitch made Danny Valencia flinch. It was a curveball from Indians starter Corey Kluber, but Valencia could not know that. He moved to avoid the baseball only to watch it plummet into the upper edge of the strike zone, a cruel offering from a bully on the mound.

  • Royals’ Ibanez determined to keep ahead of age

    At the start of winter mornings, Raul Ibanez resembles most well-to-do fathers in middle age. He rises early at his home outside Seattle, enjoys breakfast with his family and drives his five children to school. Then he begins the three-hour exercise routine that allowed him, at 42, to emerge as a potential midseason upgrade for the Royals.

  • Royals fall short in 7-3 loss

    His knees caked in dirt and his face shining with perspiration, Billy Butler made the universal sign for “safe.” He had just been cut down at third base attempting to advance from first. The call on the field was wrong, Butler communicated to the Royals dugout in the fifth inning of a 7-3 loss to the Indians on Saturday, and replay would vindicate him.

  • Moustakas, Colon and Ventura lead way in Royals’ 7-1 win

    Mike Moustakas has suffered indignities this baseball season. He slumped from the start, heard jeers in his home ballpark and earned a demotion to the minor leagues. His at-bats often end in strikeouts or pop-ups, a flurry of failure that obscures an undeniable reality: He can still pulverize a baseball when his barrel connects.

  • Royals’ Greg Holland would like to see Wade Davis at All-Star Game

    Royals relief pitchers Wade Davis and Greg Holland dusted the Twins on Wednesday afternoon with ease, reminding once more why Royals manager Ned Yost has developed an in-game strategy based solely around grabbing a lead after seven innings. Will they return to Target Field in two weeks for the All-Star Game? The rosters will be announced on Sunday.
