Ibanez homer gives Royals 1-0 win

August 1 at 11:52 p.m.

— The eldest member of the Royals settled into the batter’s box against the youngest member of Oakland’s pitching staff. Raul Ibanez cocked his head and trained both his eyes on Sonny Gray. In their previous encounter, the 24-year-old overran the 42-year-old with fastballs before dusting him off with a changeup.

  • Eric Hosmer could miss six weeks for Royals with stress fracture

    The pitch that injured Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer connected with his right hand on July 20 in Boston, and induced a spate of swelling around the area. That swelling, according to Hosmer, camouflaged the underlying damage, a non-displaced stress fracture of the third metacarpal, a vexing result that could sideline him up to six weeks.

  • Royals use solid pitching to defeat Twins

    Whether the Royals’ inactivity at the trade deadline was a vote of confidence for the current roster or a lack of other options, the team the front office stayed with patched it together for once again.

    The non-waiver trading deadline came and went on Thursday afternoon, and the Royals did not make a move.

  • Royals’ three-run sixth is enough to beat Twins

    The self-proclaimed fan wore a blue pullover and lingered at the base of the dugout steps. Ned Yost occupied a prime vantage point for the latest lukewarm offensive exhibition by the Royals.

  • Punchless Royals fall to Twins 2-1

    The crowd at Kauffman Stadium greeted the ending of the frame with silence, perhaps too stunned to jeer, so brief and so free of drama were the proceedings on the field. The seventh inning of a 2-1 Royals loss lasted a mere four pitches, and yet offered a wide window into this club’s primary weakness.

  • Santana, Indians take down Royals

    The Royals dodged and ducked the damage inflicted by Cleveland first baseman Carlos Santana for three days.

  • Royals rally from five runs down, win fifth straight

    Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie was laboring. The Indians played merry-go-round on the bases in the second inning and didn’t stop until they reached five runs.

  • Billy Butler’s bomb helps Royals beat Cleveland 6-4

    Billy Butler didn’t knock off a season’s worth of frustration with one swing, but Friday’s two-run homer in the eighth-inning to break a tie and send the Royals to a 6-4 victory over the Indians made an entire clubhouse smile.

  • Royals claw to 2-1 win in 14 innings

    Nori Aoki spread his arms and waited. At 11:34 p.m., four hours and 23 minutes after an interminable, preposterous night at the ballpark began, the Royals rushed to greet him in the dirt near second base.

  • Mike Moustakas helps Royals slide past White Sox 2-1

    The throw from center field was true, and Mike Moustakas understood he would require good fortune to snap a ninth-inning deadlock. Major-league baseball outlawed home-plate collisions this last offseason, so Moustakas said he chose the next best option, “trying to slide in hard” toward Chicago White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers.

  • Mike Moustakas homers twice as Royals halt skid

    Dayton Moore tapped his hand against the back of a bench. Seated next to him, Ned Yost kicked his foot up against a nearby railing. Together they sat inside the visitors’ dugout at U.S. Cellular Field and watched the latest edition of the Royals take batting practice.

  • White Sox hand Royals fourth straight loss

    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.

  • 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)
