Santana, Indians take down Royals

Today at 6:22 p.m.

— 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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
