Strong All Around Victory for the Royals as they move to 6-1

The Royals opened it up in Minnesota monday with a victory over the second placed Twins (4-3), a strong offensive outburst from Kendrys Morales helped pace the Royals as he notched his first round tripper of the year. Danny Duffy had a strong outing for his second victory of the season; the biggest story of the day was Brandon Finnegan coming in and providing two and two thirds innings of relief only allowing one run to a Twins offense that got hot in the late innings. Greg Holland came in for the 9th and slammed the door by setting Minnesota down 1-2-3 for his 4th save this season.

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END AS THE ROYALS SURRENDER THE FINALE

The Kansas City Royals put forward an inspiring comeback effort but lackluster starting pitching led to a game of catchup that the Royals just couldn't play despite a clutch 8th inning Homerun from Eric Hosmer to make the game a 5-6 one run game. The Royals now move to 5-1 on the season, with their first loss. Kansas City will be back at it tomorrow against Minnesota in Minneapolis, Probable pitchers to come.

Mariners blow early six run lead, but fight back to top A's in extras


Oakland - It had all the makings for an easy night for the Mariners early on. The team erupted for a six run second inning, but Taijuan Walker struggled to make the lead hold up, and finally in the eighth inning the Athletics were able to crawl all of the way back thanks to a game tying single by Ben Zobrist. It then went to extras as the Mariners had to ask young Carson Smith to go as long as he could as they had used every other arm in the pen besides their closer. Smith pitched three solid innings and gave the M's a chance to finally take the lead in the 13th. When Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead single. Rodney was able to come in and slam the door picking up his third save early in the season. The Mariners will now be asking tomorrow's starter J.A. Happ to eat up a lot of innings as he goes up against Oakland ace Sonny Gray in tomorrow's tilt.

I must say, I have been baffled this weekend.

The Kansas City Royals have really turned it up a notch for the First series of the year; Sweeping the Series. 3 Starting pitching performances that went to at least 7 innings; two of which were near no-hitters. Ventura, Duffy and Volquez all look spectacular and I am excited to see where we are headed this season. Only two pitchers from the bullpen pitched across all 3 games (Holland and Herrera); Ned Yost would love to see that more often the rest of this season. It is not likely that you will see this all the way through the season, but it is a pleasant start. The offense was both good and bad, Gordon, Moose, Rios.... pretty much everyone except Cain and Morales swung the bat well. Morales did not log a hit in the 3 games but I am not too worried; it happens. It'll be likely that Morales will be out of the lineup at least once in the 3 games against the Angels. The bullpen looks ready to eat innings as the Big 3 all look strong (Herrera, Davis, Holland).

The Royals will take the stage tomorrow as they travel to Anaheim to take on the Los Angeles Angels,
Jason Vargas will take the hill against Hector Santiago.

Vargas who was moved back in the rotation in favor of Volquez is looking to have a good start to this season.

Minor League Report: Nothing yet, however we are on the eve of the beginning of the season. Kyle Zimmer will start the season in Double-A, it is not known if the Royals plan to put him on the 40 man roster.

Most Likely to get moved: At this point, I do not see anyone being actively put on the market for the near future. However, if Kris Medlen returns, it is most likely that someone in the rotation will be moved; all signs are pointing to Guthrie but time will tell.

That does it for my Royals Wrap up! I look forward to another great year of Royals Baseball,

Recap: The Royals complete an Opening series sweep of the Chicago White Sox on the back on another Near No-Hitter with Edinson Volquez who went 8 and a third until surrendering a hit to Micah Johnson. Alex Gordon had another tremendous performance offensively today with a Homerun and two Rbi's.
