Crime

From jail, man charged in 10 highway shootings offers a defense

Mohammed Whitaker, the man charged in 10 shootings in March and April on area roadways, has called The Kansas City Star at least eight times in recent weeks from the Jackson County jail, saying he’s been wrongly accused.

Jeremy Guthrie throws a quality start, but the offense doesn’t come through

Jeremy Guthrie threw six innings and gave three earned runs: that’s a quality start. The Royals bullpen supplied a quality finish; three scoreless innings from Aaron Crow, Scott Downs and Jason Frasor. Once again the Royals pitched well, but couldn’t come up with enough offense to make the pitching pay off. Kansas City has scored two runs in the last three games. They’ve already gotten one hitting coach replaced; at some point you need to look at the players.
