Carlos Santana shows his evil ways as Indians beat Royals 10-3

Cleveland slugger Carlos Santana reached base all five times he came to the plate Sunday at Kauffman Stadium — a walk, a hit by pitch, a single, a pair of two-run homers and a single — as the Indians overpowered the Royals 10-3 and snapped Kansas City’s five-game winning streak.

Royals have a legitimate chance at earning wild-card spot

The last game of the Cleveland series left a bad taste in the Royals’ mouths, but with 58 games left, the team can still turn this season into a happy memory.  They will need to play their best of the season from here on out. But the difference between what’s required and what they’ve shown might not be as big as you’d think.

Billy Butler finds his stroke while playing first base

Since Eric Hosmer left the lineup after getting hit on the wrist by a pitch on July 20, Billy Butler has made five starts at first base, and he heated up during the weekend series against Cleveland, going six for nine in the last three games, including two mammoth, game-winning home runs.

Billy Butler bashes, Jeremy Guthrie battles as Royals beat Indians 7-5

The Royals on Saturday night beat the Cleveland Indians 7-5, and the fifth straight triumph became one of their most satisfying. The five-run deficit was their largest overcome in a victory this season. Kansas City has taken three straight games from the Indians, a team the Royals trailed in the Central Division standing entering the series.

The Ryan Raburn play wasn’t as bad as it looked

If you’re a baseball fan you’ve probably already seen it. Cleveland outfielder Ryan Raburn spiking a ball into the ground on a throw from left field. Raburn’s throw allowed Mike Moustakas to circle the bases and that eventually sent the game to extra innings where the Royals beat the Indians 2-1 on Thursday night. What hasn’t gotten as much publicity is why Raburn spiked the ball.

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy is keeping it real

Kansas City Royals left-hander Danny Duffy remains a refreshing presence as he breaks through as a major-league pitcher. There is a certain reassurance and inspiration in what is happening now for an appealing and regular guy who just happens to have an extraordinary talent.

Royals closer Greg Holland back in form

On Thursday, Kansas City Royals closer Greg Holland blew a save but his team still got the victory. On Saturday night, things were back to normal as Holland recorded a 1-2-3 ninth inning in a 7-5 victory over the Indians.

Raul Ibanez hits a historic triple for Royals

In his first month with the Royals, Raul Ibanez has already set a couple of difficult records. Just a few days after being signed, Ibanez became the oldest Royal to hit a home run when he knocked one out of Target Field on July 2 against the Twins. He added to his ledger Friday against the Indians when he became the oldest Royal to hit a triple.
