About the only thing missing from the Royals this season (outside of maybe another starting pitcher) is a team mascot.
Third baseman Mike Moustakas may have taken care of that. Before the Royals’ 5-1 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Moustakas showed off his new puppy:
Andy McCullough, the Star’s award-winning beat writer, said Gus is a miniature Australian shepherd and that noted dog lover Danny Duffy instantly fell in love with Gus.
After the game, Moustakas let Gus take a stroll on the field at Kauffman Stadium.
