Soria's scoreless streak comes to an end

A ground ball just out of reach. A line drive mishandled in right field. A walk to a .145 hitter. A hanging curveball. It all added up to a nightmarish performance for Royals reliever Joakim Soria, who hadn't allowed a run previously this season in nine outings, but gave up four in the eighth inning Friday, allowing the Twins to wipe out a 4-2 deficit and win 6-4.

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 20:02:52 EDT

Royals searching for discipline at plate

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 14:33:29 EDT

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 00:45:26 EDT

Cold bats likely putting strain on Royals' arms

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 01:18:02 EDT

Before long, a breaking point could come for a Royals pitching staff that has been lights-out lately but has little to show for it because of an anemic offense. The Royals may be reaching that point after a 12-1 loss at the hands of the White Sox on Monday night. It was the eighth straight game the Royals have scored two runs or fewer -- a franchise record.

O'Hearn homers for third time in four games

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 22:28:36 EDT

ARLINGTON -- Given how stagnant their offense has been for most of 2017, it's not hard to imagine what sort of trouble the Royals would be in if their starting rotation hadn't been so spectacular at the same time. Friday's 6-2 loss against the Rangers didn't leave much to the imagination.
