Kansas City Royals All-Star pitcher Kelvin Herrera and right fielder Alex Rios have been diagnosed with chickenpox, raising concerns that others on the AL Central-leading team may have been exposed.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Jayson Werth hit a two run homer, Bryce Harper drove in three runs and the Washington Nationals rallied from a six run hole before holding off the Kansas City Royals for an 11-10 victory Friday night.
Harper also made a terrific catch in the ninth for Washington, which scored seven times in the fourth inning of its fourth consecutive win. Ian Desmond had a pair of hits during the outburst.
Denard Span, Ryan Zimmerman, Tyler Moore and Anthony Rendon also had RBIs as the Nationals piled up 11 runs for the second time in three games – they beat the Cubs 11-6 on Tuesday night.
