Royals.comAugust 2, 2018

CHICAGO -- It took over two months, but Royals right-hander Jakob Junis finally got back into the win column.

O’Hearn Homers in MLB Debut to Power Royals

Royals.comAugust 1, 2018

CHICAGO -- A few days ago, Royals rookie Ryan O'Hearn was still toiling with Triple-A Omaha, still dreaming about when his shot at the big leagues would come. That shot came two days ago when O'Hearn was informed he would be joining the Royals here. And O'Hearn, 25, didn't waste much time making the moment matter. In his second at-bat Tuesday, O'Hearn hit a two-run home run -- his first big lea...

Dozier, Salvy, Herrera go Deep in Royals’ Loss

Royals.comJuly 30, 2018

NEW YORK -- The Royals have been waiting patiently for infielder Hunter Dozier, presumably a part of the team's rebuild, to snap out of a dreadful slump. There were signs of that on Sunday in the Royals' 6-3 loss to the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. The Royals lost three of four in the series. Dozier, the team's top Draft pick in 2013, entered the game 9-for-57 since June 29 (.158). After he ne...

Royals Get No Relief, Drop Nightcap in NY

Royals.comJuly 29, 2018

NEW YORK -- Left-hander Brian Flynn had been so effective over the last seven weeks that perhaps his name should have surfaced as a possible trade chip. Flynn went into the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader at Yankee Stadium sporting a 1.74 ERA since June 8. But his run of success came to an end. After throwing two scoreless innings of relief, he gave up two runs in the eighth, wiping out a o...

Royals Hold Off Yanks with 2 HRs in DH Opener

Royals.comJuly 29, 2018

NEW YORK -- This was not Royals rookie right-hander Brad Keller at his best. Keller struggled finding the strike zone (92 pitches, 51 strikes) and was peppered for nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. Still, Keller left the game with a two-run lead. The Royals, who led 6-0 at one point, held on for a 10-5 win in Game 1 of a doubleheader Saturday at Yankee Stadium. Brian Goodwin, acquired from the Nation...
