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...

Pat StrathmanJuly 29, 2018

Down to their final five outs, the Falcons saw time running out on a remarkable season. Salina had one more incredible finish left. The Falcons plated four runs in the top of the sixth, reliever Seth Catania held the bats silent, and Salina completed the comeback for a 5-3 victory over Nickerson, claiming its first Class AAA state championship since 2007. Nickerson put pressure on the two...

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...

Falcons Move to State Semifinals

Pat StrathmanJuly 27, 2018

The Salina Falcons are not going home yet. Starter Cade Sterrett tossed a three-hitter, the offense took advantage of Pittsburg miscues, and the Falcons finished pool play undefeated with an 11-1 victory. Salina went 3-0 in the pool-play portion of the Class AAA state tournament and now plays in the semifinals on Saturday at 10 am. With one out in the third, Salina drew two walks and receive...

Stung by Errors, Junis Can’t Contain Yanks

Royals.comJuly 27, 2018

NEW YORK -- This certainly wasn't Royals right-hander Jakob Junis at his best. Junis, making his second start since coming off the disabled list because of back inflammation, was roughed up for nine hits and seven runs over 4 2/3 innings in a 7-2 loss to the Yankees on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium. But Junis certainly didn't get much help from his defense, especially shortstop Adalberto ...
