Royals SP Yordano Ventura remains on roll by stifling Tigers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The new-and-improved Yordano Ventura continued to pitch like an ace Wednesday for the Royals.

Ventura hurled seven innings against visiting Detroit and yielded only one run on five hits. Most indicative of his dominance was his one walk and 11 strikeouts. The lone run scored on a groundout in the sixth.

The right-hander turned on the switch in early August and it has remained on. He has given up only four runs on 20 hits in his last 32 innings with a whopping 43 strikeouts. His 4.24 ERA is at its lowest point since April 12.

Royals SP Yordano Ventura powers past Orioles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It took about four months, but Royals flamethrower Yordano Ventura has finally found himself on the mound. The Orioles paid for it Thursday.

Ventura was dealing. He racked up a career-high 11 strikeouts in six shutout innings. He allowed just two hits and walked four in raising his record to 9-7.

He walked two and struck out the side in the first, then really settled down. He retired seven in a row at one point and 10 of the last 12 batters he faced.

Ventura has given up just three runs over his last 25 innings and has won his last five decisions. His ERA has shrunk to 4.41, its lowest point since May 31.

Royals' Yordano Ventura overcomes poor control to blank Tigers
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura had one of his finest outings this season, as he blanked the Tigers over six solid innings on Tuesday. Ventura allowed just two hits and struck out eight, though he did walk six, which matches a career-high. But Ventura was backed by the Royals' offense in the 6-1 victory.

Ventura (7-7, 4.97 ERA) needed 104 pitches (63 strikes) to get through the sixth, but did a good job of preventing any runs to score despite the high walk total. 

Ventura came into the game on a downward trend, as he had given up 11 runs over 12 innings in his previous two starts.
