Royals SP Johnny Cueto gets roughed up by Red Sox on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals starter Johnny Cueto had a rather forgettable outing against the Red Sox on Friday. The veteran right-hander allowed a season-high seven runs (six earned) on 13 hits over six innings in a 7-2 loss. 

Cueto (9-8, 2.70 ERA) got knocked around early and often in this one, as he allowed three runs to score in the second inning, thanks to five consecutive hits by the Red Sox. He gave up a couple more runs in the fourth before allowing a two-run home run to Josh Rutledge in the sixth.

This was Cueto's fifth start as a member of the Royals. He hadn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of the previous four outings.

Royals new ace Johnny Cueto blanks Tigers in home debut
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals fans have embraced starting pitcher Johnny Cueto from the moment he was traded from Cincinnati to Kansas City. Cueto returned the favor Monday night.

The right-hander excelled in his home debut against Detroit by hurling a complete-game shutout. He allowed just four hits, walked none and fanned eight for his finest performance in five weeks.

Cueto retired the side in order five times in taming the Tigers. Only J.D. Martinez, who doubled in the first, reached second base against him.

"He actually heard [the crowd] in the eighth and that's when he was excited to go back out for the ninth," Cueto told ESPN through a translator. "That's when he asked Ned (Yost) to please send him back out."

The right-hander has been tearing it up since a mini-slump in mid-July. He has given up only five runs in his last 30 innings in reducing his ERA to 2.05, which ranks second in the majors behind Zack Greinke.

Royals SP Johnny Cueto outperformed in Wednesday defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Good wasn't good enough for Royals newcomer Johnny Cueto on Wednesday. He was outpitched by Detroit rookie Matt Boyd.

Cueto yielded two earned runs on five hits in seven innings with two walks and just two strikeouts, his lowest total in a game in which he has pitched more than six frames this season.

His evening was marred only by a run-scoring triple by Anthony Gose in the third inning and sacrifice fly by Victor Martinez in the fourth.

Cueto remains winless in two starts with Kansas City.

Royals' Johnny Cueto gets no-decision in first start with new team
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals newcomer Johnny Cueto made his team debut on Friday. He went six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out seven, but did not factor in the decision as the Royals dropped the game 7-6 to the Blue Jays in extra innings.

Cueto was handed a 3-0 lead after the first inning, but he allowed a two-run double to Josh Donaldson in the third with the tying run coming across in the fourth. The Royals rallied back, and Cueto left the game leading 5-3. But the bullpen wasn't able to hold on the lead, leaving Cueto with the no-decision.

Pitching between the Reds and the Royals this year, Cueto went 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA in six July starts.
