Jason Vargas posts quality start in no-decision vs. Indians
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Jason Vargas didn't factor into the decision Wednesday after giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out two in his team's 5-3 loss to the Indians.

Vargas was handed a two-run lead going into the bottom of the second inning but gave it right back after surrendering a two-run triple. His unearned run came in the sixth when Michael Brantley stole second base and the Royals committed two errors trying to get him out. Vargas owns a sparkling 1.54 ERA and 18:8 K:BB ratio through 35 innings. He'll face the Blue Jays at home Tuesday.

Jason Vargas hurls gem, blanks Twins
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals starting pitcher Jason Vargas continued his recent success with another gem, earning his second win of the season Friday night against Minnesota. The southpaw surrendered only seven hits and one walk while striking out four over seven innings pitched in a 5-0 victory.

Vargas has allowed just two runs over his last 14 innings pitches, all coming against the Twins. He owns a 1.24 ERA along with a sterling 0.93 WHIP over his first four starts (29 innings). He'll be seeking his third win when he takes the hill Wednesday in Cleveland.

Jason Vargas pitches well in no-decision Sunday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals starting pitcher Jason Vargas tossed seven strong innings Sunday, but walked away with a no-decision as Minnesota rallied for a 4-3 win. Vargas allowed two runs on five hits and three walks, while striking out four.

Vargas was involved in an unlikely pitcher's duel with Kevin Correia, as both pitchers exchanged zeroes for six innings. Vargas, however, was the first to crack as Josmil Pinto hit a go-ahead, two-run homer with one out in the seventh.

Vargas finished off the seventh without allowing any more runs and was actually in line for the win after Kansas City took a 3-2 lead in the top of the eighth. But the Royals bullpen couldn't hold the one-run lead, as Minnesota plated the tying and winning run in the bottom of the eighth.

Sunday was the first time Vargas allowed more than one earned run in three starts. He has a 1.64 ERA. He is scheduled to make his next start Saturday in a rematch with Minnesota.

Jason Vargas earns win with eight one-run innings Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Jason Vargas allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk in eight innings while striking out two in his team's 4-2 win over the Rays Monday.

Vargas (1-0) actually held the Rays scoreless through eight innings but gave up a home run to the first batter in the ninth inning, which ended up being his 110th and final pitch of the outing. He's shot out to a fantastic start this season, giving up just two earned runs in 15 innings over two starts. His next game will come Sunday against the Twins.

Jason Vargas shines in first start with Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jason Vargas avoided a loss Wednesday in his first start with the Royals through pitching well and a ninth inning rally by his team.

Vargas gave up just one run on five hits in seven innings in his regular season debut with his new team since signing a free-agent contract in the offseason. He walked one and struck out six while matching pitches with Tigers stud right-hander Max Scherzer.

The only mistake for Vargas was deposited over the wall by Tigers new leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler on the first pitch of the fourth inning. He worked his way out of jams in the sixth and seventh to maintain a 1-0 deficit.

Vargas will attempt to snag his first win of the year Monday against the Rays.
