Jason Vargas struggles Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Jason Vargas had a tough start Wednesday against the Indians. 

Vargas allowed four runs on four hits over four innings. He struck out one and walked three during the outing. Vargas ran into trouble immediately. After getting two quick outs, Vargas gave up a single and a walk in the first inning. Yan Gomes stepped to the plate and belted a three-run homer, giving Vargas the early deficit. Vargas would settle in over the next three innings, but was pulled in the fifth after hitting a batter. That run would come around to score, and was charged to Vargas.

Vargas didn’t go five innings, so he wasn’t eligible for a win. He picked up the no-decision.

Jason Vargas gets knocked around Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Jason Vargas lasted just 3 1/3 innings Friday.

Vargas allowed five runs on nine hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out one and did not issue any walks during the outing. Vargas found himself in trouble in the first inning. After a leadoff single, Vargas gave up a run-scoring double to Miguel Cabrera. Victor Martinez drove in Cabrera, adding to the damage. Eugenio Saurez would add to the fun, driving in the third run of the inning. In the second inning, Torii Hunter would add a run on a double. After a quiet third, Vargas gave up his final run in the fourth. Ian Kinsler doubled in the final run given up by Vargas. He was pulled from the game at that point. 

With the loss, Vargas dropped to 11-10. He’ll take on the Indians in his next start.

Jason Vargas can't make lead hold up
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Though Jason Vargas had his struggles on Sunday against the Red Sox, he pitched well enough to hand a one-run lead over to the Royals' bullpen in the sixth inning. He did leave two baserunners on for reliever Aaron Crow to strand, but instead, Crow loaded the bases and then coughed up a decisive grand slam to Daniel Nava. That left Vargas as the losing pitcher in the Royals' 8-4 defeat.

Vargas was charged with five earned runs on four hits (including a three-run homer by Xander Bogaerts) and a walk over 5 1/3 innings. He tied a season high with eight strikeouts.

Heading into his next start with an 11-9 record and 3.41 ERA, Vargas will now face the Tigers on Saturday.
