News
Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie pulled out a win Friday night against the Giants.

Guthrie allowed two runs on four hits over five innings of work. He did not record any strikeouts or walks during the contest. Guthrie gave up plenty of contact during the start, but was helped out by Kansas City's strong defense. He was excellent over the first five frames, not giving up a run. 

Things began to unravel in the sixth inning. After a leadoff single, Guthrie allowed a run-scoring double against Michael Morse. Guthrie was pulled from the game at that point, but was charged with a second run after Morse would come around to score later in the frame. 

The Royals would hold on to the one-run lead over the last couple of innings, giving Guthrie the win.

News
Royals infielder Omar Infante, who is fresh off a signature Game 2 performance in the World Series, is taking increased doses of Toradol to fight off shoulder discomfort, the Kansas City Star reports.

"I feel better, because I'm taking strong pills," Infante said. "That’s helped me a lot. I feel it a little bit in B.P., and I still feel sore in the front of my shoulder. But yesterday I felt more comfortable."

Infante has a .229/.300/.343 line with one home run and three RBI over 10 postseason games. He may opt for offseason surgery to repair his nagging shoulder injury.
