Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas collected three hits during Wednesday night's 7-1 victory over the Reds. 

Moustakas recorded one double and two singles in the game. His double marked his 10th of the season. He went 3 for 4 in the game. 

This is his second game in a row going 3 for 4 in the Reds. So far in the series, Moustakas is 6 for 8 with three doubles and two RBI. He's hitting .333/.387/.490 for the season. 

"I quite frankly and honestly can't say I have seen a player in the big leagues make as big an improvement as Mike Moustakas has made from last year to this year," Royals manager Ned Yost said, via MLB.com. "And it's not even close. It's not even close. You see good players that come in, but to have to completely reinvent himself and change his game offensively, I've never seen it before."

News
Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura (3-3) tossed seven scoreless innings Tuesday to defeat the Reds.

Ventura allowed four hits and fan six in the strong outing.

"He went seven innings and got a lot of ground balls," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "It shows what a plus fastball, plus changeup can do. When he changes speeds like that you have to gear up for the velocity and then adjust when he changes speeds. He did a good job."

The performance ended a mini slump for Ventura, who had allowed 14 runs in 18 1/3 innings over his last three starts.

"This is the best I've felt this season," Ventura said with teammate Christian Colon acting as his interpreter. "All my pitches were sharp. I was just focused on having my pitches down in the zone and having quality pitches."

Ventura's next start is set for Monday in New York against the Yankees.

News
Ryan Madson believed the odds on his return to a big-league mound was one or two percent. So what he has accomplished this season is 100 percent amazing.

Tommy John surgery and failures that followed forced Madson into an early retirement. He had not pitched since 2011. The former lights-out closer for Philadelphia was done.

Madson was frustrated at not being able to dictate the terms of his departure from baseball, but he was content spending more time with his family than he had ever been able to do as a major league pitcher.

"There was always a small buzz that I could come back," Madson told the New York Times. "But I knew it was so far away. So much work had to be done. Even guys that retire and stay retired, they have that 1 or 2 percent that they want to go back and play. I don't know how many years that lasts. But I think I was in that category. I thought I was truly done."

Not so fast. Madson began teaching baseball fundamentals to young players, including a standout prospect near his California home. That led to a chance meeting with current Royals special assistant Jim Fregosi Jr., who once scouted Madson. One thing led to another and Madson earned a tryout with Kansas City. A strong spring training resulted in him snagging a spot in their bullpen.

He has taken his opportunity and run with it. In 17 appearances he boasts a 1.83 ERA, the best of his 10-year career. He has just four walks and 20 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings. And he has the admiration of his teammates.

"It really is remarkable what he's doing right now," said fellow pitcher Chris Young. "Granted, I never played with him, but I've played against him, and his stuff is as good as I've ever seen."

News
Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie did not allow an earned run during Wednesday evening's 7-1 victory over the Reds. 

Guthrie went six innings, struck out three batters and walked two. He now holds a 4.75 ERA for the season. 

This was the first game of the season that Guthrie did not allow an earned run. He struggled early on this year but only gave up a total of four earned runs in his previous two games. He hasn't had a game where he's struck out more than three batters this year, however. 

"I didn't have the same type of command I did a couple of starts ago," Guthrie said, per MLB.com. "But my location has been a bit better. I've been getting ahead of guys and making good pitches." 

Guthrie's next start is projected for May 26 against the Yankees.

Royals right-hander Jason Vargas, recovering from an elbow injury, will throw a bullpen session on Tuesday. He'll follow that up with a simulated game on Friday. If all goes well after that, he'll return to the rotation sometime next week, according to the Kansas City Star.

Vargas has been on the shelf since May 8 with a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. He's made five starts for the Royals this season and owns a 3-1 record with a 5.26 ERA.
