Royals 3B Mike Moustakas struggles in series against Tigers
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas has had a terrific start to the 2015 season. But, he did struggle in the recent three-game series against the Tigers. 

"Moose" had just one hit in 12 at-bats, none for extra bases. He neither scored nor drove in a run for the Royals, as they lost two of the three games against their division rivals. On a positive note, Moustakas struck out only once in the series.

Despite the rough three games, Moustakas is still sporting a nifty .349/.378/.419 slash line over his last 10 games as he continues to rebound from a disappointing 2014 campaign.

Royals' Jeremy Guthrie rocked for six runs vs. Tigers Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie took a loss Sunday, giving up six earned runs on 11 hits in six innings while striking out one in his team's 6-4 defeat against the Tigers.

While fellow starter Anibal Sanchez took his bid for a perfect game into the sixth inning, Guthrie (1-2), who was announced as the starter for Sunday at the last minute, was hit hard in the loss, giving up a run in the second inning, three on a bases-loaded single in the fourth and two more on a Miguel Cabrera home run in the fifth.

"Today I thought he threw the ball OK," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "You got to kind of give credit to the opposition. That's a really good team. Some of those pitches, they just found a way to go down and get the ball to the outfield."

Guthrie, who has yet to record a quality start this season, owns a 6.52 ERA and 11:10 K:BB ratio in 29 innings. After having his scheduled suffled Sunday, he's now on track to face the Tigers again next weeked, this time in Detroit.
