Omar Infante hits first home run
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals infield Omar Infante provided some rare pop in a 4-2 win over the Astros, as he recorded his first extra-base hit of the season.

Infante opened the game with a solo home run in the first inning, and then added another RBI in the third inning on a fielder's choice to give the Royals a lead. He finished the game 1 for 3 with two RBI and two runs scored, while walking once.

Infante has hit for almost no power this season, but he has found ways to be productive nonetheless. He is hitting .297/.381/.378 through his first 10 games with the Royals.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Yordano Ventura picks up first win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura allowed his first run of the season Tuesday against the Astros, but also picked up his first career win in a 4-2 final.

Ventura allowed just a solo home run in seven innings of work, coming off the bat of Carlos Corporan in the fifth inning. He also had an unearned run come around to score in the first inning, but never trailed en route to his first win of the season.

Ventura struck out seven batters and walked three, while allowing just four hits in seven innings of work. He moves into his third start with an 0.69 ERA and 1-0 record. Ventura's next trip to the mound is set to come Sunday against the Twins.

Royals manager continues to back Mike Moustakas
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals manager Ned Yost continues to express confidence in third baseman Mike Moustakas, despite another slow start from the 25-year-old infielder. 

"His head was flying off the ball early in the season," Yost told MLB Network Radio Tuesday. "His approach is much better. He is seeing over five pitches per at-bat. 

"He's just pressing a little bit and trying to do too much out of the gate. He had a tremendous spring and wanted to start well."
