Royals' Ben Zobrist breaks loose with two-tater Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals newcomer Ben Zobrist had a coming-out party of sorts Saturday in Toronto. After a rather quiet 1-for-8 start with his new team, he simply mashed.

Zobrist launched the festivities by launching a solo home run in the first inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth, then capped his wonderful day with a game-tying dinger in the eighth.

"For sure. It helps a ton," Zobrist said, per MLB.com. "The first couple of games, we don't win, so it's nice to be able to contribute to a win. I am just trying to do the little things and sometimes you get to do the bigger things."

His .470 slugging percentage is at its highest point since April 14.

Royals closer Greg Holland shaky, but snags save Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals closer Greg Holland heightened the tension in a dramatic game Saturday in Toronto, but in the end was able to send the crowd home unhappy.

Holland arrived with a one-run lead and allowed a walk to pinch-hitter Troy Tulowitzki and single to Chris Colabello after retiring the first batter. But Ben Revere and Josh Donaldson grounded out to secure his 23rd save.

It was his seventh straight appearance in which he has allowed at least one baserunner.

Royals SP Yordano Ventura weathers storm to gain victory
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Two rotten innings did not doom Royals starter Yordano Ventura in Toronto on Saturday. His supporting cast made sure of that.

Ventura was sailing along with a perfect game through 3 2/3 innings when four straight singles turned his 1-0 lead into a 2-1 deficit. He then sandwiched two outs around a walk in the fourth before successive homers by Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista made it 5-1.

That's when Mr. Hyde turned into Dr. Jekyll again. Ventura retired the last seven batters he faced while his team staged its comeback and he wound up with his second consecutive win. He finished having allowed five runs on six hits in seven innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

He is still saddled, however, with a rather ugly 4.98 ERA.

Scuffling Royals 3B Mike Moustakas sitting Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A slump and the versatility of newcomer Ben Zobrist have Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas out of the lineup Saturday afternoon in Toronto.

Moustakas, who will give way to Zobrist, has finally tailed off after spending most of the year above .300. He has just six hits in his last 41 at-bats to drop his average to .283, its lowest point of the season. He has not driven in a run since July 22.

Royals' Johnny Cueto gets no-decision in first start with new team
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals newcomer Johnny Cueto made his team debut on Friday. He went six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. He walked two and struck out seven, but did not factor in the decision as the Royals dropped the game 7-6 to the Blue Jays in extra innings.

Cueto was handed a 3-0 lead after the first inning, but he allowed a two-run double to Josh Donaldson in the third with the tying run coming across in the fourth. The Royals rallied back, and Cueto left the game leading 5-3. But the bullpen wasn't able to hold on the lead, leaving Cueto with the no-decision.

Pitching between the Reds and the Royals this year, Cueto went 3-1 with a 2.03 ERA in six July starts.
