Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura strikes out seven in losing effort
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura allowed four runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Kansas City's 6-1 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.

Ventura had issues in the first inning when he issued two consecutive walks to open the game. Then, Jhonny Peralta singled to bring home a run before Matt Adams doubled to center to plate another.

"He was just missing. There were some pitches I thought could go either way that resulted in walks," manager Ned Yost said to MLB.com. "The one bad pitch he made all day was he pulled a changeup to [Matt] Carpenter up and in, and he hit it down the line [for a homer].

"After that first inning, I thought he threw the ball awesome."

Ventura had more problems in the sixth when he allowed a two-run homer to Matt Carpenter. Ventura, now 3-4, moved his ERA to 4.64 in 54 1/3 innings of work.

He will look to get back on track on Saturday against the Cubs.
