Kendrys Moralres powers Royals to victory with four hits, four RBI
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

In a game where his team scored a more than two touchdowns-worth of runs, Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales had a terrific night at the plate. Morales went 4 for 5 with a double, four RBI and three runs scored in the 15-7 pounding of the Tigers.

The veteran slugger got the Royals on the board in the first inning, when he ripped a two-run single. He added a two-run double in the seventh and was a key component to the big win on Thursday.

Morales has been rolling lately, batting .441 with three doubles, four homers and 13 RBI over his last nine games.

Royals SP Edinson Volquez suffers rare poor start on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Royals starter Edinson Volquez scuffled in his latest outing against the Tigers on Thursday. The right-hander allowed six runs on eight hits over three innings, snapping a string of nine straight starts with at least six innings pitched.

Volquez, whose ERA rose to 3.53, have up three runs in the very first inning, including a solo home run to Anthony Gose to lead off the game. But the Royals rallied back to give Volquez a 6-2 lead after the second inning.

He has given up more than three runs just three times in his last 12 starts. The six runs allowed Thursday are the most he's given up since June 2014.

Royals SP Yordano Ventura remains on roll by stifling Tigers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The new-and-improved Yordano Ventura continued to pitch like an ace Wednesday for the Royals.

Ventura hurled seven innings against visiting Detroit and yielded only one run on five hits. Most indicative of his dominance was his one walk and 11 strikeouts. The lone run scored on a groundout in the sixth.

The right-hander turned on the switch in early August and it has remained on. He has given up only four runs on 20 hits in his last 32 innings with a whopping 43 strikeouts. His 4.24 ERA is at its lowest point since April 12.
