Royals' Jason Hammel: Allows 11 hits in Friday's loss

Hammel (8-12) pitched six innings, allowing seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits and a walk while striking out three Indians en route to his second straight loss Friday.

The veteran allowed double-digit hits just once through his first 28 starts this year, but has now given up 10-plus hits in two consecutive outings. Hammel's 5.11 ERA is his worst since his rookie campaign in 2007 with Tampa Bay, and the 35-year-old's 12 losses are just one shy of his career high. He'll look to rebound when he toes the rubber Friday on the road vs. the White Sox.
