Vargas pitches Royals past Astros 7-5

Vargas pitches Royals past Astros 7-5”

The Rock Falls native gave up seven runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings of work in his second career Major League Baseball start, but got a no decision after the Royals rallied for a 9-7 win.

Hammel halted a four-start winless streak by holding Cleveland to three runs and five hits over 6 2/3 innings on Saturday. Khris Davis drove in two runs, Adam Rosales hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the fifth and Jed Lowrie added two hits. The over is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Kansas City and the over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings. Moustakas walked to load the bases, and two scored on Cuthbert's single to right.

The Royals' only early baserunner was rookie Jorge Bonifacio, who walked with one out in the first. While it is now a guarantee that the prolific left-hander will not be making his next scheduled start, no timetable for his eventual return has been set either. Vargas has been pretty great for the Royals, allowing just 16 earned runs over 69.1 innings this season. He struck out eight and walked two.

Nori Aoki opened the frame with a single, Josh Reddick single to put runners on the corners. Hammel made a move to throw to first and the ball slipped out of his glove.

Royals: C Salvador Perez was removed after eight innings after his left thumb was bent back while catching a sinker from Scott Alexander when Beltran struck out.

YANKEES 9, RED SOX 1 Gary Sanchez homered twice to drive in five runs and the New York Yankees pounded David Price again in a 9-1 victory Thursday, one night after the Boston Red Sox ace had an angry exchange with a reporter. Date with history foiled, but it was a brilliant outing nonetheless. With such a sizable lead in the division, the Astros will probably be all right without Keuchel for a week-plus. Torres, who was hitting.327 in 53 games with Triple-A Omaha, went 2 for 4 with a double and RBI in his big league debut.

The Astros, who own the best record in the majors (42-18), have lost three straight games on two occasions this season.

Mike Minor (3-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the Royals.

Players have one routine if they're going to start a game - pregame meal, workouts, etc. - and another if they're coming off the bench.

Best run of the year.
