Post by: huangjian123 on 26 March 2019, 05:35
CHICAGO (AP) — In a dim season for the last-place Kansas City Royals http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-omar-vizquel-jersey (http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-omar-vizquel-jersey) , rookie Brad Keller has been one of the few bright spots.Keller pitched five solid innings, Alex Gordon homered and Jorge Bonifacio had a go-ahead RBI single in the decisive sixth inning for the Royals, who rallied past the Chicago White Sox 3-1 on Saturday night.Nicky Delmonico homered in the second inning off Keller (6-5), driving a changeup over the right-center field fence. That was the only blemish against the 6-foot-5 right-hander, who allowed seven hits, struck out five and walked none.“This was a battle game, honestly,” said the 23-year-old Keller, who has the only winning record on the staff. “I felt like I made my pitches. It was one of the games where you needed to keep the team in it.”The Royals won for the third time in their past nine games. The White Sox had their win streak stopped at three.Chicago had five hits combined in the fourth and fifth innings, but Keller got out of the jams.“He did a great job of really limiting the damage,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He made huge pitches when he needed to.”Dylan Covey (4-10) returned to the form he had displayed the first 2½ months of the season but remained winless in five starts since July 21. The right-hander allowed two runs on four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings.Covey entered the game with a 1-8 record and 8.94 ERA in his last 10 starts. He was 0-5 with a 6.34 ERA versus Kansas City in his career.“Overall Jason Kipnis Jersey (http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-jason-kipnis-jersey) , I threw the ball pretty well,” Covey said. “Just the mistake to Gordon, and then even the pitch to Bonifacio was a pretty good pitch.”After Whit Merrifield opened the game with a single, Covey didn’t allow another hit until Gordon homered with one out in the sixth. One out later, Lucas Duda doubled and scored on Bonifacio’s hit to left field.Alcides Escobar provided an insurance run with a two-out RBI single off Juan Minaya in the ninth.“Keller did a good job of keeping us in the game,” Gordon said. “All we needed was a run to get us over.”Five Royals relievers combined for four scoreless innings. The last, Wily Peralta, worked a perfect ninth for his eighth save in as many tries.HEAVEN HELP THEMSister Mary Jo Sobieck, of Marian Catholic High School in suburban Chicago Heights, dropped jaws with an impressive ceremonial first pitch.“I said, ‘Can you play for us?'” White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. “She said Lonnie Chisenhall Jersey (http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-lonnie-chisenhall-jersey) , ‘Sure.’ Seems to be a really nice lady.”NEWBIE IN THE HOUSEKansas City promoted RHP Jake Newberry from Omaha and optioned RHP Jason Adam to the Triple-A club. The 37th-round draft pick from 2012 is in line to become the lowest-round selection to debut for the team since OF Jarrod Dyson (50th, 2010).RHP Blaine Boyer cleared waivers and became a free agent. The veteran has a 12.05 ERA in 21 relief appearances.TRAINER’S ROOMRoyals: OF Brett Phillips (lower-body fatigue) returned to the lineup after a two-game absence.White Sox: OF Avisail Garcia will try to work through a balky right knee that’s likely to require surgery after the season. “He’s just going to have to deal with it and continue to move forward. And I think he’ll be able to,” Renteria said. … RHP Nate Jones (strained right arm) “is throwing the ball well and feeling good,” Renteria said, but there still is no timetable for his return. His last appearance came on June 12.UP NEXTRoyals: Rookie RHP Heath Fillmyer (1-1, 3.61 ERA) will close out the series Sunday.White Sox: RHP Reynaldo Lopez (4-9, 4.40) will take a 1.93 ERA in his last two home starts into the finale. He didn’t figure in either decision. MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — He might look more like a fullback than a baseball player. His resume might read more “suspect” than “prospect.” But Willians Astudillo has become something of a folk hero in Minnesota, and on Sunday he rewarded Twins fans for their support.Astudillo hit a two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning that gave Minnesota a 3-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals.Max Kepler doubled off Jason Hammel (2-13) with two outs in the Twins ninth. Astudillo then hit a drive deep to left field for his third home run of the season, touching off a raucous celebration at home plate.The 5-foot-9 Astudillo is conservatively listed at 225 pounds, but he’s a better athlete than his frame might suggest. In two stints with the Twins this year http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-larry-doby-jersey (http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-larry-doby-jersey) , the 26-year-old rookie has started games at catcher, second base and third base. He played left field and center field in his major league debut at Wrigley Field. And he’s even pitched an inning.But he’s most known for his aggressive, contact-heavy approach at the plate. In 38 plate appearances with the Twins he’s yet to draw a walk, and he’s only struck out twice. It’s a pattern that he’s followed throughout his minor league career, which has already spanned four franchises.“I just go out there with a plan to make good contact, a good pitch, specifically a good pitch,” said Astudillo, who took a pitch in the dirt before jumping on a hanging slider from Hammel.Twins manager Paul Molitor admitted he considered using catcher Mitch Garver to pinch-hit for Astudillo.“I’m glad I paused,” Molitor said, “because it worked out pretty good.”“He’s probably going to put it in play Bob Feller Jersey (http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-bob-feller-jersey) , and you hope he finds a hole. And as it turns out he hits it over the fence, so that was a bonus,” he said.Trevor Hildenberger (4-3) got two outs to pick up the win.Adalberto Mondesi homered for the Royals, who were held to three hits on the day. The closest they came to a rally was in the third inning, when an error and two walks filled the bases. But Hunter Dozier grounded out to end the threat.“We had the bases loaded looking for a clutch hit, and we couldn’t get it,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Just not a lot going on offensively for us out there.”Royals starter Ian Kennedy made his first appearance after missing two months with a strained oblique. He ended up throwing 93 pitches over six innings, allowing one run on four hits with three walks and six strikeouts.Minnesota starter Chase De Jong made his Twins debut with four scoreless innings, walking four and striking out five. He arrived from Seattle in a trade for reliever Zach Duke on July 30.Zack Littell followed De Jong for the Twins and gave up Mondesi’s tying home run in the sixth but was otherwise sharp, allowing just two runners in 3 1/3 innings.FORTNITE PARTYAn estimated 300 fans arrived more than three hours before the first pitch to watch Twins reliever Trevor May show off his skills against some elite competition. But May wasn’t on the mound. He was playing the video game Fortnite, with the action being streamed on the Target Field video board.May Satchel Paige Jersey (http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-satchel-paige-jersey) , an avid video game player who is a brand ambassador for a professional e-sports organization, squared off against three pro gamers in a Fortnite streaming party. Garver served as the emcee, interviewing the players and answering fans’ questions during the one-hour event.TRAINER’S ROOMTwins: 3B Miguel Sano missed his fourth straight game with a lower left leg contusion.UP NEXTRoyals: RHP Jakob Junis (8-12, 4.32 ERA) takes the mound on Monday night as the Royals open a three-game series at home against the White Sox. Lucas Giolito (10-10, 5.85) will start for Chicago.Twins: RHP Kyle Gibson (7-12, 3.74) will start for the Twins as they host the Yankees for the opener of a three-game series on Monday. New York will counter with LHP J.A. Happ (14-6, 3.90).
