We didn't string many at-bats together. I guess the Royals don't need to worry about nursing their bullpen the way that the Orioles have to do. It was no accident that he gave up three runs on eight hits and two walks in just 4.1 innings. The Royals have allowed five runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last nine games. Karns, who received a no-decision, was remarkably efficient with his knuckle curve, drawing 17 of his 18 swinging strikes on the pitch.

A Pirates 4, Diamondbacks 3: Trevor Williams pitched five strong innings as visiting Pittsburgh snapped a six-game losing streak. The Orioles have also lost nine of 11 at Kauffman Stadium. Mike Napoli, whose three-run homer ended a 5-2 win over San Diego on Thursday night, then hit a deep sacrifice fly to tie the game.

Asher gave up a leadoff home run to Royals designated hitter Brandon Moss to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning.

Baltimore's Chris Davis homered off Seth Maness (1-0) to tie it 3-3 in the sixth, but Brandon Moss went deep off Alec Asher (1-2) to put Kansas City back ahead later that inning.

Eric Hosmer's hitting surge is helping the Kansas City Royals pile up some wins.

A Tigers 4, Angels 3: J.D. Martinez hit his second homer of the game in the ninth to lift Detroit over host Los Angeles.

Bundy continues to churn out quality starts, making it 7-for-7 this season after giving up three runs on six hits over six innings in a win over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Pena did better than that, swatting two solo homers off Karns - while swinging a pink bat - for the first multihomer game of his big league career.

Mesut Ozil reveals what Arsenal are fighting for following Stoke City victory
That left Arsenal in fifth place in the Premier League, three points behind Manchester City in the slot directly above. However, he insisted that his team have to be mentally prepared for their remaining three games of the season.

Heading into this game, backup catcher Francisco Pena, who's only on the roster because of the injury to Welington Castillo, had a total of 54 Major League Baseball plate appearances to his credit. He launched a 2-2 knuckle curve from Karns into the Royals bullpen beyond the left-field fence in the third in his first at-bat. As promised, Pena made his way to the dugout TV camera well after each homer. I wasn't trying to. "He's a really good pitcher. To be honest, I wasn't calling it like it happened".

A Brewers 11, Mets 4: Travis Shaw capped an eight-run fifth inning with a three-run homer to help Milwaukee beat visiting NY.

"I just think he's going to get a little crisper with his stuff", Showalter said. I'm seeing the ball better, definitely. His track record shows that will happen. Exactly one of these went for a home run.

Bundy came out after six innings and 112 pitches.

Merrifield flied out to right to end the inning, but not before fouling off eight pitches, including five straight with a full count.

"As the game wore on, I felt like I tried to do too much", Tillman said. "I've kind of had that problem my whole career".

This wasn't the outing that the Mets hoped to get out of Harvey after a drama-filled week.
