Ending a Rough Band

The Royals snapped a three- game losing streak and a 25- inning scoreless drought with a 4- 1 win in the series nature on Monday night. Kansas City entered six strong innings from starting pitcher Cole Ragans and three innings of hitless relief from their bullpen. The offense came alive, blasting three solo home runs.

” We are going to play hard until the last game of the season, that is what we did Monday night. Forget about what happed in the past, we just need to concentrate day- by- day. We got the palm on Monday and now we are going to concentrate on Tuesday.”

Salvador Perez

Pressing at the Plate

Royals bench trainer Paul Hoover noted that some of the hitters seemed to be pressing at the plate after back- to- back shutouts.

” When you are floundering, everybody tries to do a little bit more,” said Hoover, who served as director for the second straight game on Monday while Matt Quatraro was away for a particular matter.” It’s a tough game and when we are trying to do more than what we can, it becomes real difficult.”

Seth Lugo on the Mound

After Cole Ragans’ solid performance, the Royals hope for another strong outing from right- hander Seth Lugo on Tuesday. Lugo( 10- 2,2.42 ERA) aims to return to his early- season form. He hasn’t been as dominant in June, going 1- 1 with a4.56 ERA in four starts, but his last two outings have been promising.

Lugo came the American League’s first 10- game winner when he allowed two runs and six hits in six innings of a 7- 2 palm against the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 15. In his last launch, a 3- 2 win against the Oakland A’s, he gave up two runs and six hits in62/3 innings but did not factor in the decision.

With a wealth of experience against the Marlins from his time with the New York Mets, Lugo holds a 4- 1 record with a2.71 ERA and three saves in 33 appearances( six starts) against Miami.

Marlins ’ Defense and Pitching

The Royals nearly had a fourth home run on Monday night, but Marlins center fielder Jazz ChisholmJr. made an emotional catch against the wall off the club of Bobby WittJr. to end the third inning.

” He is just growing into a really solid outfielder, people forget that he is still fairly new to that position and he is only going to get better the more he plays out there.”

Skip Schumaker

Yonny Chirinos( 0- 0,3.60 ERA) is set to make his alternate launch for the Marlins since being recalled from Triple- A Jacksonville last Wednesday. In his team debut against theSt. Louis Cardinals, Chirinos allowed two runs and eight hits in five innings, striking out six without issuing a walk. The Cardinals plodded with runners in scoring position, going 1- for- 9 against him.
