R.A. Dickey struck out nine batters but allowed four runs in six innings to absorb a loss to the Reds on Friday.

The knuckleball was dancing as he missed a lot of bats but when the Reds made contact the ball flew far. The veteran tossed five innings of scoreless baseball before the train derailed in the sixth frame. He served up home runs to Adam Duvall, Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker to account for all four runs. The 42-year-old falls to 8-8 on the season with a 3.98 ERA in 24 starts. He will climb the mound for an interleague start against the Mariners next week.

Jake Junis gave up four runs in 2 1/3 innings out of the pen Friday against the Indians.

Junis had a nice start Monday against the A's, but with the Royals having an off day Thursday and another one next Monday, he was available out of the pen tonight. He's expected to get a start against the Rockies next week.

Whit Merrifield went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts Friday and is hitless in 15 at-bats the last three days.

Merrifield isn't going anywhere, but as nice of a job as he's done for the Royals this year, he's still not an ideal leadoff man; he's walked just 21 times in 452 plate appearances, giving him a .321 OBP to go along with his .284 average. Fortunately for him, the Royals lack any better alternatives. He'll probably snap out of this little slump soon enough.

Paul DeJong went 3-for-5 with a homer, two RBI and two runs scored in a wild 11-10 victory over the Pirates on Friday.

He cracked a solo shot off starter Trevor Williams in the third inning, then laced an RBI single in the sixth. The rookie shortstop, who just turned 24 years old this month, has been one of the best hitters in the majors since getting called up from Triple-A at the end of May. In fact he has been playing at an MVP level, slashing .305/.333/.583 with 19 home runs and 46 RBI in 69 games. He had an additional 13 home runs in 48 games in the minors earlier this year.
Aug 18 - 11:52 PM

Mitch Moreland delivered a pinch-hit go-ahead two-run single in Friday's 9-6 victory over the Yankees.

The Red Sox were down 6-3 after the Yankees plated four runs in the top of the seventh, but they fought right back with four runs of their own in the bottom of the frame. Moreland put them ahead for good with a single up the middle against Tommy Kahnle. The 31-year-old faded bigtime in July, but he's hitting .318 (14-for-44) with two homers and eight RBI this month.
Aug 18 - 11:50 PM

Dallas Keuchel blanked the A's for seven innings in Houston's 3-1 victory Friday.

Keuchel allowed just three hits and got 16 outs in the ground. He's allowed one run over 13 2/3 innings in his last two starts after struggling in his first three outings back from the disabled list. Keuchel is now 3-0 with a 0.83 ERA in three starts versus Oakland this year.
Aug 18 - 11:49 PM

Ken Giles retired all five batters he faced, striking out three of them, for his 24th save Friday against the A's.

Gules has been excellent of late, but the save tonight was just his second of August and sixth since the beginning of July. The Astros are the AL's winningest team, but they've given Giles just 27 save chances while going 75-47. Compare that to Alex Colome, who has 35 saves in 40 chances for a 60-64 Rays team.
Aug 18 - 11:47 PM

Sean Manaea surrendered three runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Astros.

It's still progress for Manaea, considering that he gave up 18 runs -- 13 earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in his previous three starts combined. He's still winless since July 16, and he's a hard guy to trust in mixed leagues right now.
