Ian Kennedy held the Astros to two runs and four hits over seven innings on Saturday.

Kennedy left with a one-run lead, but he remained winless since April 7 after the tying run scored in the ninth. Since getting torched for eight runs on June 1, Kennedy has allowed a total of eight runs in four starts, lowering his ERA from 6.08 to 5.09. He'll get the Mariners next.

Brandon Maurer gave up a one-run lead in the ninth to take a blown save Saturday against the Astros.

It was a surprise that the Royals threw Maurer a save opportunity already and less of one that it didn't work out well. For what it's worth, neither hit against him was hit all that hard; there was a grounder through the right side and then a flare to shallow center. The tying run scored on a sac fly, and the best-hit ball of the inning ending the frame; Brian McCann laced a ball into the shift that was played in shallow right field and turned into an out. Maurer is a candidate to end up as a the Royals' closer, but we wouldn't expect him to get another save chance right away.

Whit Merrifield went 0-for-5 and struck out four times Saturday against the Astros.

Merrifield played center field tonight after Alcides Escobar started there Friday. It doesn't much matter where Merrifield plays; he'll be in the lineup somewhere every day. Still, as the Royals' one good middle infielder and arguably the team's most valuable player over the last 12 months, he might appreciate having one position all to himself.

Hunter Dozier hit a three-run homer Saturday against the Astros.

It accounted for all of the scoring the Royals did in 12 innings tonight. Dozier has four homers and six doubles in 123 at-bats, but it comes with a .228 average and a 39/3 K/BB ratio. He might head back to Triple-A temporarily now that the Royals have Lucas Duda back.

Jason Vargas will be placed on the disabled list by the Mets after suffering a strained calf during conditioning drills.

Vargas was slated to start Sunday. The Mets are calling up Chris Flexen to replace Vargas on the roster, but they didn't announce who would start Sunday.

Matt Kemp delivered a pinch-hit grand slam Saturday in the Dodgers' 8-3 defeat of the Mets.

Kemp's homer off Robert Gsellman gave the Dodgers some insurance with a 4-2 lead in the eighth. It was his eighth career grand slam, his third ever pinch-hit homer (he had a lifetime .157/.203/.271 line in 70 at-bats as a pinch-hitter) and his 13th homer of 2018.
Jun 23 - 10:34 PM

Nelson Cruz went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

This wasn't quite the offensive explosion that we saw from Cruz on Friday, when he clubbed two homers and drove in seven runs in what finished as a four-hit performance, but it was a rock-solid game for the veteran slugger regardless. For the season as a whole, Cruz is rocking a .274/.359/.570 triple-slash with 20 home runs and 48 RBI in 64 games. He's collected multiple hits in each of his last three games. Anybody who sold low on him after his quiet start to the campaign could probably use a hug right now.
Jun 23 - 10:33 PM

After taking over for Clayton Kershaw, Caleb Ferguson pitched four scoreless innings for his first career win Saturday against the Mets.

Ferguson struck out six while working the fourth through seventh innings tonight. It was his relief appearance after he went 0-1 with a 7.59 ERA in three starts. He might get sent down now, but he could be a candidate to make more starts in the second half of the year.
