Carlos Correa singled in George Springer in the bottom of the 12th to give the Astros a 4-3 win over the Royals on Saturday.

Correa also had a sac fly in the contest. He's hit .290 with four homers and 11 RBI in 16 games this month, and he's very much in the driver's seat for starting at shortstop for the AL in the All-Star Game.

Lance McCullers allowed three runs in six innings and struck out nine against the Royals on Saturday.

All of the runs came on Hunter Dozier's homer in the fourth. McCullers allowed a total of four hits and walked two. He's turned in five straight quality starts.

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.
Jun 23 - 11:24 PM

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.
