Jeremy Guthrie couldn't make it out of the fourth inning in Wednesday's World Series Game 7, exiting after allowing three runs over 3 1/3 innings in the loss.
Guthrie loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the second inning, prompting manager Ned Yost to get a reliever up, but after Guthrie escaped with just a couple of sacrifice flies Yost left him in. That was until the fourth, when he left runners on first and third with one out. Reliever Kelvin Herrera allowed an RBI single to the next batter, charging Guthrie with a third run and saddling him with the loss. He didn't walk a batter while striking out three. Guthrie will be back in KC next season for the final year of his three-year contract signed after the 2012 season. Wed, Oct 29, 2014 11:30:00 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost said that Jeremy Guthrie will start a potential Game 7 against the Giants.

For a deciding game, it would be all hands on deck beyond that. Guthrie allowed two runs over five-plus innings in Game 3 last Friday.

Jeremy Guthrie pitched well as the Royals defeated the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday, allowing a pair of runs on four hits in his five-plus innings of work.

The 35-year-old right-hander cruised through the first five frames with relative ease, leading Royals skipper Ned Yost to leave him on the hill to begin the sixth inning. He was quickly yanked though after consecutive hits to start the inning, both of which would come around to score after he departed. Guthrie didn’t walk a batter or tally a strikeout in his first career postseason victory. The Royals will now give the ball to Jason Vargas on Saturday as they look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the World Series against the Giants on Friday.

He'll square off against Tim Hudson in San Francisco. Guthrie allowed one run over five innings in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles last Tuesday. Jason Vargas will follow him in Game 4. Guthrie is now lined up for a potential Game 7.

Jeremy Guthrie lasted just five innings but yielded only one run as the Royals beat the Orioles 2-1 Tuesday to take a 3-0 ALCS lead.

Guthrie wasn't particularly sharp, as the Orioles stung a bunch of balls and ran the veteran right-hander's pitch count up to 94 through five frames. He was able to hold them to one run on three hits and two walks, though, and the offense did just enough while the bullpen shut it down. The Royals have won all seven of their games this postseason, including six of them either by one run or when they took the lead in the ninth inning or beyond. They'll turn to Jason Vargas on Wednesday as they look to close things out.

Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles on Tuesday.

Monday's game was postponed to Tuesday due to rain, but there won't be any changes with the scheduled pitching matchup of Guthrie and Wei-Yin Chen. This will be Guthrie's first career postseason appearance.

Game 3 of the ALCS between the Orioles and Royals has been postponed.

It's expected to rain all night in Kansas City, so MLB understandably went ahead and canceled the game rather than wait out the situation. Game 3 will now be played Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. ET. Games 4 and 5 (if necessary) will follow on Wednesday and Thursday, both at 4:07 p.m. ET.

Royals manage Ned Yost announced Saturday that Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles.

That means that Jason Vargas will get the call in Game 4, with Danny Duffy continuing to be available out of the bullpen. It will be the first career postseason start for the 35-year-old right-hander who surrendered just one earned run over his last three starts in the regular season.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Jeremy Guthrie is likely to start Game 4 of the ALDS.

Guthrie is getting the call over Danny Duffy, who Yost evidently feels is a better fit in the bullpen. Duffy did have health issues down the stretch, which is surely what Yost is basing his decision on. Guthrie did allow just one earned run over his last three starts.

Jeremy Guthrie hurled seven shutout innings in a win against the White Sox on Friday, helping the Royals clinch at least a Wild Card.

The Royals are just a game behind the Tigers in the AL Central with two games to play as well, so there's still plenty of intrigue with the end of the season in plain view. Guthrie held the White Sox to just four hits and a walk while fanning six. He ends the regular season at 13-11 with a 4.13 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP, and a 124/49 K/BB ratio.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed two runs -- one earned -- over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Guthrie walked two while giving up five hits, including a solo home run by Ian Kinsler for the only earned run against him. The win moved his record to 12-11, the second straight year Guthrie has won at least 12 games. He'll carry a 4.28 ERA into his last start of the season, Friday against the White Sox.

Jeremy Guthrie allowed just one (unearned) run over eight innings in Saturday's 7-1 defeat of Boston.

Guthrie cruised, limiting the Red Sox to three hits and a walk over his eight impressive frames. He struck out two. It was a nice bounceback outing for the veteran right-hander, who gave up eight runs -- six earned -- in 2 2/3 innings Monday night in Detroit. Guthrie will try to keep it going next week in a rematch with the Tigers at home.

Jeremy Guthrie limited the Rangers to one run over seven innings but settled for a no-decision on Tuesday.

Guthrie scattered eight hits, relying on three double plays to stifle any potential rallies. Unfortunately for the right-hander, he was matched pitch for pitch by Rangers starter Derek Holland, depriving him of his 11th win. Guthrie has a tougher task on deck when he faces the Tigers in Detroit on Monday.

Jeremy Guthrie got a no-decision after allowing five runs in six innings as the Royals lost to the Twins in 10 innings on Thursday.

The Twins racked up the hits against Guthrie with nine of them along with two walks over the right-hander's six frames. Guthrie also struck out five. He has a 4.43 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 112/44 K/BB ratio, which he'll take into Tuesday's home start against the Rangers.

Jeremy Guthrie fired eight innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Royals' 6-3 defeat of the Rangers.

Guthrie carved his way easily through the Texas lineup, yielding only five hits and a walk over his eight impressive frames. He's now 10-10 with a 4.32 ERA and 1.31 WHIP this season for the Royals, who have moved to 16 games above .500. Guthrie gets the Twins at home next.
