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.
Oct 13 - 4:55 PM

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.
Oct 13 - 4:32 PM

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.
Oct 11 - 2:45 PM

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.
Sep 26 - 11:05 PM

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.
Sep 21 - 6:32 PM

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.
Sep 13 - 10:04 PM

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.
Sep 2 - 11:11 PM

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.
Aug 29 - 12:07 AM

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.
Aug 23 - 11:08 PM

Jeremy Guthrie earned his ninth win of the season after allowing four runs in seven innings while the Royals bashed the Twins in a 12-6 victory on Sunday.

Guthrie has struggled since the start of July, including his beating against the Athletics in his last start, so Sunday's effort was a nice rebound. The right-hander allowed five hits and walked two while striking out seven. He'll take a 4.48 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and a 105/41 K/BB ratio into Saturday's road start against the Rangers.
Aug 17 - 6:41 PM

Jeremy Guthrie surrendered 11 hits and six runs -- four earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the A's on Tuesday.

Guthrie got knocked around, but it was mostly death by papercuts -- only one of the 11 hits given up went for extra bases. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the right-hander, who fell to 8-10. Guthrie will carry a 4.45 ERA into Sunday's matchup with the Twins at Target Field.
Aug 12 - 11:08 PM

Jeremy Guthrie yielded two runs in a complete-game victory against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

Guthrie, who retired the last 19 batters he faced, declined to issue a free pass and struck out four batters. He was absolutely battered in July, going 1-3 with a 10.07 ERA in four starts, but allowed three hits over six innings Friday against the A's in his first start of August and put together his second consecutive quality outing this evening. The right-hander is safe to use in AL-only formats again. Guthrie (8-9, 4.35 ERA) gets the A's again next week.
