Rustin Dodd: Bonifacio looks promising

KC Star Royals beat writer Rustin Dodd talks about Jorge Bonifacio's impressive performance, the team's pitching struggles and why Jason Hammel is critical for the Royals.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Few players can scrape the sky with home runs like Mike Moustakas. After hitting what was then the second-highest homer (129-foot apex) of his career last week, Moustakas set a career-high apex in Tuesday's win.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas homered for the 11th time and is already halfway to his career high of 22 from 2015. Though the Moustakas homer at Yankee Stadium was his third already off a lefty, he's really struggled against lefties this season. Of greater concern are the drops in walk and contact rate. If Moustakas doesn't improve there he's unlikely to match his strong 2015 numbers so be careful in investing.


Duffy beats Yanks for 2nd time in week as Royals win 6-2

Danny Duffy beat the Yankees for the second time in a week and rookie Jorge Bonifacio capped a three-run, seventh-inning rally with a go-ahead, two-run homer that led the Kansas City Royals over New York 6-2 on Tuesday night.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees lost to the Royals, 6-2. Kansas City couldn't solve Yankees rookie starter Jordan Montgomery, as they scored their only run on a Lorenzo Cain solo shot in Montgomery's 6 2/3 innings. But then against Yankee relievers Adam Warren, Jonathan Holder and Chasen Shreve, Kansas City was even more homer happy. Each of the Yankee relievers gave up a homers, as Jorge Bonifacio, Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas all went deep.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Jorge Bonifacio just hit an opposite two-run field homer off Adam Warren to make it 3-2 Royals in the 7th.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Royals C Salvador Pérez went deep three times on Sunday, homering in both games of Kansas City's doubleheader vs. the Twins. He joined Bill Pecota (1989) as the only Royals players with three home runs in a doubleheader.
