Kozma quickly makes amends

  • BOSTON — Pete Kozma slept just fine on Wednesday night after his two errors helped open the door to the Boston Red Sox's rout of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series. Then Kozma took a nap on Thursday afternoon for good measure. He may also be asleep right now.In less than 24 hours, Kozma went from goat to hero. Inserted as a pinch runner in the seventh inning, he stole third base and came around to score the tying run in Game 2 as the Cardinals went on to a 4-2 win to tie the series at a game apiece. He made important defensive plays after remaining in the game at shortstop, proving that his errors were indeed uncharacteristic of one of the National League's best at the position. After the Cardinals' victory, they blasted LMFAO in the vistiors' clubhouse at Fenway Park. Kozma took his time showering and getting dressed, and blasted ZZZZZ."Yesterday's behind us," he said when asked how the quick turn of events involving him felt. "We looked at our mistakes, learned from them, and moved on to today." How about that slick barehanded play on Stephen Drew's ground ball that bounced off pitcher Carlos Martinez's glove? It kept the Red Sox from bringing the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the seventh."It's not really a boost or anything," Kozma said. "Yesterday, I thought it was like a fluke. Like I said, we put our mistakes behind us and learned from them."But you've got to admit, that kind of thing, getting the opportunity for redemption so qu[......]

    First-place Royals? First-place Royals; KC jumps Tigers

  • DETROIT — It's been over a decade since the Kansas City Royals were in first place this late in the season, and try as he might, manager Ned Yost couldn't totally downplay the achievement.He just wants it kept in perspective. MORE: Spector reviews Tigers' TV team"It's nice. We've got a lot of games to play. We don't get all geeked up," Yost said. "It's better than the alternative, trust me." Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas homered as part of a seven-run second inning, and the Royals displaced the Detroit Tigers atop the AL Central on Tuesday night with an 11-4 victory, their ninth in a row.Kansas City is in first place this late in the season for the first time since 2003, according to STATS. The Royals were leading the division in late August that year, only to finish third at 83-79. They have not made the postseason since winning the World Series in 1985."A lot of games left, so it really doesn't matter, but to say you're first place, it feels pretty good," designated hitter Billy Butler said. "Being in first place any time is good - even if it's after the first game."Gordon and Moustakas hit two-run shots off Max Scherzer, and Kansas City has won the first two games of this four-game series emphatically. The Royals, who trailed the Tigers by seven games after a May 20 loss, now lead Detroit by a half-game.Scherzer (8-3) yielded a career high-tying 10 runs in four-plus innings. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner allowed the first eight batters of[......]

    Brewers get winning hit from improbable source: ace Yovani Gallardo

  • MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo couldn't have picked a better spot for the first pinch hit of his career.Gallardo delivered a double that drove home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning Tuesday night, foiling Baltimore's strategy and sending the Brewers to a 7-6 victory over the Orioles. "We work on it for that type of situation," said Gallardo, who stepped to the plate with a career batting average of .202 with 12 home runs and 41 RBIs over eight seasons. "That's one of the reasons we're out there hitting every day before the position players, because you never know. Whether it be as simple as getting a bunt down or getting a guy over to third base or whatever."With the pitcher's spot on deck and knowing Milwaukee was out of position players, the Orioles intentionally walked power-hitting Mark Reynolds with two outs and no one on base in the 10th. Reynolds had hit his 12th homer earlier. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke then sent up Gallardo — a starting pitcher who was 1 for 14 this season — to bat for reliever Francisco Rodriguez (2-1).Gallardo drove a 2-0 pitch from T.J. McFarland (0-1) to deep center field to win it."I was just trying to get a ball out over the plate," said Gallardo, hitless in four previous pinch-hit appearances. "When he fell down 2-0, just try and put a good swing on it. Put the ball in play and see what happens. The pitch wasn't where he wanted it, I'm pretty sure, but I was able to make good contact."Orioles[......]
