KC Headlines: NBA Draft, Royals Lose, Game of Thrones

ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Twins 3, Royals 1

The Royals did not score four runs therefore they lost.

Salvador Perez blasted his fourth home run of the year for KC’s only run in an effort to waste Jeremy Guthrie’s solid start. They had a chance to tie they game in the ninth but two hard hit balls by Perez and Tejada were caught by Trevor Plouffe and Justin Morneau to prevent any damage.

Detroit lost again so KC (36-40) remains 5.5 games back of first place.

Royals Nugget: Northwest Arkansas pitcher Brooks Pounders threw a no-hitter last night in the Naturals 11-0 win over Midland. Pounders struck out six, walked none, and hit a batter. It was the first no-hitter by a single pitcher in Naturals history – all the other no-hitters had been achieved by committee.
