Player Notes
Edinson Volquez allowed two runs in six innings before rain ended his day against the Cardinals, in a game that was called 3-2 in the Royals' favor in the middle of the sixth.

Advice: Volquez maneuvered through six innings, but the tarp came on in the middle of the sixth to end his night, indeed to end the game. The only runs on his line came via a Yadier Molina RBI ground out in the second inning and a shallow single to center by Matt Carpenter in the sixth. Volquez allowed just four hits in the outing, striking out one and walking three. He's given up three runs or fewer earned runs in eight of his nine starts (in the lone outlier, he surrendered four) and holds a 2.77 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 49/20 K/BB ratio over 55 1/3 innings. He'll try to keep up this consistent roll when he faces the Cubs in a road start next time out.

Edinson Volquez pitched a stellar game against the Yankees on Sunday, allowing just three hits over seven innings in the 6-0 win.

Advice: Volquez struck out five without allowing a run as the Royals took the rubber game of the weekend series between division leaders. On a micro level, Volquez snapped a four-game win-less streak with the victory, evening his record at 3-3. His numbers are solid all the way around, as he holds a 2.74 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 38/17 K/BB ratio over 49 1/3 innings. The walks are a bit high for our liking, but we'll live with the occasional free pass if he's able to limit the hits. Volquez will face the Cardinals at home in his next start, in what should be a stellar series.
