Player Notes
Yordano Ventura was magnificent in Thursday's win over the Orioles, striking out 11 over six shutout innings.

Advice: The hard-throwing right-hander walked four and allowed just two hits on the afternoon. While he has been highly inconsistent this season, he continues to show flashes of the top of the rotation hurler that the Royals expect him to become. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he squares off against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Yordano Ventura tossed a fine start in Saturday's win over the Red Sox, surrendering one run on six hits over six innings.

Advice: Six hits, six strikeouts, six innings for Ventura. But not six runs. Just one of those, which came home on an RBI ground out by Travis Shaw in the sixth inning. Ventura had pitched so poorly through the All-Star Break that the Royals temporarily sent him down to Triple-A, but he's coming on strong now that he's returned to the rotation, having allowed just three runs in his last 19 innings. With a dropping 4.64 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, Ventura will try to keep this nice roll going in a home start against the Orioles on Thursday afternoon.
