    Royals, Tigers both look to get on a winning track

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There is a sense of urgency for the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals, who square off in a three-game series beginning Monday at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals possess the worst record in the American League, 21-28, after getting blown out 10-1 Sunday in Cleveland. The Tigers dropped a 7-3 decision to the White Sox at Chicago on Sunday and fell to 23-27. They are just above the Royals in the AL Central standings.

He hadn’t won since Aug. 25 — a stretch of 16 starts — when he defeated the Marlins as a member of the Kansas City Royals. “I felt like I won my first game in the big leagues,” a smiling Volquez said after the Marlins’ 4-1 victory over the Phillies, which gave

    Basebrawl! Harper, Strickland punch away, Nats-Giants fight

    SAN FRANCISCO — Nationals slugger Bryce Harper and San Francisco reliever Hunter Strickland both landed punches to the head during a wild brawl that erupted Monday after a hit by pitch. Harper was hit in the right hip by Strickland’s 98 mph fastball in the eighth inning with Washington ahead 2-0. Harper pointed the bat toward Strickland, charged the mound and fired his batting helmet wide of the pitcher. They started to swing away and they each connected as the benches and bullpens emptied. At least two Giants players forcefully dragged Strickland from the middle of the brawl all the way into the dugout. Harper and Strickland were both ejected. In the 2014 NL Division Series, Harper hit two home
