4 This & That OH TO BE YOUNG AGAIN--There are not enough superlatives to describe the work of veteran right-hander Chris Young, who was a late sign after spring training had begun and was slated to work out of the bullpen upon joining the Royals...last night, the soon-to-be 36-year old (his birthday is Monday), fired 6.0 more scoreless innings, scattering six hits and leaving seven Redbirds stranded...the reigning A.L. Comeback Player-of-the-Year, Young dropped his season ERA to 0.78, but has miraculously topped that as a starter with a 0.40 mark, allowing only one earned run in 22.2 innings in four assignments. MORE TWO-OUT TALLIES--Keeping the Royals off the board after two are retired in an inning as been a challenge for all opponents thus far in 2015, as the Royals lead the Majors with a.299 average (141-for-472) with two away...the Royals also top the big league charts in two-out slugging (.456), highlighted by Kendrys Morales 3-run homer with two down in the first inning last night...in fact, KC has scored 42% of their runs this season (86 of 207) with two down...predictably, several Royals rank among the league-leaders in two-out hitting with Morales leading the Majors in two-out hits (24), while tied for the top spot in two-out runs (17) and RBI (19). NED HITS ROYAL MILESTONE--Last night s victory was the 400th for Ned Yost as the skipper of the Royals...already the all-time leader in games managed in Kansas City with 815, he is now closing in on becoming the winningest manager in franchise history...since taking the reigns in Kansas City on May 13, 2010, Yost has compiled a record with the Royals, just 10 wins shy of matching Whitey Herzog (410) for the most in franchise history, while he s now just four behind Dick Howser (404) for second...this is his second stint as a big league manager after nearly six full campaigns at the helm for the Milwaukee Brewers ( )...he compiled a record with the Brew Crew including a mark in his last two seasons...ned s 857 career wins are good for 71st all time, now 22 wins behind George Stallings, who managed the Boston Braves in the early 1900 s...ned s 1,774 games on the bench are 66th in MLB history. LEAGUE LEADERS--When in possession of the best record in the Majors it s only fitting that several names are prevalent among the league leaders...kendrys Morales tops the A.L. charts with 37 RBI, while also ranking tied for first in doubles (15), tied for second in runs (31), tied for second in extra-base hits (21), ranks sixth in batting with runners in scoring position (.408) and eighth in total bases (83)...Mike Moustakas ranks sixth in hitting (.333), tied for sixth in multi-hit games (16), tied for third in 3-hit games (7), tied for sixth in hits (51), ranks fourth in road batting average (.388), third in night games (.351) and tied for second against righthanded pitchers (.367)... Lorenzo Cain is tied for second in runs scored (31) and ranks ninth vs. lefties (.389), while Eric Hosmer is tied for sixth in total bases (85), tied for seventh in extra-base hits (19), ranks ninth in slugging pct. (.531) and is tied for ninth with Moustakas in on-base pct. (.387). ON THE BIG STAGE--Tonight s contest is being viewed in over 60% of the country on FOX Saturday Night Baseball with Matt Vasgersian, soon-to-be-inducted Hall of Famer John Smoltz and Jon-Paul Morosi...Monday s Memorial Day battle in Yankee Stadium will be televised nationally on ESPN with the Sunday Night crew of Dan Shulman, John Kruk, Curt Schilling and Buster Olney mikeside. ROAD WORK AHEAD--The Royals will be depart following Sunday s game for a weeklong journey that features a 3-game stop in Yankee Stadium and a 3-gamer in Wrigley Field...the series in the Bronx will feature day games on Monday and Wednesday sandwiched around a Tuesday night affair...kansas City will head to the Windy City following the Wednesday matinee, take a day off next Thursday and then play its first series at the corner of Clark and Addison since the 2001 campaign. PACKING THE PARK--The Royals are drawing at an unprecedented pace in the 46 years this franchise has been in existence...through 22 home games, the Royals have drawn 688,543 fans for an average of 31,297 per game, which is up 10,735 per date over a year ago when the club had 452,370 through the turnstiles after 22 dates... while there are still 59 home dates on the slate, the current per game average factors out to over 2.5 million over a full season, which would break the current team mark of 2,477,700 set in the Royals have eclipsed the 2,000,000 plateau on 11 occasions, but not since TOPPING THE CHARTS--Kansas City holds the Major League lead in run differential, having outscored their opponents by 69 runs this season, which are 18 runs better than the second best mark held by the Cardinals (+51)...KC has nearly tripled their closest A.L. competition, Houston and Tampa Bay, who are both the Royals rank second in the Majors in runs scored (207) this year, while they ve allowed the second-fewest runs in bigs (138), the only club to rank in the top five in both categories...last season, the Royals outscored their opponents by 27 runs, finishing with an record. WADING THROUGH THE COMPETITION--Relief ace Wade Davis worked a scoreless inning in each of the two KC wins over Cincinnati, featuring his seventh save in as many chances on Tuesday...since the start of the 2014 season, Davis has posted an A.L.-best 11 wins in relief, which are tied with Pittsburgh s Tony Watson and Miami s Bryan Morris for the Major League lead...in that span, Wade has an 11-2 ledger with 10 rescues and a 0.79 ERA (8 earned runs in 91.0 innings) while limiting opposing hitters to a.141 mark, second-best in the Major Leagues...since June 27 of last year, Wade has been even better, going 6-0 with 10 saves, an 0.48 ERA (3 ER in 57.1 IP), a.155 opponents average and strikeouts per 9.0 innings...he has now worked consecutive innings without allowing a home run, the longest-active streak in the Major Leagues...Davis streak dates back to August 24, 2013, which was the date of his last regular season start. vs. Cardinals (2014) vs. Cardinals (career) At Home (career) Lackey (career) Wacha (career) Player AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI Butera Cain Colon Dyson Escobar Gordon Hosmer Infante Morales Moustakas Orlando Perez Interleague Hitting (Career) Player AVG AB H HR RBI Butera Cain Colon Dyson Escobar Gordon Hosmer Infante Morales Moustakas Orlando Perez Starting Pitchers Breakdown Total KC Avg.
