KANSAS CITY, Mo. Brook Lopez Jersey . -- Royals manager Ned Yost admitted that he often manages an entire game around getting the ball to reliever Wade Davis in the eighth inning and closer Greg Holland in the ninth. The fact that Yordano Ventura gave him six solid innings made things even easier. Ventura returned from a sore elbow to keep the St. Louis Cardinals off balance, and Kansas City rallied for three runs in the sixth inning before the bullpen closed out a 3-2 win Thursday night that ended a string of eight straight home losses to its cross-state rivals. "The bullpen was fantastic tonight," Yost said. Of course, so was Ventura. The hard-throwing right-hander was skipped his previous time through the rotation because of the ailment, but looked sharp in his return. Ventura (3-5) pitched to contact and took advantage of some sharp defence, which helped him to limit the damage whenever he ran into trouble. "Everything was good," Ventura said through a translator. "I wasnt nervous. I was very anxious. I wanted to pitch well to help the team win." He wasnt in line for the win until the Royals rallied for three runs off Michael Wacha (4-4) in the sixth inning, and Francisley Bueno and Davis each pitched a perfect inning in relief. Holland made things interesting in the ninth. Oscar Taveras led off with a grounder toward second base that Omar Infante fielded deep in the hole and threw awkwardly to first base. Umpire Dan Iassogna initially ruled the throw beat Taveras to the bag, but a video review showed that he was clearly safe. Holland proceeded to strike out Jhonny Peralta, but a wild pitch sent pinch runner Randal Grichuk to second base. Holland then struck out Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos to end the game. The Royals took the first two games of the four-game, two-city series at Busch Stadium, and then lost 5-2 in 11 innings on Wednesday night before taking the series finale. Kansas City improved to 6-2 against National League clubs this season, while its slumping cross-state rivals lost for the seventh time in their past eight games. The game was expected to be a showdown between two of the games bright young pitchers in Ventura, with his 100 mph fastball, and Wacha, who emerged for St. Louis last season. Neither of them disappointed. Ventura left two runners aboard in the first inning and a runner on third base in each of the next three innings. Alex Gordon then helped him out of the fifth, when he threw out Yadier Molina trying to stretch a single into a double with a strong throw from left field. The call was confirmed after a review that lasted 3 minutes, 30 seconds. Wacha only allowed two hits through the first five innings before Alcides Escobar started the Royals rally with a double in the sixth. Nori Aoki followed with an RBI double and Eric Hosmer guided a single through a drawn-in infield to knot the game 2-all. Salvador Perez, who had been in a 2-for-24 slump at home, followed with a go-ahead single. "Wacha was real good up the point of the sixth inning and thats consecutive starts where weve had starters come out and be real good and just hit a wall," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "We just werent able to get enough offence back after that." The fact that Aoki had a part in the Royals sixth-inning rally was perhaps fitting. The outfielder was leading off in the first inning when he took a pitch low and inside. He was still leaning slightly over the plate when Molina tried to return the ball to Wacha, and the throw instead ricocheted hard off Aokis helmet and toward the third-base dugout. Aoki crumpled into a heap and lay in the dirt for several minutes before resuming his at-bat. He later grounded out, but hurt the Cardinals with his double during the Royals decisive rally. "Yadi was real apologetic," Yost said. "Nori was just like, OK, OK." NOTES: Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong left in the fifth inning with soreness in his left shoulder, which he hurt diving for a ball Tuesday night in St. Louis. Daniel Descalso replaced him. ...

Jerry West Jersey . - Hitting was supposed to be the Pittsburgh Pirates weakness coming into the season yet they lead the major leagues in home runs through the first 16 games of the season. http://www.lakersbasketballshop.com/ . Alen, 28, hit .315 with five home runs, 59 RBI and a career-high nine stolen bases for the Goldeyes last season. He is the longest serving catcher in Goldeyes history, having already spent five seasons with the organization.A good thing came to an end for the Winnipeg Goldeyes Tuesday night and Sioux City Explorers pitcher Patrick Johnson is largely to blame. The Goldeyes struck out 11 times at the hands of Johnson and had their franchise record 11-game winning streak end with a 2-1 loss to the Explorers before 5,010 fans at Shaw Park. The loss shrinks Winnipegs lead in the American Associations North Division to 8 1/2 games. "Johnson pitched a hell of a ballgame today," Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said. "At this level, you usually dont see that kind of arm speed and velocity. It was a good match up (for him) with that umpire (Nick Gonzalez). That umpire calls a high strike and its tough to catch up to when you dont see it all the time and have to guard against three other pitches. We were overmatched by this guy." Sioux City started the scoring in the top of the third inning. After Tommy Mendonca led off the with a triple, he scored on a two-out single by Oscar Mesa. Winnipeg had a golden opportunity to take the lead in the bottom of the fourth, but the Goldeyes left the bases loaded when Reggie Abercrombie struck out. "If we could have cashed our chips in the fourth inning, it would have been a totally different ballgame,&" Forney said. Kurt Rambis Jersey. Winnipeg finally tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning. Ryan Pineda led off with a single, went to second on a bunt by Tyler Kuhn, stole third and scored on a Josh Mazzola sac fly. The tie didnt last long, though. Former Goldeyes infielder Amos Ramon hit an RBI single the top of the ninth inning off Chris Kissock to regain the lead for the Explorers. "We were fortunate to get out of (the top of the ninth) with only giving up one run, but unfortunately that one run was enough for them to win the ballgame," Forney said. Kuhn was the only Goldeyes player to register a hit in the game. In fact, five Goldeyes didnt register a hit in the game, including Casey Haerther, whose 17-game hitting streak also came to an end. Goldeyes starter Chris Salamida posted his third consecutive quality start, allowing just one run in seven innings of work. He struck out seven and walked just one in a no-decision. Johnson picked up the win for Sioux City, while Kissock suffered the loss for Winnipeg. The second game of the three-game series goes Wednesday night at Shaw Park. American Association win-leader Matt Jackson (7-2, 2.83) will face Sioux Citys John Straka (4-4, 3.12).
