World Series 2015: Chris Young’s excellent relief work key in Royals’ Game 1 victory

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The list of Royals who came through in the biggest moments of the team’s dramatic, 14-inning Game 1 victory is long.Alex Gordon hit a game-tying home run. Alcides Escobar led off the game with an inside-the-park homer and scored the game-winning run. Eric Hosmer had the game-winning sacrifice fly. Mike Moustakas made https://www.redsoxedge.com/boston-red-sox/roger-clemens-jersey a couple of great defensive plays at third base.MORE: SN’s AL All-Star team | SN’s NL All-Star team | Royals, Fox made right call on VolquezChris Young didn’t have that signature moment, and that’s why he’s here. Young was so brilliant out of the bullpen that he didn’t put himself in position to need a signature moment.The 6-10 https://www.redsoxedge.com/boston-red-sox/wade-boggs-jersey right-hander, who’s still scheduled to be Kansas City’s Game 4 starter, came in to start the 12th inning, as the Royals’ seventh pitcher of the contest.He struck out the only three hitters he faced in the 12th, allowed only a two-out walk in the 13th and set the Mets down 1-2-3 in the 14th.

LaRoche saga won’t stop, even after Reinsdorf’s directive to White Sox

The quote of the day in baseball on Saturday belonged to White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton, on Chicago radio station 670 The Score, as brought to the world on Twitter by Matt Abbatacola.”We lost a LEADER in Drake”- @AdamSpankyEaton on @670TheScore Matt Abbatacola (@MattAbbatacola) March 19, 2016MORE: Other players who take their kids to work| PHOTOS: Drake and dadEaton was referring, of course, to Drake LaRoche Barry Larkin Jersey , the 14-year-old son of now-retired designated hitter Adam LaRoche, whose exit from the game was prompted this week by White Sox management requesting that Drake not be in the clubhouse every day.What is stunning about this isn’t that Eaton is saying that a 14-year-old was a leader for the White Sox. At this point, the whole thing has spun so far out of control that you wouldn’t be surprised to hear someone on the White Sox say that the reason Drake was around so much was that he was very close to completing work on a time machine to go back to 1919 and convince the Black Sox not to throw the World Series.The thing that stands out is that the discord between players and management is continuing. On Friday, White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf i sued a statement designed to bring silence to the subject.While we appreciate everyone’s attention and interest, we continue to feel that it would be premature to comment at this time, Reinsdorf said. This is an internal i sue, and we are in the proce s of holding a number of discu sions with players, staff and the front office. As a result, we do not want to comment until that proce s is completed. https://www.redsedges.com/cincinnati-reds/anthony-desclafani-jersey I have instructed members of the organization not to talk about this i sue and get our focus back on the field and winning games.MORE: If LaRoche was better, this wouldn’t happen | Ken Williams under fire?One day later, there was Eaton, not only not disobeying an ownership directive, but escalating things by emphasizing his former teammate’s son’s importance to the team.For what it’s worth, the White Sox did maintaintheir focus on the field and won a Cactus League game on Friday, notching a 3-2 win over the Cubs that included five innings of one-hit ball from John Danks and a double and a run scored for designated hitter Travis Ishikawa, whose Dave Concepcion Jersey job prospects are better with LaRoche out of the picture.Whatever the truth is about how LaRoche got out of the picture matters le s with each pa sing day. If the divide between White Sox players and White Sox management continues to fester, it’s going to be up to them to figure out how to make that something that actually works for them, unlike that last big scandalDrake LaRoche may or may not have been trying to travel nearly a century to avert.
