KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Homer Bailey has endured some tough times since he pitched no-hitters in 2012 and 2013. He showed flashes of nearly that kind of dominance in his latest start.
DETROIT (AP) — This time, the Kansas City Royals had enough hitting and pitching.
Ian Kennedy pitched three-run ball into the eighth inning, and the Royals stopped a five-game slide by holding off the Detroit Tigers for a 4-3 win on Friday night.
Alex Gordon had three hits for the Royals, who hit four homers in 11-8 loss in the series opener. Rosell Herrera had two hits and drove in a run.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Ian Kennedy, Alex Gordon and the rest of the Royals' veterans have been watching as their talented young teammates delivered win after win during a surprising late-season surge.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The temperature was 32 degrees, the lowest for the start of a game in the 25-year history of Progressive Field, when starter Cleveland Mike Clevinger threw the first pitch to Kansas City's Jon Jay on Sunday.
The previous record was 33 degrees for games against Toronto on April 5 and April 7, 1996.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Trevor Bauer felt the rules beat him before the Royals did.
Bauer allowed Lucas Duda's homer on his first pitch in the seventh inning for the game's only run and Ian Kennedy pitched six shutout innings, leading Kansas City to a 1-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday in frigid, football-like weather conditions.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Matt Davidson figures the pitching staff for the White Sox is good enough to keep them in just about any game. The only question is whether their offense is going to come through.
It hasn't been much of a question through their first two games.
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals signed veteran right-hander Ricky Nolasco to a minor league contract on Wednesday with an invitation to spring training.
He will get $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster and could earn another $250,000 in performances bonuses. He also can opt out of the contract on March 24 if he's not added to the 25-man big league roster.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have extended qualifying offers to outfielder Lorenzo Cain, first baseman Eric Hosmer and third baseman Mike Moustakas.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — With the start Eddie Rosario gave Minnesota, manager Paul Molitor was hoping to for an easier win. This time of year, of course, he'll take it.
Rosario homered and drove in four runs over the first four innings, helping the Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 8-5 on Friday night.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Phillies manager Pete Mackanin picks between two pairs of red sneakers based on which ones have been on his feet during hard-to-come-by wins. Brewers catcher Stephen Vogt gets dressed in a specific sequence each day, down to how he pulls on his socks and in what order. Sometimes, Kansas City's Brandon Moss pretends to be superstitious by going with a good-luck bat.
A look at what's happening all around the majors today:
Nationals ace Max Scherzer pitches for the first time since leaving his previous start because of neck spasms. Scherzer (12-5, 2.21 ERA) was pushed back to give him extra time to get ready going into this game at Miami. The right-hander leads the NL with 201 strikeouts.
SEATTLE (AP) — Seemed appropriate Mike Moustakas put his name in the Kansas City record book for home run hitting on the day he was added to the Home Run Derby festivities at the All-Star Game.
Moustakas hit his 23rd home run of the season — the most ever by a Royals' player before the All-Star break — and Ian Kennedy allowed one run pitching into the seventh as Kansas City beat the Seattle Mariners 3-1 on Monday night.
DETROIT (AP) — There was no way any Detroit outfielder was going to catch this drive by Salvador Perez.
A night after he was robbed of an extra-base hit by the center fielder, Perez hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning, and the Kansas City Royals went on to an 8-2 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday. Mike Moustakas followed Perez's long home run by going deep as well, part of a four-run fourth inning by the Royals.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Ian Kennedy and Cliff Pennington are former teammates and good buddies, although that second relationship could be up for review after Pennington's homer broke up Kennedy's bid for a perfect game.
"He's a terrible friend of mine," Kennedy said with a laugh. "I'm probably deleting him from my phone."
Kennedy probably won't have to do anything that drastic, thanks to Lorenzo Cain's latest feats of prowess for the streaking Kansas City Royals.
