- Royals pitcher Jakob Junis has been striking batters out at a higher rate. He had a good outing against the A’s in April.

No matter how you slice it — Cole vs. Hamels, Gerrit vs. Cole — yesterday’s Rangers-Astros Under 9 was a decisive under victory for us. Now we’ve arrived to Friday, so let’s see how I’m kicking off the weekend.
