Reliever Evan Meek was sent home with the same bug.

DETROIT -- Its been over a decade since the Kansas City Royals were in first place this late in the season, and try as he might, manager Ned Yost couldnt totally downplay the achievement. Houston Astros T-shirts . He just wants it kept in perspective. "Its nice. Weve got a lot of games to play. We dont get all geeked up," Yost said. "Its better than the alternative, trust me." Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas homered as part of a seven-run second inning, and the Royals displaced the Detroit Tigers atop the AL Central on Tuesday night with an 11-4 victory, their ninth in a row. Kansas City is in first place this late in the season for the first time since 2003, according to STATS. The Royals were leading the division in late August that year, only to finish third at 83-79. They have not made the post-season since winning the World Series in 1985. "A lot of games left, so it really doesnt matter, but to say youre in first place, it feels pretty good," designated hitter Billy Butler said. "Being in first place any time is good -- even if its after the first game." Gordon and Moustakas hit two-run shots off Max Scherzer, and Kansas City has won the first two games of this four-game series emphatically. The Royals, who trailed the Tigers by seven games after a May 20 loss, now lead Detroit by a half-game. Scherzer (8-3) yielded a career high-tying 10 runs in four-plus innings. The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner allowed the first eight batters of the second inning to reach base, with Kansas City scoring six runs before making an out. "Im just not putting guys away with two strikes. Thats my problem," Scherzer said. "Ive taken punches on the chin before, and Ive come back. Im not worried about that. I just have to get back to where Im putting guys away." Scherzer did strike out five in the game. Yordano Ventura (5-5) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings. Ian Kinsler hit a solo homer for Detroit. After winning 86 games in 2013, Kansas City is hoping to unseat the Tigers, who have won the last three division titles. Detroit looked headed for a fourth straight year at the top after a 27-12 start, but now the Tigers are facing a surprising number of questions about their starting rotation, which was expected to be among the best in baseball. Justin Verlander has slumped badly over the last month -- he took the loss in Kansas Citys 11-8 victory in the series opener Monday. Scherzer threw his first career shutout last week, but the Royals tagged him for 10 hits in his next start Tuesday. Gordon opened the scoring with his two-run drive to right field, and Moustakas homer made it 4-0. Omar Infante added a two-run single before Eric Hosmer finally made the first out of the second inning on a tapper to the pitcher. Some fans cheered sarcastically, even though another run came home on the play to make it 7-0. Verlander and Scherzer combined to allow 17 runs in the first two games of this series. Thats the most ever by two teammates with Cy Young Awards in back-to-back team games, according to STATS. Ventura allowed two runs in the second, but that was the first of three consecutive innings in which Detroit hit into a double play. With the Royals ahead 10-2 in the fifth, Ventura walked Miguel Cabrera with the bases loaded, but the hard-throwing rookie caught a break when a pitch to Victor Martinez sailed past catcher Salvador Perez. The ball bounced hard off the backstop, right back to Perez, and Detroits Eugenio Suarez was caught between third base and home. Perez threw to third to catch Suarez retreating and end the inning. NOTES: Detroit is out of first place for the first time since taking over the division lead July 3 last year, according to STATS. ... The Tigers agreed to terms with OF Derek Hill, the teams first-round draft pick. ... Perez extended his hitting streak to 11 games. ... Royals INF Danny Valencia (left hand) was assigned to Triple-A Omaha for a rehab assignment. ... Detroit OF Torii Hunter, who left Mondays game with a hamstring cramp, did not play. ... Detroit LHP Drew Smyly (3-5) faces Kansas City RHP Jeremy Guthrie (3-6) on Wednesday. Norichika Aoki Jersey . Though the 26-year-old said he was able to participate, coach Dwane Casey kept Johnson out as a precaution. George Springer Jersey .Mateo Kovacic and Andrea Ranocchia scored for Inter, which had goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to thank for several crucial saves.Its an important victory against a Chievo side which plays well, Mancini said. http://www.baseballastrosproshop.com...astros-jersey/ . The defeat leaves the 41-year-old Nestor to concentrate on the mixed-doubles event after winning 12 straight matches and winning Australian titles in Brisbane and Sydney with two different partners. "This was a little bit of a let down, but all credit to them," said Nestor.BALTIMORE -- Tuesdays night game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles was postponed by rain. A steady downpour and low temperatures were predicted for much of the night. No makeup date was immediately announced, although it was determined that the game will not be part of a doubleheader on Wednesday. Baltimore won the opener of what was to be a three-game set 7-1 Monday, and the series will conclude Wednesday afternoon. The Rays were looking to break out of an offensive skid in which they scored only 14 runs in eight games. Tampa Bay announced Tuesday that left-hander Matt Moore will be miss the rest of the season after opting to undergo elbow-ligament replacement surgery. It was a significant blow for a team that already has starters Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) and Alex Cobb (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list. Moore had never missed time before, and Maddon knew it would be tough on the left-hander. "Emotionally its got to be very difficult for him right now," the manager said. "Its ggoing to be hard to ask him to be patient as he goes through the process, but we have great medical people here. Carlos Lee Jersey. " Tampa Bays pitching problems extended beyond that. Brandon Gomes was slated to start Tuesday night in place of Jake Odorizzi, who was sent back to the team hotel Monday with an illness. Odorizzi will pitch Wednesday, Maddon said. The Orioles, meanwhile, were preparing to play without centre fielder Adam Jones, who was sent home with flu-like symptoms. Reliever Evan Meek was sent home with the same bug. Last week, reliever Brian Matusz went to the hospital after falling ill, and third base coach Bobby ****erson left the team for the same reason. "Its not just in our locker room," manager Buck Showalter said. "Unfortunately, medically, a lot of it is unavoidable other than dont touch or communicate with anybody all day. Thats pretty hard to do in our sport. Id like to say I havent seen it before, but I have. I just hope it runs its course."
