(AP) —.Ryan O’Hearn homered and drove in a career-high three runs, Brad Keller threw seven strong innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Monday night to spoil Reid-Foley’s first game.Reid-Foley (0-1) was removed after 97 pitches and five innings, allowing three runs, six hits and three walks while striking out three. Considered among Toronto’s top pitching prospects, the 22-year-old Reid-Foley is only the second player in major league history to be born in Guam. He was 12-4 with a 2.98 ERA in 23 minor league starts this season.“I couldn’t really feel my body because I was so nervous,” Reid-Foley said. “I felt like my legs weren’t really working. That’s why a lot of my misses were way out of the zone. I was still nervous in the fifth. Every pitch, still nervous.”O’Hearn, a rookie who entered hitting .130 with three RBIs, hit an opposite-field homer on Reid-Foley’s first pitch with Brett Phillips aboard with two outs in the second.“(Opposite-field power) is something that has kind of got me here,” O’Hearn said. “It’s definitely something that has been one of my strengths.”O’Hearn walked with the bases loaded in the fourth to bring home Lucas Duda http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-chance-sisco-jersey , who led off the inning with a single.Keller (5-5) yielded one run and four hits to pick up his third victory in his past four decisions.Wily Peralta worked around Justin Smoak’s walk leading off the ninth for his seventh save.Devon Travis homered in the first for Toronto. It was his fourth home run in 26 at-bats at Kauffman Stadium.“The pitch before, he shattered his bat,” Keller said. “So I tried to go back in there and he barreled with me around the pole. I made a good pitch and didn’t dwell on it and just tried to go after the next guy.”Jansen singled to left in the second in his first big league at-bat.“The whole day I was trying to tell myself it’s the same game,” Jansen said. “And when I got into the box I was just trying to breathe and trying to put a barrel on the ball.Russell Martin tried to score from second on Jansen’s single, but Alex Gordon threw him out. Gordon picked up his ninth assist and leads the majors with 91 outfield assists since 2010 when he was moved from third base to left field.Salvador Perez threw out Randal Grichuk on a strike them out, throw them out double play to end the sixth.

It has occurred five times in the past 25 years in the National League.“Both those guys ought to feel real good Jeremy Hellickson Jersey , even if it was a bad result,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.ROYALS DEFENSE SHINESThe Royals played their 13th straight errorless game, extending their club record. They have not committed an error in 120 innings.“One thing we’ve consistently done this year is play defense,” Yost said. “The same tune we were playing in the championship years. I’m pleased with the way we’ve played defensively. It’s a real struggle when you’re not winning games and playing sloppy defense. At least defensively, we’re giving ourselves a chance.”Their last error was July 29 in the first inning at Yankee Stadium.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (left calf tightness) will begin running the bases this week. Gibbons is hopeful that Donaldson will play again this season. … An MRI revealed IF Yangervis Solarte (oblique) has a Grade 2 strain. He will be re-evaluated in three weeks.Royals: LHP Danny Duffy (shoulder impingement) was placed on the disabled list. RHP Glenn Sparkman was recalled from Triple-A Omaha and will start on Thursday in Duffy’s place.UP NEXTBlue Jays: LHP Ryan Borucki is 2-2 with 2.81 ERA in his first eight starts.Royals: RHP Heath Fillmyer pitched seven scoreless innings against the Cubs to win his previous start. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics were an average team two months ago, a dozen games behind the Houston Astros and closer to the bottom of the AL West than the top.Well, look at the A’s now.Trevor Cahill pitched one-hit ball for seven shutout innings and the Athletics kept up their unlikely turnaround, tying Houston for the division lead by beating the Astros 7-1 Saturday.“It’s been a nice run for sure,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said.Khris Davis http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-caleb-joseph-jersey , Matt Olson, Josh Phegley and Stephen Piscotty each hit two of Oakland’s team record-tying eight doubles as the A’s won for the sixth time in seven games.The Athletics trailed the defending World Series champion Astros by 12 games following play on June 18, having just reached the .500 mark, and were still 10 out on July 10.Houston has lost seven of eight and dropped 12 of 19 since owning a six-game lead on July 24. The next day, reigning AL MVP Jose Altuve went on the disabled list with knee trouble, and the star second baseman is still out.Cahill (5-2) allowed only an infield single by Yuli Gurriel in the second inning. The right-hander struck out seven, walked one and retired 14 straight batters during one stretch.“I was able to attack the zone a little more and got some quick outs,” Cahill said. “The offense came through and made it a lot easier.”Cahill, who was on the disabled list in June because of an Achilles injury, improved to 4-0 over his last six starts Roberto Alomar Jersey , his longest winning streak in five years. He also has won 10 decisions in a row at the Coliseum.“He dominated us,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “He was clearly doing whatever he wanted with the ball. When they got the lead he pitched pretty aggressively and we chased. He controlled the game.”Tony Kemp homered in the ninth for Houston’s only other hit.Phegley had three RBIs and Davis drove in two.Dallas Keuchel (9-10) gave up five runs and nine hits in 5 2/3 innings. It’s the most runs he has allowed since giving up six against Toronto on June 27, a span of nine starts.The A’s matched their best record after 123 games since 1992 and are 25 games over .500 for the first time since Aug. 14, 2014. They’re now 15-1-2 over their previous 18 series dating to June 15.Houston’s Alex Bregman walked to lead off the seventh, extending his on-base streak to 38 consecutive road games, the longest such active streak in the majors.Oakland’s Matt Chapman went 0 for 4, ending his 14-game hitting streak and 30-game on-base streak.STREAK REMEMBEREDThe Athletics honored members of the 2002 team that had a 20-game winning streak and was featured in the movie, “Moneyball.” Scott Hatteberg, who hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth for the 20th win on Sept. 4, always felt then-manager Art Howe got a bum deal in the movie. “The story is seen through Hollywood and they needed a villain. He was not that guy http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-dustin-pedroia-jersey ,” Hatteberg said Saturday. “He was never too high or too low. That season was chock full of memories and he was not one for speeches. He stayed calm and that helped us play better.” Howe sent a video message acknowledging the team and fans.PERPLEXED AND PUZZLEDHinch is still not convinced that Ramon Laureano was safe at home in the bottom of the ninth Friday night, despite the play being reversed by replay. “Until I see something with his hand on the plate without the tag I’m not going to like it,” he said before Saturday’s game. “I don’t know fully what they have but we trust they have something because they have to. It feels pretty hollow.” Laureano scored the tying run and the A’s won 4-3 on Olson’s homer in the 10th.TRAINER’S ROOMAstros: RHP Chris Devenski struck out three and allowed two hits in a scoreless inning at Triple-A Fresno on Friday night in his second rehab appearance. … C Brian McCann was 1 for 4 in his first rehab appearance with the Grizzlies on Thursday night as the DH. … Altuve is scheduled to start a rehab assignment on Sunday in Tacoma and is expected to rejoin the team next week in Seattle.UP NEXTAstros right-hander Justin Verlander (11-8, 2.52 ERA) faces Athletics lefty Sean Manaea (11-8, 3.44 ERA) in the series finale Sunday.
