LHP Kris Bubic and Kansas City Royals ready for exit against Oakland Athletics


The Kansas City Royals lost Wednesday afternoon and will look to get back to winning ways on Thursday.

In Surprise, AZ, the Royals lost 9-5 to the visiting San Francisco Giants. Starting pitcher Carlos Hernandez, one of the Royals’ brightest young talents a year ago, struggled a lot and ended up giving up six runs in the second inning. The trio of Kyle Isbel, Edward Olivares and Salvador Perez did their best to keep Kansas City in the game but in the end the damage was already done and the Giants took the win as the Royals fell to 7-4 -1 in spring. training.

On Thursday, the Royals are in Mesa, AZ, to take on the hosting Oakland Athletics at Hohokam Stadium. It’s been a tough spring for the A’s, as they are 3-8-1 in their game against the Royals. Brady Singer, Scott Barlow and Josh Staumont are listed as Thursday’s likely pitchers, with Jonathan Heasley, Angel Zerpa, Collin Snider and Taylor Clarke being on deck as likely on Friday when Kansas City takes on San Diego.
