Tyler Mahle is pitching well in June. Then again Eric Sogard Milwaukee Brewers Jersey , most everyone is pitching well against the Kansas City Royals this month.

Mahle allowed three hits while working into the seventh, Adam Duvall hit a ninth-inning grand slam and the Cincinnati Reds beat the skidding Royals 7-0 on Wednesday night.

Mahle (5-6) allowed only one runner to touch second base in 6 1/3 innings, matching his career longest start. He is 2-0 in June, allowing two earned runs and 14 hits in 16 1/3 innings.

”I was able to make big pitches, get weak contact and guys were able to make plays behind me, and I was able to hold them off long enough for us to score some runs,” Mahle said.

The Royals have lost nine of 10 and have dropped 23 of 33 home games. They have scored 11 runs in their last eight games and 23 in 12 June games. They have scored one run in the past 25 innings.

”We’ve got to be better than that,” losing pitcher Jason Hammel said. ”This losing is getting old.”

Kansas City is hitting .147 this month with runners in scoring position, including 1 for 25 in the past six games.

Duvall greeted rookie reliever Jason Adam with his second grand slam in two weeks Mitch Haniger Seattle Mariners Jersey , driving a 2-2 pitch over the left-center wall.

”He threw me a couple of curveballs earlier in that at-bat, but I knew he liked his heater,” Duvall said. ”That’s what I was looking for there. It’s a good feeling to come in here and win two.”

Hammel (2-7) allowed three runs on seven hits over 7 1/3 innings. The Royals committed three errors, including two in the seventh helping the Reds score two runs.

”I know guys are not trying to kick the ball, not try to misplay it, but at this level those things affect the outcome,” Hammel said. ”That’s the game in a nutshell.”

Alex Gordon, a five-time American League Gold Glove winner, made two defensive gems in the sixth inning. Curt Casali singled off the left-field bullpen fence and tried to stretch it into a double. Gordon threw him out from the warning track for his fifth outfield assist this season and the 85th of his career.

Two pitches later http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-marquez-valdes-scantling-jersey , Gordon made a diving head-first catch of Billy Hamilton’s liner to rob him of a hit.

”The first thing that went through my mind, is no wonder he’s a gold, platinum glove winner,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. ”He’s just so fantastic out there.”

Salvador Perez and Hunter Dozier grounded into double plays to end the first two Royals innings.

Mahle retired 12 of the next 13 batters he faced after Gordon walked in the second inning.

The Royals didn’t have a runner touch second base until Whit Merrifield doubled with two out in the sixth.

The Clippers have a new backcourt duo.

Kentucky point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was the 11th pick of the NBA draft by Charlotte, who traded him to the Clippers on Thursday night. The Clippers had drafted forward Miles Bridges of Michigan State with the 12th overall pick and sent Bridges and two future second-round picks to the Hornets for Gilgeous-Alexander. LA also picked Boston College guard Jerome Robinson.

Gilgeous-Alexander feels he’s a good fit for the Clippers.

”I feel like they don’t have an alpha dog point guard right now and a guy that brings ultimate leadership to the group Dante Pettis Color Rush Jersey ,” Gilgeous-Alexander said on a conference call. ”I feel that’s one of my biggest attributes and what I bring to the table.”

Robinson, the 13th pick, said he thinks the NBA is going for versatility and that suits him. ”I think I can bring being a shot-maker at three levels, a playmaker, a guy that can guard and play multiple positions,” Robinson said.

Jerome and Gilgeous-Alexander could be the future of the Clippers backcourt one day.

”I think (Robinson) is a fabulous talent,” Gilgeous-Alexander said. ”Everyone in the country knows how well he shoots it. What they don’t know is his playmaking ability as well. Playing with him would be super fun, and I can’t wait.”

Gilgeous-Alexander said he watched a lot of Chris Paul in the pick-and-roll system, James Harden and Patrick Beverley in trying to make himself an all-around player. Now he’ll be suiting up for Paul’s former team.

Gilgeous-Alexander grew up in Canada and played for the Canadian Junior National Team. He played high school basketball in Tennessee and one season at Kentucky.

At Kentucky Josh Hader Milwaukee Brewers Jersey , Gilgeous-Alexander averaged 14.4 points, 5.1 assists and 1.6 steals.

He said he was looking forward to going against Beverley in practice and learning from what he does defensively.

”It’s a great feeling,” Gilgeous-Alexander said. ”Just being able to play in the NBA, first and foremost. You feel like you fit well and somewhere you want to go to, so it’s an even better feeling right now.”

Robinson was an unheralded recruit out of high school in Raleigh, North Carolina, and he stayed in school for three years. Last year with the Eagles, he averaged 20.7 points per game and improved his NBA stock.

He’s not new to Los Angeles, either. Robinson spent last summer working out with other NBA players like Russell Westbrook and Emmanuel Mudiay before returning to Boston College for his final season.

”It was unbelievable. It was life-changing going against some of the best competition in the world Da'Shawn Hand Color Rush Jersey ,” Robinson said. ”There’s nothing like it. It was an amazing feeling.”

The Clippers went into the draft with the idea of getting the best players available.

”Super, super excited to add two high-character competitive, tough, high-IQ players,” said Lawrence Frank, executive vice president of basketball operations. ”That’s how we identify what a Clipper is. Both of these guys are great representatives of who we are and the direction we’re going.”
