Today’s Game: The Kansas City Royals conclude their road series against the Mariners with their third game tomorrow at 3:10 PM CT. Alec Marsh will make his second start after returning from injury, as he will look to maintain his unblemished 3-0 record. He will face Bryan Woo, who is making his second start of the season and has not yet made a decision. You can watch the game on Bally Sports or MLB.TV (blackouts may occur depending on location).

Yesterday’s result: The Royals found themselves in a pitchers’ duel last night and were only able to score in the seventh inning. Luckily for Kansas City, a three-run shot from Nelson Velazquez was all they needed to get past the Mariners. The Royals recorded their 26th win of the season in the 4-2 win. Micahel Wacha picked up the decisive victory to help his record to 3-4 on the season.

In case you missed it:

• Michael Wacha doubled his previous rebounding performance, earning seven strikeouts and a win in six innings and just one earned run.

• Salvador Perez remained productive for the Royals at the plate, earning a run and walking two. One of the walks led to a run on a homerun by Nelson Velazquez.

• Despite being credited with the save, James McArthur struggled to close out the game. Allowing two hits and a solo home run before finally putting the game away.

On this day in Royals history:

22 years ago today, the Royals hired Astros bench coach Tony Pena to replace then-interim coach John Mizerock. Over four seasons, Pena would go 198-285 before being fired just 33 games into the 2005 season.
