After a big win over the Blue Jays, it was slow jam time in the Kansas City Royals clubhouse. Maybe they were dedicating it to new teammate Ben Zobrist. Zobrist hit solo home runs from both sides of the plate, Eric Hosmer singled home the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Royals beat Toronto 7-6 on Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.

Aaron Brooks was far more pleased with the ovation he received in his Oakland debut than how he was received in his first career start with Kansas City more than 14 months ago. This time, the 25-year-old drew a standing ovation from the Athletics crowd after earning his first win the majors. Marcus Semien homered to back Brooks and the A’s beat the Cleveland Indians 5-1 on Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak. View full post on Yahoo Sports – MLB – Toronto Blue Jays News

Kansas City Royals designed hitter K endrys Morales  is rarely among the most athletic players on the field, hence the reason he’s paid almost exclusively to hit.  However, during Friday night’s game in Toronto, he managed to shock everyone watching by pulling off one of the most ridiculous slides we’ve seen all season.   [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today!l ] It happened in the first inning with Kansas City already on the board and threatening for more. With runners on second and third and two outs, newly-acquired Ben Zobrist delivered a clean single to right field off Toronto starter Drew Hutchinson. Lead runner Eric Hosmer scored easily from third, but a play was clearly developing with Morales coming around third and Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista charging.  Though his right shoulder hasn’t been healthy all season, Bautista fired a strong throw home that was slightly to the first base side but had Morales beat by plenty. Catcher Russell Martin collected the ball and turned to make what should have been an easy tag. However, Morales managed to halt his momentum, pop to his feet and step right around as he Martin’s mometum carried him by.  Let us admire from above. Kendrys Morales. Stop it. http://t.co/T9BjLnuKGi pic.twitter.com/fESjnzqflA — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) July 31, 2015 That rivals Mike Trout’s acrobatic slide earlier this season in Boston . Only it isn’t Mike Trout or anyone comparable from an athletic standpoint. It’s Kendrys Morales.  The same guy who once broke his ankle jumping on home plate while celebrating a walk-off grand slam.  Needless to say, he’s not the most graceful or nimble on his feet, but Morales looked the part times ten on Friday. If not the best baserunning play of the season, it’s certainly the most shocking and for that we humbly tip our cap in tribute.  [ Every deal that happened on MLB trade-deadline day. ] The only thing that could have made it better for Kansas City would Morales’ run holding up a difference in the game. That would not be the case, as Toronto overcame two separate three-run deficits to win 7-6 in innings.  More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mark Townsend is a writer for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports.

The Mets finally landed the bat they were looking for in Yoenis Cespedes just ahead of Friday’s trade deadline, and Cole Hamels confirmed he blocked a trade to Houston before Philadelphia dealt its ace to Texas. Sixteen trades were made Friday ahead of the annual deadline for deals without waivers, but San Diego was among the buyers, not the sellers, to the surprise of some. Hamels was the only top starting pitcher dealt following earlier trades that sent Scott Kazmir to Houston, Johnny Cueto to Kansas City and David Price to Toronto.
