KANSAS CITY, Mo. Andre Johnson Authentic Jersey . —
Cole De Vries likes to face the Kansas City Royals. Justin Morneau drove in two
runs and Minnesota rookie De Vries beat the Royals again 3-1 on Saturday in the
first game of a doubleheader. De Vries (4-5) has four career victories and three
of them are against the Royals. “Oh, I cant say that I know that,” De Vries said
of being 3-0 in as many starts against the Royals. “That makes me happy. Thats
pretty good.” So he owns them? “I guess,” he said and laughed. “Something is
working. I feel like half of my starts have been against the Royals or the White
Sox. I feel I know both those teams decently well. I feel comfortable pitching
against both of them just because Ive pitched against them so much.” He limited
the Royals to one run on seven hits, walked none and struck out three over 6 2/3
innings. “My two-seamer for whatever reason it just had a lot of movement, had
pretty good control with it and I was getting a lot of awkward swings,” De Vries
said. “That and my curveball were definitely my two best today.” De Vries has
won consecutive starts, holding Texas and Kansas City to 10 hits and two earned
runs in 11 2-3 innings. “Anytime you can get back-to-back wins, its alright,” De
Vries said. Morneau, who has 77 career RBIs against the Royals, doubled home
Josh Willingham in the first inning with the first Twins run. Morneaus sacrifice
fly to centre scored Pedro Florimon, who led off the fifth inning with a bunt
single. Ryan Doumits two-out single to right brought home Darin Mastroianni with
the other run. Royals rookie Will Smith (4-7) lost his third consecutive start,
giving up three runs on nine hits and two walks, while striking out four in
six-plus innings. The Twins loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but
reliever Vin Mazzaro got out of the jam when Doumit grounded into a double play
after Morneau was intentionally walked. Mazzaro had not pitched since Aug. 21 in
the minors. The Royals chased De Vries in the seventh with three hits.
Johnny Giavotellas two-out single scored Mike Moustakas. “We just couldnt muster
anything against him (De Vries),” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He does a nice
job of keeping the ball down and getting us to swing at his pitches a lot more
than we want to.” Glen Perkins worked the ninth for his ninth save in 12
opportunities. Royals right fielder Jeff Francoeur logged his major
league-leading 16th assist in the fifth when he threw out Willingham trying to
go from first to third. Notes: Manager Ron Gardenhire said the Twins “might go”
to a six-man rotation with the additions Saturday of RHPs P.J. Walters, who was
reinstated from the disabled list, and Esmerling Vasquez, who was promoted from
Triple-A Rochester and is scheduled to start Sunday against the Royals. Vasquez
was strictly a reliever from 2009-11 with Arizona, but the Twins plan to look at
him as a starter. Walters started before shoulder inflammation shut him down for
70 games. ...There were 6.54 inches of rain to fall at Kauffman Stadium in a
29-hour period before the first pitch Saturday, which was delayed 21 minutes.
.The Royals recalled OF David Lough, who hit .275 with Triple-A Omaha, and C
Manny Pina, who hit .260 in 43 games with Triple-A Northwest Arkansas after
having right knee surgery in spring training. Lough started off the nightcap
with a single in his first big league at-bat. ...The Royals dropped to 7-22
against theTwins, Seattle and Toronto, the three last-place teams in their AL
divisions. Andre Johnson Elite Jersey .J. Tucker to a
two-year contract. The Suns say the teams front office and coaching staff were
impressed with Tuckers performance in the Las Vegas Summer League, leading to
the signing. Arian Foster Navy Jersey . Rose scored 26
points and had 13 assists and Deng added 21 points in his return after missing
seven games due to injury, as the Chicago Bulls easily beat the Milwaukee Bucks
113-90 Saturday night. http://www.nfltexansfansshop.com/ . Louis
Cardinals. He sure got plenty of help on Sunday. Holliday had four hits and four
RBIs, Adam Wainwright won his fifth consecutive start and the Cardinals beat the
Cincinnati Reds 8-2 on Sunday. Arian Foster Youth Jersey . There was no
collision, but a lead horse for the team of driver Chad Harden suddenly went
down, bringing two others horses with him and sending Harden and an outrider
flying through the air. Brian Cushing White Jersey . Williams played
through a bad back that forced her to get treatment and reduced her second serve
to 63 mph (101 kph) in the third set.Greetings from Dallas! Watch the Raptors
take on the Mavericks tonight on TSN. Hopefully a better performance compared to
the Raptors showing in Oklahoma City on Tuesday. Heres a few quick thoughts on
Kyle Lowry, Damian Lilliard, Serge Ibaka, Mario Chalmers and
Derrick Williams.        1. Kyle Lowrys Injury: No word on the prognosis yet but
needless to say, any time missed is a major blow to the development of this
team. Difficult early schedule and you need your best guys in this stretch. He
was playing terrific ball and the spotlight will now focus on Jose Calderon and
John Lucas, who are both more than capable guys. Early season adversity for team
and well find out a bunch about lots of guys in the coming days. 2. Damian
Lilliard (Blazers): Have been impressed by the rookie so far. Quick and
explosive and makes good reads in the screen and roll. A good two-man game
pairing with LaMarcus Aldridge. Blazers very well might have gotten themselves a
keeper at this spot. Lots of bumps in the road ahead for him for sure but I like
what Ive seen so far. 3. Serge Ibaka (Thunder): Looks so much more comfortable
offensively than weve seen in the past. Incredible speed for a guy his size. His
decissions and awareness are more advanced at this stage. Andre Johnson Pink Jersey. Looks like he
knows what works for him and how to go about it. Sign of maturity. Terrific
physical talent and now the polish is starting to show. He is a guy who will
battle on the glass and has good overall defensive instincts. Now the offence is
starting to come around a bit. 4. Mario Chalmers (Heat): This guy has grown on
me over the past few years. Love his drive and passion. Very confident and
always brings energy. His ability to defend at the point is underrated at times.
His shooting has improved and I love how he gets the pace going in the
transition game. He accepts his role and does it well. He shows up every game
and gives you his all. 5. Derrick Williams (TWolves): Still trying to figure out
his role and position in the NBA. He was terrific at Arizona and I thought hed
find his way rather quickly.  Hasnt happened yet. Bit of a tweener—not really
a 4 nor a 3 but has good scoring ability and overall skill. Is he a starter or
strong second unit guy? The coming weeks/months will give Coach Rick Adelman and
GM David Kahn a better sense of what needs to happen next with him. A lot to
work with here; just have to put him in a role that brings out his best play. ’
