Games like Guthrie's last -- allowing four home runs and 11 runs in one inning pitched -- can't be expected as the norm for the Royals starter, but he has given up six or more hits and two or more runs in five appearances on the road this season.

Hammel made a late adjustment in his last start vs. D-backs, who were jumping on his first pitch. He did not give up a hit after the third inning, but it was too late and he took the loss. He's 1-3 with a 4.99 ERA in eight career games vs. Royals.
