Wang Chien-ming turned in mixed results as a starting pitcher for the Royals in the final game of the Big League Weekend exhibition series at the Alamodome on Sunday as the Rangers topped the Royals, 13-6
Wang struck out the side in the first inning with movement and location as a commentator said of his performance.
But Wang experienced trouble in the next, yielding three hits, including a two-run homer to Robinson Chirinos that cleared the modest right-field wall.
In his previous four outings, he held opponents to one earned run on six hits over six innings, with five strikeouts.
“[Wang] threw fine,” Royals manager Ned Yost was quoted as saying by MLB.com. “He had three strikeouts, that’s more than breezing through it. Then the second inning, we made an error and then a little a fly ball that probably wouldn’t have been 20 feet from the warning track goes out for a two-run homer.” [FULL STORY]
