Teammates exchange punches in dugout, Royals regroup for win


Sep. 12, 2006
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports



CLEVELAND -- Kansas City pitcher Runelvys Hernandez and catcher John Buck exchanged punches in the dugout Tuesday night, but the Royals regrouped for a 5-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians in the 1,000th game at Jacobs Field.

After striking out Ryan Garko with two runners on to end the third inning, Hernandez (6-9) jogged to the dugout, pointed at Buck and began yelling. The players charged each other and began throwing punches before being separated by teammates and coaches.

Both players remained in the game, and Hernandez allowed three runs over five innings to earn the win. He helped Kansas City snap an 11-game losing streak at Jacobs Field, where the Indians are 570-430 since the ballpark opened in 1994. The Royals had not won in Cleveland since July 20, 2005.

Esteban German went 4-for-4 and scored three times for the Royals. He doubled leading off the ninth, went to third on a foul out and scored on a throwing error by right fielder Shin-Soo Choo to make it 5-3.

German is batting .351 (39-for-111) in his last 43 games following a 2-for-27 (.074) streak.

Joe Nelson pitched the ninth for his seventh save as the Royals got their 23rd road win, surpassing last year's total. Mark Grudzielanek drove in two runs and Buck hit an RBI single.

Indians starter Jeremy Sowers (7-4) gave up four runs and seven hits over five innings in his first loss since July 16 and final start of the season. The 23-year-old rookie is being shut down to avoid too much work after pitching a combined 185 2/3 innings between Triple-A Buffalo and Cleveland.

The left-hander went 9-1 with a 1.39 ERA at Buffalo before being called up on June 24. The four runs Tuesday were the most he yielded in any of his 10 starts since July 22. During that time, he went 6-1 with a 2.33 ERA.

Grudzielanek and Buck had RBI singles in the first inning to put the Royals ahead 2-0.

In the second, Garko was hit in the left elbow by a pitch from Hernandez, but plate umpire Gary Darling did not award him first base. Darling called the pitch a ball, saying Garko didn't try to get out of the way. Garko eventually walked and later scored on a single by Jhonny Peralta to make it 2-1.

Hernandez allowed eight hits and was helped by some solid defense. The Royals' infield turned double plays in each of the first two innings. In the third, left fielder German and center fielder David DeJesus both made nice catches against the wall to take away possible extra-base hits.

German had an RBI triple and scored on single by Grudzielanek to make it 4-1 in the fourth.

Cleveland got single runs in the fourth and fifth on a fielder's choice RBI by Joe Inglett and Garko's run-scoring single to make it 4-3.
Notes

Cleveland's Casey Blake had a stolen base taken away in the sixth when Peralta struck out and was called for interfering with Buck's throw. ... Indians DH Travis Hafner had his broken right hand re-examined and said doctors told him he will not need surgery. He's out for the season. ... Sowers held opponents to two or fewer runs in nine of his 14 starts this season.

Saw a little clip on KCTV5 and Elvis was saying something like "F**k you! F**k you!" And Buck enters the camera and they both go at it, swinging like a bunch of girls, before they were separated.

Too funny. LMAO

They were saying on one of the Royals boards that Denny Matthews had been saying the Royals were unhappy with Elvis' pitch selection in recent starts. That might have had something to do with it.

Well, at least they won the game, surprisingly. Most teams tend to meltdown after that.

Glad to see the Wranglers winning today.

Its commendable that they both were able to put their differences aside, go back in the game and get the job done. Amazing.

Unhappy? He has been awesome his last few outings.

I would say Buck was trying to call off what Elvys wanted. Buck I think has a problem with that. I remember last year him coming out to the mound to talk to Mac and Buddy Bell yelling at him "Let him throw what he wants!"

Wouldn't suprise me anyway

Bell and Elvis are both wrong. The catcher calls the game. Not even the manager, technically, is supposed to overrule him while the catcher is behind the plate. Elvis challenged Bucks pitch selection. It's like a WR back talking a QB in the huddle. You just don't do it. It sets a bad precedent. :shake:
Buck should have knocked his ass out.

Traditionaly I would agree with you. But in this case I will not. We are talking about John Buck. Not Jorge Posada or Pudge Boy

Especially when a catcher may be calling pitches the pitcher isn't feeling confident with.

Given that fact that Bell, FatElvys, and you are the same side of an argument, I'll take my chances and go with Buck.

They won today. Awesome play by Grudz again, backhanding a grounder, and flipped the ball from his glove to the SS to start a DP.
