>>5-Run Rally Gives Royals 5-4 Win Over Brewers

(Milwaukee, WI)  —  Normally-unhittable lefty reliever Josh Hader gave up a bases-loaded single in the middle of a five-run seventh inning for Kansas City Wednesday night.  The Royals then withstood Milwaukee’s ninth-inning rally for a 5-4 victory.  The soft-hitting Royals scored more than four runs for the first time in 19 games.  Milwaukee led 1-0 when Kansas City’s Mike Moustakas touched starter Brent Suter for a homer leading off the seventh.  Suter wound up taking his fifth loss of the season.  Junior Guerra starts for Milwaukee tonight (Thursday) in the first of a four-game series against the red-hot Cincinnati Reds who have won 12 out of their last 15 games.


>>Tigers Fire Pitching Coach Bosio For “Insensitive Comments”

(Detroit, MI)  —  Detroit Tigers pitching coach Chris Bosio is out of a job after comments he made to a team employee.  Neither the club nor Bosio has been specific about what he said.  Tigers management says it has zero tolerance for “this type of behavior.”  Bosio stirred things up in Milwaukee last year when he suggested Eric Thames might be using performance-enhancing drugs.  The majority of his career in the major leagues was spent as a starting pitcher for the Brewers from 1986-to-1992.

>>Work On Bucks New Arena 99% Complete
