KANSAS CITY Duane Kuiper Jersey , Mo. (AP) — While the Kansas City Royals overcame the weather, Toronto Blue Jays starter Sam Gaviglio was unable to overcome a fourth-inning balk.Lucas Duda homered, Rosell Herrera had three hits and the Royals beat the Blue Jays 6-2 after a long rain delay Thursday night to split their four-game series.Royals relievers Brian Flynn, Kevin McCarthy, Brandon Maurer and Wily Peralta shut down Toronto on three hits over the final five innings. Flynn (3-3) picked up the win with a scoreless inning.“Difficult circumstances, really,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “Long wait, waiting out the rain. We weren’t sure we were going to play. It just kept building up, building up and then it started dying down. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen.“The bullpen did a good job of holding the fort and a good job by our hitters with four two-out hits to give us the lead.”Kansas City took the lead with a three-run fourth highlighted by Jorge Bonifacio’s RBI triple.Gaviglio (2-6) failed to make it through five innings for the eighth time in his past 13 starts. He allowed five runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.The right-hander came unraveled after a balk call and a delay of more than five minutes in the fourth. He attempted a pickoff throw, but the ball slipped out of his hand. After the umpires huddled, Herrera was awarded second base. There was also a replay review to confirm the balk http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-ahmed-jersey , which took 4 minutes, 1 second.Following the long delay, Gaviglio yielded three straight run-producing hits.“I thought it was a balk, from my point of view,” Gaviglio said.He said the delay did not cause him problems.“I just kind of got a little up in the zone, didn’t make very good pitches,” Gaviglio said.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Gaviglio is unable to get away with elevated pitches.“He’s been getting hit around a little bit lately, primarily because he gets a lot of pitches up in the zone,” Gibbons said. “That’s not his style. He can’t do that. “Danny Jansen’s sacrifice fly in the second scored Teoscar Hernandez with the first Toronto run.Kendrys Morales singled home Justin Smoak in the fourth with the final Blue Jays run.Glenn Sparkman, who was making his first big league start, was removed after four innings and 75 pitches. He gave up two runs and four hits.Rain delayed the start for 2 hours Jake Lamb Jersey , 14 minutes — the third straight day that bad weather held up the first pitch.“It was a little different,” Sparkman said. “I definitely wasn’t ready for it. I got a cup of coffee, got warmed back up and went out there.”MATIAS’ SEASON OVEROF Seuly Matias, who leads the minor leagues with 31 homers for short-season Class A Burlington, went on the disabled list with a cut thumb. “It was an accident with the bus baggage door, just a freak accident, putting his bag in the bus on the way to Hagerstown,” Royals director of operations Alec Zumwalt said. “He sliced his thumb. It’s to the point where we’re just going to stop him for the season and get him ready for the instructional league. He’s not a guy we’re going to rush back, and make sure he’s at 100 percent.” Matias went 2 for 3 with a home run in the All-Star Futures Game last month in Washington.NOT CLUTCHRoyals 3B Hunter Dozier is 4 for 46 (.087) with runners in scoring position. He has come to bat with 65 men in scoring position and has six RBIs with only one extra-base hit. “It’s not really conducive to scoring runs, but that’s not going to stop me from playing him and letting him work through that,” Yost said.ROSTER MOVEThe Royals sent minor league LHP Kelvin Gonzalez to the Texas Rangers for a $250 http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-robbie-ray-jersey ,000 international bonus allocation. Gonzalez, 20, was 0-2 with a 4.19 ERA and one save with Burlington.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (left calf tightness) is running the bases at the Dunedin, Florida, complex with no issues. … INF-OF Brandon Drury (broken left hand) will receive follow-up imaging Friday in New York to assess his healing.Royals: RHP Ian Kennedy (strained left oblique) threw a 25-pitch simulated game. He is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game Monday at the Royals’ complex in Surprise, Arizona. … LHP Danny Duffy (shoulder impingement) will begin throwing off a flat surface Friday for the first time since going on the disabled list Sunday. … OF Brian Goodwin (left groin strain) went 0 for 3 with two walks in his first rehab game with Triple-A Omaha.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman (4-8, 5.03 ERA) starts Friday in the series opener at Yankee Stadium.Royals: RHP Jakob Junis (6-11, 4.82) is scheduled to pitch Friday against the White Sox in Chicago to open a seven-game trip. TORONTO (AP) — Add Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez to the list of big leaguers to suffer suitcase-related injuries this season.Sanchez acknowledged Wednesday that the bruised right index finger that has sidelined him for the past two months occurred when his finger got caught in a falling suitcase. The incident happened June 21, hours before Sanchez took the mound in Los Angeles against the Angels with about 180 friends and family from his hometown of Barstow, California, in the crowd.“It got stuck in my suitcase and it started falling Jeff Mathis Jersey ,” Sanchez said. “It all happened in a span of about 30 seconds. I said ‘Ow,’ and my knuckle got super fat. I pitched that day, probably didn’t help, but it was the first time I was going to pitch in front of my family as a professional and I wanted to see what I could do.”The 2016 AL ERA champion, Sanchez allowed two runs and two hits in a 25-pitch first inning that night before being replaced. After making three minor league rehab starts, he will throw a side session Thursday in Toronto. If that goes well, Sanchez will be activated off the 60-day disabled list to start against Philadelphia on Saturday.Sanchez (3-5, 3.52) said part of the reason he stayed quiet about his injury was the attention Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez received for spraining the medial collateral ligament in his left knee while carrying a suitcase up the stairs in his home just before opening day. Perez did not return until April 24.“I didn’t want to say it then because I saw Salvador Perez go down with the same injury and I didn’t want to get laughed at,” Sanchez said.This isn’t Sanchez’s first struggle with an injury to his pitching hand. He endured multiple stints on the disabled list because of blister and fingernail issues last season, pitching just 36 innings over eight starts.
