KANSAS CITY http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-jersey , Mo. (AP) — e career, one that’s had him on base more often than in the batter’s box.In an era marked by big swingers and advanced analytics, Gore showed Sunday that a speed specialist can have plenty of value in the late innings.The pinch-running extraordinaire stole a base and then scored on Hunter Dozier’s single in the ninth, lifting the Kansas City Royals over the Cleveland Indians 9-8 to complete a three-game sweep of the AL Central favorites.Ryan O’Hearn led off the ninth with a walk against Brad Hand (0-1) and was replaced by Gore. He swiped second and advanced to third on a throwing error by catcher Roberto Perez, and Dozier then singled to left for Kansas City’s first walk-off win of the season.“I looked at (Hand) before I went out there and saw his pickoff move,” Gore said with a wide smile. “I found the key to go on. I found a good pitch to go on. I saw the ball trickle out to center, and me being aggressive. I went for third.”The Royals were questioned in spring training about using a roster spot for an almost one-dimensional player, but manager Ned Yost said Sunday is good evidence for Gore’s value.“My whole mindset was ‘Find a way on.’ If you get on, I felt like we were going to win,” Yost said. “We had Gore ready to pinch-run as early as the seventh.“I don’t know which was more crucial, Dozier’s hit or O’Hearn’s walk,” Yost added. “Probably O’Hearn’s walk, because without that, Dozier’s hit was just a single.”Gore has 31 stolen bases and taken just 25 at-bats in six major league seasons.“That’s why they have Gore sitting over there,” Indians manager Terry Francona said.The Indians had not been swept in a road series of at least three games since May 4-6, 2018, at Yankee Stadium.The Royals roughed up two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber, who allowed 11 of his 18 batters to reach base safely. He gave up six runs Paul Molitor Jersey , six hits and a career-most five walks in just 2 2/3 innings. The five walks doubled Kluber’s season total — he didn’t walk more than three batters in any game in 2018.“He started getting under some pitches,” Francona said. “I know he knew it, but he had a hard time self-correcting. He just hasn’t gotten to the point yet where he’s a consistent Kluber. He will, and we’ll all be thrilled. It’s still a work in progress. Even when your last name’s Kluber, sometimes it’s still a work in progress.”Royals starter Jakob Junis gave up five runs and eight hits through 6 1/3 innings.Lucas Duda, Whit Merrifield and Jorge Soler homered for Kansas City. Duda had two hits and four RBIs.Leonys Martin hit his second leadoff homer in five days for Cleveland during a three-run first inning. Martin had three hits, and Jake Bauers had two hits, including a tying two-run single to cap a three-run rally in the seventh.Wily Peralta (1-1) pitched the top of the ninth.TRAINER’S ROOMIndians: SS Francisco Lindor left to join Triple-A Columbus in Louisville for a rehab assignment. Francona said before Sunday’s game that Cleveland wanted to “give him one more day of back-to-back-to-back.” Lindor has not played this season, due to a right calf strain and a left ankle sprain.Royals: CF Billy Hamilton was not in the starting lineup, but manager Ned Yost said he “absolutely would be available” to play defense if necessary, but probably not to pinch run. He has a mild MCL sprain and a bone bruise on his left knee suffered when he crashed into the wall Thursday. Hamilton did not play.ROSTER NEWSThe Indians selected the contract of OF Carlos Gonzalez from Triple-A Columbus. He batted third and went 1 for 5.In a corresponding move, RHP Jefry Rodriguez was optioned to Columbus. Indians IF Brad Miller said he was designated for assignment, but the club did not announce it officially, or mention a corresponding move.UP NEXTIndians RHP Trevor Bauer (1-1, 2.29 ERA) will face Seattle’s Yusei Kikuchi (0-0, 4.15 ERA) when the Indians open a three-game series.Royals RHP Heath Fillmyer (0-0, 15.00 ERA) will pitch as the Royals open a three-game series against the White Sox in Chicago. Former Royal Ervin Santana (0-1, 17.18 ERA) will take the mound for the White Sox.

And you can search MLB.com’s video page for those... wait, what do you mean you can’t do that anymore?All that is just the introduction to the linked article above, written by Joe Lucia on Awful Announcing, posted Wednesday.And it’s all true — and folks you know have noticed this. Read the article and you’ll see tweets from former SB Nation writer Grant Brisbee, now with the Athletic, noting that he couldn’t search for videos he was specifically looking for.I did some poking around. You can still find videos from past games. Here, for example, are video highlights from that great comeback win over the Mariners July 31, 2016. But going back from years previous, it’s hit-or-miss. Some games have highlights available, some have pages where you see highlights listed, but nothing happens when you click on them (here’s a 2011 game, for example, where that happens).And in any case, to find the highlight from a specific game you now have to know the date of the game and plow through past schedules to find it Justin Smoak Jersey , instead of being able to do a simple search. It appears that on the Cubs Video Highlights page on their website, the “Editors’ Picks” go back only a little more than a week. These are the categories you can click on via that highlights page:Some of those are helpful, I guess, but again, there’s no search function. So maybe there’s another way to find the video you want? Joe Lucia tried:And tried some more:This is exactly what’s wrong with baseball’s approach to younger fans. I have written about this before, but the single most important thing MLB could do to appeal to millennial fans (and fans of other ages, too) is to make it easier to find and share video highlights and GIFs. Instead, they are making it more difficult. They seem to think that things like this will engage fans:I don’t know about you, but my reaction to that (and the other things at that link) is: Yawn. Just let me tweet or Facebook or Snapchat a highlight or GIF! This Business Insider article from May 2018 explains how the NBA does it right, quoting NBA commissioner Adam Silver:I mean, this is not a difficult concept to understand, yet Rob Manfred and his battery of lawyers seem to think that putting MLB videos into a little box and making it harder to find and/or share them is working for them, for a reason that I cannot fathom. Manfred and his henchmen are making all kinds of proposals and adjustments to “pace of play,” apparently thinking that “faster-paced games” are the way to engage younger fans.That’s not it at all, Rob. Just give people access to video highlights and the ability to freely share them on social media. The quote from Adam Silver above is the answer. Why MLB can’t figure this out is beyond me.#FreeMLBVideoNow
