Royals fall to Tigers 4

DETROIT (AP) Joakim Soria allowed Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s two run homer in the bottom of the ninth, and the Royals lost 4 2 to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday. Kansas City is now eight games behind the AL Central leading Indians, whom the Royals will host in a three game series starting Monday night.The defending World Series champions lost two of three at Detroit. After Tyler Collins hit a leadoff single, Saltalamacchia won it with a homer off Soria (3 4) that easily cleared the wall in right.”That was an inside fastball, right where I wanted it, but he’s a professional baseball player, too, and he hit it hard,” Soria said. “You don’t want to lose, but I made the pitch I wanted and he hit nfl jerseys Nothing you can do about that.”Those were the only two RBIs of the day for Detroit, which scored its first two runs of the game on a balk and a wild pitch.Francisco Rodriguez (1 0) pitched a perfect top of the ninth for the win.Detroit rookie Michael Fulmer allowed two runs and six hits in eight innings. Kansas City starter Yordano Ventura allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings.The Royals led 2 0 when Detroit began chipping away in the third. With the bases loaded and one out, Ventura struck out Miguel Cabrera, but with Victor Martinez up, the Kansas City right hander was called for a balk, allowing a run to score.”There was nothing close to a balk on that play,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They told us that it was a non stop issue, but he stopped for more than a second, so I don’t know what threw them off. We should have been up 2 1 in the ninth with Wade (Davis) on the mound.”Ventura struck out Martinez to end the third, but with two outs in the sixth, he gave up a drive to the gap in right center by Nick Castellanos that became a triple when the Royals had issues getting the ball back in. Castellanos came home on a wild pitch.

Royals gifted everything from diamonds to dog toys in Canada

William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were showered with at least 200 gifts during their nine day, post wedding trip to Canada last summer including a blanket and a bottle of booze from Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

A list of all the presents received by the couple on their Canadian tour, which took place from June 30 to July 8, has been released by Clarence House, the royal administrative centre and official London residence of Prince Charles.

Listed among the 150 separate entries are all of the high profile, official gifts from Canadian political representatives, perhaps most notably the diamond encrusted, polar bear themed brooch and cuff links given to Will and Kate by then Northwest Territories premier Floyd Roland.

But the list also includes presents accepted informally by the Duke and Duchess from ordinary citizens who lined up to meet the couple at one of the dozens of public appearances they made in Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Charlottetown, Yellowknife, Calgary and elsewhere.

Among those items were “two children’s drawings,” “dog toy,” “rock sample,” “rag doll,” “cowboy hats” and “newspaper cuttings.”

In many cases, a single entry on the list included several objects.

Along with the “woollen blanket” and “bottle of whiskey” that Harper gave to Canada’s future king and queen, for example, the prime minister also handed the couple a framed photograph, two jackets, an unknown number of “souvenir edition Canadian magazines” and a Canadian flag.

Gov. Gen. David Johnston presented the visiting newlyweds with a quilt and a “commemorative album.”

Prince William, a search and rescue helicopter pilot, received a “flying helmet” from the Royal Canadian Air Force and a knife from the Canadian Ranger Patrol.

Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird gave the Duchess of Cambridge “three pairs of shoes.”

Other notable gifts for the couple included “two mosquito traps” from Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq, “two sports shirts” from Defence Minister Peter MacKay, a soapstone sculpture from Quebec Premier Jean Charest and “caribou antler snow goggles” from someone identified only as “individual.”
