For one night, the Kansas City Royals bucked their season-long trend of giving up homers and not being able to hit them.

Junis has allowed 11 homers in 56 1/3 innings but has minimized the damage. He’s fanned four hitters for every walk and has cut his WHIP down from 1.281 as a rookie to 1.083 this year, enabling him to be the team’s only starting pitcher with an earned run average under 5.00.

This will be his first appearance against St. Louis, but he is 2-0 in three career interleague starts with an earned run average of 2.95.

The Cardinals will counter with Michael Tuomo Ruutu Jersey Wacha (5-1, 3.08), who is 5-0 over his last eight starts, including a 12-4 win on Friday night over Philadelphia. Wacha overcame rainy conditions to tie a season high with eight strikeouts over six innings, yielding five hits, two runs and two walks.

Definitely frustrating, Chatwood said after the game Tuesday night. One at-bat I’ll feel really good, then the next one I feel like I’m fighting myself.

The same goes from start to start. Chatwood was coming off a two-walk, one-run performance against the high-scoring Braves but could not follow it up with another good one. It has been maddening to watch and probably to manage.

He has a busy delivery, manager Joe Maddon said. It’s kind of busy what he does with his hands. It’s something he’s done for a while. It’s not like you can just change it easily because that’s how his arm works. That’s how his body works. You saw it the other day, when it’s on time how good it can be. When it’s out of sorts a bit, all of a sudden, it becomes shotgun.

It was raining the entire game, which can make it a little tough, he said to mlb.com. I tried to continue to make my pitches and not worry about the slick mound.

It was the 50th career win for Wacha, who is 3-1 in five career outings against the Royals with a 2.81 ERA, including a win last August. He owns a 28-12 career record at home and has won all four of his decisions there this year.
