Caney Bullpup Shatters Kansas State Baseball Record



With high school baseball’s regular season winding down. The Caney Valley Bullpups are currently playing its best ball. The Bullpups have won six consecutive games including a 17-1 walloping of Neodesha on Monday.


Caney also boasts arguably the best player in the area in Junior Jace Kaminska, who has committed to Wichita State University. On Thursday, Kaminska threw a five-inning perfect game in an 11-0 victory over Field Kindley High School in which he struck out all 15 batters. This continues a streak of 32 consecutive strikeouts carrying over from two previous outings, including another game in which he recorded 15 strikeouts over five innings shattering the previous record. According to the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, the previous record was 12 consecutive punchouts which was set in 1953.


Bullpups look to continue their dominance as they currently sit at 11-3 on the season.


Two Days of Good News for Chiefs Fans


Some good news coming to Kansas City Chiefs fans the last two days. Yesterday the team added more to a defense that needed to see some improvement from last year when they traded for Seattle Seahawks Frank Clark. KC sent this years first round pick and next years second round pick and they will swap this year's third round pick with Seattle. The Chiefs also signed Clark to a 5 year $105.5 million extension moments after the trade was announced.


This afternoon the Chiefs got more good news as the Johnson County District Attorney announced that he would not be filing charges against the star wide receiver Tyreek Hill in the child abuse case.

Royals/White Sox Benches Clear


Tempers flare in Chicago as the Royals and White Sox had a benches clearing incident in the bottom of the 6th inning. In the bottom of the 4th inning Chicago Shortstop Tim Anderson hit a two run home run and had a nice bat flip to celebrate which Royals Pitcher Brad Keller didn't seem to appreciate too much. In Anderson's next at bat Keller hit him with a pitch resulting in the benches clearing.


Things got pretty heated between the two mangers as well Ned Yost and Rick Renteria. Brad Keller saw his first career ejection and Tim Anderson his 4th. The game still goes one and you can tune in on Start 98.9 KQQF.

Royals 3 Game Win Streak


Walk-off win completes the series sweep of the Cleveland Indians. It was pitching that did it in the first two games only allowing 1 run combined in both games, which was a welcomed sight for most Royals fans.  It was the bats in the finale of the series scoring 9 runs, hitting three home runs(Duda, Merrifield and Soler) and the walk off single by Hunter Dozier scoring Terrance Gore in the bottom of the 9th. 


KC now on a three game win streak heads to Chicago to take on the White Sox tomorrow pregame at 6:30 first pitch 7:15 on the Mighty 690 KGGF.

One Streak Ends, Another Continues


Another blown save for Royals closer Brad Boxberger as Kansas City falls to Seattle 7-6 in the 10th. Boxberger's ERA is up to 9.95 with an 0-2 record on the year. Whit Merrifield's hitting streak came to an end as he went 0-6 on the afternoon and while that streak ended KC's losing streak continued they've now lost 10 straight games.


It doesn't get any easier as the 8-4 Cleveland Indians come to town tomorrow pregame at 6:30 and first pitch at 7:15 on the Mighty 690 KGGF.

Royals Hit Streak Record Broken


Not a lot has gone right for the Royals this season after winning their first two games.  However, second baseman Whit Merriefield entered tonight’s games on a 30 game hit streak dating back to last season. He needed one hit to break the franchise record.  In the 7th inning he laid down an RBI bunt single that tied the game and broke the record. 


Unfortunately for the Royals they gave up the go ahead run in the top of the 9th and couldn’t get a run across with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th losing 6-5.  Now at a nine game losing streak they finish the series against the Mariners tomorrow with pregame at 11:30 and first pitch at 12:15 on Star 98.9 KQQF.

Royals Pitching Woes Continue


The Royals dropped their 8th straight game last night as Kansas City fell to the Seattle Mariners 6 – 3 at Kauffman Stadium.  The Royals pitching woes continued as Kansas City gave up 15 hits to Seattle.  In one of the lone bright spots of the night Whit Merrifield extended his hit streak to 30 games.


The Royals face baseball’s hottest team again this evening as they take on Seattle in their 3rd of a 4 game series.  First pitch is scheduled for 7:15.  Tune for the Pre-Game Show at 6:30 on the Mighty 690 KGGF.  

Royals Pitching Proves Problematic

Although they managed to score 5 runs on 10 hits it was not enough for the Kansas City Royals to stop the Seattle Mariners.  Once again pitching proved to be a sore spot for the Royals as they gave up 5 home runs as the Mariners put a  13 – 5 whoppin’ on the Royals.


The Royals host the Mariners again tonight with the first pitch set for 7:15.  Join us for the Pre-Game Show at 6:30 tonight on KGGF 690AM.
