David Phelps struggled through another start Saturday, giving up seven runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Royals.

The Royals might have knocked him out in the second, except Mike Moustakas decided to sac bunt after the first four batters got hits. It didn't even work, as Phelps got the lead runner at third. Another hit followed and then Norichika Aoki hit a liner to center that hung up long enough to be turned into the second out. The Royals settled for three runs then, but they came back with four in the sixth before Phelps was replaced. Phelps has now lost four straight starts, with each outing getting progressively worse. His rotation spot might come up for grabs.
