DETROIT -- Alex Gordons grounder up the middle looked like a routine out -- until it hit second base and took a wacky bounce, allowing the games first run to score. With breaks like that, its no wonder the Kansas City Royals have won 10 in a row. Omar Infante added a solo homer and Jeremy Guthrie pitched impressively into the seventh inning, helping the Royals extend their longest winning streak in 20 years with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. Kansas City has outpitched, outhit and outfielded the Tigers in taking the first three games of this series -- so the Royals have no reason to apologize for a little luck along the way. "Baseballs a funny game -- youve got to take full advantage of those," Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer said. "Were not complaining about it either." The AL Central-leading Royals have not won this many games in a row since a run of 14 in 1994. They extended their division lead over the Tigers to 1 1/2 games. Guthrie (4-6) allowed four hits and struck out nine in 6 2-3 innings. Drew Smyly (3-6) nearly matched him, but the Detroit left-hander was victimized by Gordons fluky RBI single in the first inning and Infantes homer in the fifth. J.D. Martinez homered off Guthrie in the seventh, but the Kansas City bullpen got the last seven outs, with Greg Holland pitching the ninth for his 21st save in 22 chances. Kansas City will try for a four-game sweep of the Tigers on Thursday. The Royals began the series by pounding star right-handers Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, then Guthrie took the mound and breezed through the team that has won the last three division titles. "This could be the best game hes thrown all year," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. "He was fabulous. ... We had to go back to our old way of doing things -- pitching and defence." It was Guthries second straight game with nine strikeouts -- he also reached the mark June 13 against the Chicago White Sox. He had some help Wednesday from his fielders, as Gordon saved a run in the fourth with a diving catch in left-centre. "Im not that fast, but I can turn it on when I want to," the Kansas City left fielder said. Fortune seemed to favour the Royals throughout the afternoon. With a runner on second in the first, Gordons two-out bouncer up the middle looked like a groundout to the shortstop, but it ricocheted off second base for a hit, allowing Hosmer to come home. In the second, Detroits Victor Martinez dropped a nice bunt against a shifted defence, only to have the ball roll foul inches before reaching third base. J.D. Martinez homered in the seventh, and Nick Castellanos nearly tied it later in the inning with a two-out drive to left that bounced off the fence for a double. Kelvin Herrera relieved Guthrie and retired Don Kelly on a lineout to centre. Wade Davis struck out the side in the eighth, and Holland made it through the ninth after allowing a leadoff single to Miguel Cabrera. Smyly allowed two runs and seven hits in seven-plus innings. He struck out six without a walk. The Tigers have lost 20 of 29 to fall out of first place. During his postgame news conference, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus replied sarcastically to a question about how his mood is when he heads home after these tough defeats. "I beat my wife," Ausmus said, clearly trying to joke. "Im just kidding around. No, luckily my wife and kids are fantastic. I do get a little mopey at home, but my wife and kids are good." About a minute later, without being prompted, Ausmus said he was sorry. "I didnt want to make light of battered women," the first-year manager said. "I didnt mean to make light of that, so I apologize for that if that offended anyone." NOTES: Kansas City OF Nori Aoki (groin) and Detroit OF Torii Hunter (hamstring) did not play. ... Royals C Salvador Perez extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a ninth-inning single. ... Detroit 2B Ian Kinsler made a nice diving stop on Infantes grounder in the third. ... Kansas City LHP Danny Duffy (4-5) faces Detroit RHP Anibal Sanchez (3-2) on Thursday. Adam Humphries Buccaneers Jersey. -- LaMarcus Aldridge returned to the Trail Blazers lineup, happy to know that things didnt go awry without him. Mike Alstott Buccaneers Jersey. -- New York Yankees centre fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was sent for an MRI Thursday of his ailing right calf, which was negative. Anything less than gold for either nation is considered a disappointment.   Yet for Switzerland, advancing to the semifinal might be a victory in itself. Warren Sapp Buccaneers - Semyon Varlamov more than earned his third shutout of the season as he made a career-high 54 saves to lift the Colorado Avalanche to a 2-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday. Austin Seferian-Jenkins Buccaneers Jersey. Globo TV and other news outlets said early Monday that Scolari will not remain as coach after the national teams failure to win the World Cup at home.Three quarters of the way through the 2012 Major League Baseball season, some of the award races are starting to shake out, but many remain up for grabs, which should make for a fascinating finish to the year. The story of the year, from an individual standpoint, has to be Angels centre fielder Mike Trout, the recently-turned-21-year-old, who has been the games top prospect for the last couple seasons while hes been in the minors and then he showed up in the majors and exceeded all expectations. While Trouts overall contribution cant be ignored, the Angels slide out of a playoff spot doesnt help his cause, particularly among old-school voters that like team results to dictate individual award recognition. As such, runners-up Miguel Cabrera and Robinson Cano both have a chance to get to the postseason and have the numbers to deserve consideration. In the National League, there isnt a runaway candidate, but Andrew McCutchen appears to have the edge and some of the most viable challengers are also on non-playoff contenders. Here is my look at some individual awards, including Gold Gloves, All-Surprise and All-Disappointing teams heading into the final quarter of the 2012 season. AL MVP Mike Trout, CF, L.A. Angels of Anaheim (24 HR, 70 RBI, 39 SB, .344 AVG, 1.014 OPS) Runners Up: Miguel Cabrera, 3B, Detroit (31 HR, 105 RBI, .328 AVG, .980 OPS) Robinson Cano, 2B, N.Y. Yankees (25 HR, 68 RBI, .302 AVG, .899 OPS) Early in the season, it looked like Josh Hamilton would run away with the award, but a midseason slump leaves him as a contender for runner-up and rookie Mike Trout has just been so off-the-charts that its tough to pick anyone else, even if the Angels, as a team, havent performed up to expectations. NL MVP Andrew McCutchen, CF, Pittsburgh (24 HR, 76 RBI, .350 AVG, .999 OPS) Runners-Up: David Wright, 3B, N.Y. Mets (16 HR, 75 RBI, .320 AVG, .930 OPS) Ryan Braun, LF, Milwaukee (33 HR, 83 RBI, .304 AVG, .969 OPS) Joey Votto had a stranglehold for this until he got hurt and has now missed five weeks of action, making it tough to stay on top of the competition. Coincidence or not, it probably didnt help Vottos case any when the Reds went on a tear following his injury. Melky Cabrera might have been a contender for a runner-up spot but, well, the synthetic testosterone appears to be problematic. From those remaining, McCutchen has played like the star that he is, carrying the Pirates to playoff contention and whethey they make it or not, McCutchen has probably done enough to deserve the honour. AL CY YOUNG Felix Hernandez, Seattle (12-5, 2.54 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 179 K, 187 2/3 IP) Runners Up: Justin Verlander, Detroit (12-7, 2.53 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 180 K, 181 2/3 IP) David Price, Tampa Bay (16-4, 2.28 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 167 K, 170 IP) This race has become much closer, and Hernandezs perfect game was enough to vault him ahead of Verlander (not because he threw a perfect game, but the overall result in his stats following the game), but it could see-saw between them down the stretch. David Price has been great too and if pitcher wins get attention -- even when they shouldnt -- then Price might steal the votes. NL CY YOUNG Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles (11-7, 2.87 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 175 K, 178 2/3 IP) Runners-Up: R.A. Dickey, N.Y. Mets (15-4, 2.82, 1.03 WHIP, 181 K, 175 1/3 IP) Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco (14-7, 2.83 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 160 K, 171 1/3 IP) Another race that should be close. Dickey, the 37-year-old journeyman knuckleballer would be a better story than Kershaw, but if the Dodgers are pushing for a playoff spot and Kershaw is doing what he has been doing for the past couple seasons, there is a good chance for the 24-year-old ace to get the nod. Washingtons Gio Gonzalez and Stephen Strasburg deserve some mention, but Strasburgs limited workload holds him back from being ranked at the top of the league. AL ROOKIE OF THE YEARMike Trout, CF, L.A. Angels of Anaheim (24 HR, 70 RBI, 39 SB, .344 AVG, 1.014 OPS) Runners Up: Yoenis Cespedes, CF, Oakland (16 HR, 60 RBI, .303 AVG, .878 OPS) Jarrod Parker, RHP, Oakland (8-7, 3.48 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 97 K, 129 IP) There is no competition here and thats not a slight on Cespedes or Parker, both of whom have been very good, but Trout is in another world. NL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Todd Frazier, 3B, Cincinnati (18 HR, 55 RBI, .294 AVG, .913 OPS) Runners-Up: Zack Cozart, SS, Cincinnati (14 HR, 30 RBI, .252 AVG, .712 OPS) Norichika Aoki, RF, Milwaukee (6 HR, 30 RBI, 18 SB, .282 AVG, .755 OPS) Its more of an open field in the National League, though it does appear that Todd Frazier, the 26-year-old utility man who has found playing time at the corner infield spots for the Reds, providing unexpected power, iis the leader.dddddddddddd Bryce Harper, while tremendous for a 19-year-old, has slumped and doesnt warrant the award unless he finishes with a flourish. GOLD GLOVESC - Yadier Molina, St. LouisRunners-Up: Miguel Montero, Arizona; Carlos Ruiz, Philadelphia Steady as she goes; the same trio as the midpoint of the season and Molina is perennially the games best defensive backstop. 1B - Adrian Gonzalez, Boston Runners-Up: Mark Teixeira, N.Y. Yankees; Casey Kotchman, Cleveland A disappointing year at the plate hasnt hurt Gonzalez in the field and Kotchman is nothing if not accomplished with the glove. San Franciscos Brandon Belt isnt too shabby in the field, either. 2B - Darwin Barney, Chicago Cubs Runners-Up: Dustin Ackley, Seattle; Dustin Pedroia, Boston Robinson Cano could be a viable runner-up as well, but Barney, Ackley and Pedroia have all excelled in both Ultimate Zone Rating and Defensive Runs Saved. 3B - Brett Lawrie, Toronto Runners-Up: Brandon Inge, Oakland; Adrian Beltre, Texas Health could cost Lawrie this spot by seasons end, but his edge in Defensive Runs Saved keeps him ahead of a whole host of quality fielders at the hot corner. In addition to Inge and Beltre, Placido Polanco, Mike Moustakas and David Wright are all worthy candidates. SS - Brendan Ryan, SeattleRunners-Up: Yunel Escobar, Toronto; J.J. Hardy, Baltimore This trio has been established at the top of the position for much of the season. If not for getting injured, Braves rookie Andrelton Simmons might have had more to say about this. Maybe next year. LF - Desmond Jennings, Tampa Bay Runners-Up: Alex Gordon, Kansas City; Martin Prado, Atlanta The numbers in left field suggest that Alfonso Soriano should be a contender, which seems unlikely, and Pittsburghs Alex Presley has been pretty good too, but Jennings and Gordon are above the rest. CF - Mike Trout, L.A. Angels of Anaheim Runners-Up: Michael Bourn, Atlanta; Craig Gentry, Texas Its no surprise that Trout, with his speed, has the range to be a dominant centre fielder and hes already the best in the business. Jon Jay, Chris Young and Carlos Gomez are all having strong seasons in centre as well. RF - Ichiro Suzuki, N.Y. Yankees Runners-Up: Josh Reddick, Oakland; Ben Revere, Minnesota Ichiro remains a premier fielder, but there is a crop of young challengers, including Reddick, Revere, Jason Heyward and Giancarlo Stanton. (I realize there are Gold Gloves awarded in both leagues.  Im just trying to recognize the best fielders at each position.) ALL-SURPRISE TEAM C - Carlos Ruiz, Philadelphia (14 HR, 58 RBI, .335 AVG, .959 OPS) 1B - Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona (18 HR, 65 RBI, .295 AVG, .886 OPS) 2B - Aaron Hill, Arizona (17 HR, 55 RBI, .300 AVG, .857 OPS) SS - Alcides Escobar, Kansas City (4 HR, 40 RBI, 24 SB, .303 AVG, .746 OPS) 3B - Kyle Seager, Seattle (13 HR, 68 RBI, .247 AVG, .706 OPS) LF - Josh Willingham, Minnesota (31 HR, 91 RBI, .263 AVG, .916 OPS) CF - Dexter Fowler, Colorado (12 HR, 44 RBI, .306 AVG, .890 OPS) RF - Josh Reddick, Oakland (25 HR, 63 RBI, .249 AVG, .803 OPS) SP - Kyle Lohse, St. Louis (12-2, 2.61 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 101 K, 162 IP) SP - R.A. Dickey, N.Y. Mets (15-4, 2.82, 1.03 WHIP, 181 K, 175 1/3 IP) SP - Chris Capuano, Los Angeles (11-8, 3.18 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 143 K, 157 2/3 IP) SP - Jonathon Niese, N.Y.
