John Danks loves it in Kansas City. The Royals might prefer the city barred the White Sox left-hander from future visits. Danks continued his mastery over the Royals with a complete game and Adam Eaton matched his career high with four hits, including a three-run homer, as the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 12-1 Friday night.

Los Angeles Angels second baseman Johnny Giavotella has been diagnosed with fourth cranial nerve palsy, a condition that is expected to keep him sidelined indefinitely. Giavotella explained his situation to reporters in the clubhouse before batting practice as the Angels prepared to begin a three-game series against the Texas Rangers on Friday night. The five-year veteran, who turned 28 in July, said one of the symptoms was double vision whenever he looked to his left.

Take a look around the league with Big League Stew’s daily wrap up. We’ll hit on all of the biggest moments from the day that you may have missed, while providing highlights, photos and interesting stats. Nobody’s going to criticize the way Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams used his bullpen Thursday night. That’s one of the good things about winning 15-1 . The other is, well, winning 15-1.  That’s just what the Nats did, thumping the rival Atlanta Braves. This one was out of control early and stayed that way until the final out. The Nats were up 7-1 after the second inning, 10-1 after the third and 14-1 in the sixth. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] We’ve covered Bryce Harper’s odd night already . He scored four runs after taking four walks, a wonderful 0-for-0 night in which he also notched an RBI on a bases-loaded walk. The traditional offensive star was Ryan Zimmerman, who has been red-hot lately. He drove in four runs on three hits and scored two of his own. This is how hot he’s been: Ryan Zimmerman: 22 RBI in last 10 games, most in a 10-game span of a single season in Nationals/Expos history @EliasSports — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) September 4, 2015 The Nats had a rough start to the week, losing two games to the St. Louis Cardinals in which they blew late leads. Williams’ bullpen management came under fire  and his job security was questioned. Meanwhile, it started to look less and less likely that the once-World Series favorite Nats would even make the playoffs. That still could be very true, but handing out a 15-1 drubbing numbs the pain for a night. ROCKIES, CARGO BRUISE THE GIANTS Elsewhere in the world of routs, the Colorado Rockies did some damage to the San Francisco Giants. The Rockies launched three homers, including two from NL home-run leader Carlos Gonzalez, and beat the Giants 11-3 . Ouch. Double ouch, because it’s the sixth straight loss for the Giants, who are coming off a sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers. S.F. is seven games back in the NL West, though it could have been worse because the Dodgers lost too. Speaking of which … PADRES EDGE DODGERS IN COREY SEAGER’S DEBUT The Dodgers finally called up top prospect Corey Seager on Thursday, giving him the start at shortstop against the San Diego Padres. Things went well for Seager, but not for the Dodgers as a whole. [ Elsewhere: 10 important MLB storylines for September. ] Seager was 2-for-4 with two RBIs — both of them coming on a sixth-inning single that gave the Dodgers a 5-4 lead. The Dodgers would open up a 7-4 lead in the inning, but the Padres charged back and won the game 10-7 . Jedd Gyorko hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning and Yangervis Solarte was 4-for-5 with two RBIs, including a homer in the seventh and RBI double in the eighth. ROYALS WIN BIG OVER TIGERS Yet another blowout from Thursday’s small slate of games: The Kansas City Royals hung  a 15-7 loss  on the Detroit Tigers. This one started like a slugfest, with the Royals leading 6-3 after the second inning and the Tigers scoring three more in the third to tie it.  [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today! ] But the Royals scored two in the fourth and another six in the seventh inning. That was that. It ended as a proper sequel to Wednesday’s 12-1 K.C. win over Detroit. Leading the way for the Royals on Thursday was Kendrys Morales, who was 4-for-5 with four RBIs. Lorenzo Cain also had three RBIs and scored three times while the Ben Zobrist had four hits and three runs. Want to see more from Wednesday’s slate of games? Check out our  scoreboard .

The Baltimore Orioles were right in the middle of the AL playoff race until plummeting into an inexplicable nosedive that negated everything they accomplished over the first 4 1/2 months of the season. Baltimore was 62-57 and a trailed Los Angeles by a half-game for the second wild-card spot on Aug. 19. The last time the Orioles played this poorly was in 2011, when they were closing out a run of 14 straight losing seasons.

Justin Verlander may not be pitching like he did in 2011, when he won the AL Cy Young and MVP awards. Verlander threw his fifth consecutive quality start, and Ian Kinsler homered and drove in three runs as the Detroit Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals 6-5 Tuesday night. The Tigers, who had lost nine of 10 to drop into last place in the AL Central, snapped a four-game losing streak.

The only things that slowed down Yordano Ventura on Wednesday night were the long periods that Kansas City’s 24-year-old flamethrower spent on the bench between innings. While the Royals were pounding four homers and nine extra-base hits off Detroit pitching, Ventura had to sit idly in the dugout. ”Definitely good to have,” Ventura said of the run support, ”but when things take that long, it can be challenging.

The Kansas City Royals are cruising to the American League Central title, and even though the clubhouse is currently guarding against a chickenpox outbreak, their confidence is still sky-high. That confidence certainly extends to the group of people cheering them on. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football: Sign up and join a league today! ] Cameras spotted a young Royals fan at Tuesday night’s game at Kauffman Stadium against Detroit enjoying an ice cream cone. And when we say enjoying it, we mean really enjoying it. Three words for you: Treat. Yo. Self. http://t.co/jfPl29dP9z pic.twitter.com/jXgBN96WKJ — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) September 2, 2015 The kid attacked his ice cream like the back-end of the Royals’ lights-out bullpen attacks opposing hitters with their fastballs: fearlessly. It mustn’t have taken long for his face to be covered in glorious mint chocolate chip, and he could not have been more delighted. It didn’t matter at all that Kansas City was trailing the Tigers and would lose the game 6-5. There was some ice cream to be eaten, and our young hero wasn’t going to let anything get in his way. [ Play a Daily Fantasy contest for cash today! ] Life’s good when you’re on top. Life’s even better when you’re on top and savoring a delicious ice cream cone.
