KANSAS CITY http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-a.-j.-pollock-jersey , Mo. (AP) — Ned Yost will return as the Royals‘ manager next year following Kansas City’s poorest season since 2005.Kansas City announced a one-year extension Sunday before the season finale against Cleveland.“The harmony in the organization is really important,” general manager Dayton Moore said. “We’re at a point in time right now where we think continuity is even more crucial than it has been in the past. We’ve seen the improvement of a lot of the players that are on the field right now. We’re really pleased with the coaching staff.”Yost became Royals manager on May 13, 2010, and led the team to the 2015 World Series title, the team’s first since 1985 and second ever.“Ned’s been a huge part of the success of this organization and we feel it’s important to keep that together,” Moore said. “I enjoy working with him, personally and professionally, and I’m excited about next year.”Yost has confidence going into next season while recognizing some big challenges.“I think we’re making progress,” he said. “I like the fact that the kids made the big jump like they did. Still Yasmany Tomas Jersey , I don’t think we’re there yet. I said all along, I want to get us in a position where we can compete. We’re getting closer. I think everybody’s excited about where we’re headed and the way we finished. That was good for everybody. We had our first winning month in September.”Yost anticipates building on that success and working with the young Royals.“That’s why I like coming back, because you build from the beginning,” he said. “You have to understand where you’re at and there’s a certain way you got to do it to get it right. It’s easier for me to do it because I’ve been through it. It’s easier for me to get us to that point where we’re right down the road and then let somebody else come in who can really stomp the gas and go from there, like we did in ’13 and ’14.”Moore acknowledged that Yost’s contract status remains year to year.“Ned and I spoke about this in spring training, we spoke about it early on in the season,” Moore said. “He was leaning towards wanting to come back. We would just see how it would develop over the course of the season, and here we are.”Infielder Whit Merrifield is glad to have Yost return for 2019.“We love Ned,” Merrifield said. “It was cool to see him http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-shelby-miller-jersey , just like the rest of us, get re-energized with this group of guys. You could just see him walking around with a little more energy and little more pep in his step. He was positive with us all year.”Merrifield appreciated Yost’s even keel through a season in which the Royals went 58-104, tied for the second-worst record in club history.“Even when we were going bad, he was the guy who was telling us to relax and that this was a tough step and we’ll get through it,” he said. “And we did. We got to where we needed to and that’s going into next year having nice momentum and confidence.”Yost also managed Milwaukee from 2003-08. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Trey Mancini kept the Baltimore Orioles from beating themselves Wednesday night.Mancini hit a go-ahead two-run double in the ninth inning, and the last-place Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 despite committing five errors, their most in a game in more than 19 years.It was the first time the Orioles committed five errors in a victory since June 9, 1983.“I don’t know the last time I’ve been part of a game that we’ve had five errors and won Chris Owings Jersey ,” Mancini said. “But baseball can be a very beautiful thing sometimes where maybe you make some mistakes, but maybe at the end of the day you still do enough to win the game.”Sergio Romo (2-3) allowed consecutive hits to Mark Trumbo, Danny Valencia and Mancini in the ninth, the only three batters he faced. It was Romo’s seventh blown save.“It just kind of happened, maybe location,” Romo said. “I haven’t seen the replay and I don’t think I’m going to. I think I’ll just chalk that one up to the baseball gods.”Tampa Bay has played five straight one-run games and lost four of them.It was only the second time in 73 tries the Orioles won a game when trailing after eight innings.“It’s been a challenge for us,” manager Buck Showalter said. “You just don’t win major league games very often like that.”Mike Wright Jr. (3-0) got two outs in relief, and Mychal Givens pitched the ninth for his third save.Carlos Gomez put Tampa Bay ahead 4-3 in the eighth with an RBI double off Wright. He also scored the tying run in the seventh on a sacrifice fly fielded by the shortstop.Tim Beckham and Adam Jones homered on consecutive pitches in the first inning off opener Ryne Stanek. Trumbo led off the fourth with his 16th homer, extending his hitting streak to 10 games.Baltimore starter Andrew Cashner gave up three runs and four hits in seven innings. Only one of the runs was earned.After giving up three singles and two runs in the first inning Archie Bradley Jersey , Cashner retired 18 of his next 19 before hitting Gomez with a pitch in the seventh. Kevin Kiermaier then bounced into an apparent forceout, but Beckham, playing shortstop, missed the base with his foot.Willy Adames followed with a hit when Beckham lost his footing on a grounder to deep short, loading the bases. And after Beckham caught Michael Perez’s flyball in short left field, Gomez tagged up. Beckham’s throw was way off line, allowing Gomez to score.“Cash was the difference tonight,” Showalter said. “He didn’t give up a hard-hit ball in the first inning and he gave up two runs, but he just kept pitching.”Stanek pitched two innings Curt Schilling Jersey , giving up the homers to Beckham and Jones while striking out four. It was Beckham’s sixth home run and Jones’ 12th.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: Switch-hitting INF Steve Wilkerson (left oblique strain) still has some discomfort swinging from the left side and is not ready for a rehab assignment.Rays: OF Tommy Pham (hairline right foot fracture) played catch and hit off a tee, and could return later this month. … Reliever Chaz Roe (left knee) will start a rehab assignment Thursday night was Class A Charlotte.UP NEXTRHP David Hess, who pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings against the Rays in his last victory on May 25, will pitch Thursday night’s series finale for the Orioles against Rays opener Hunter Wood, probably followed by Yonny Chirinos.
