Kendrick has home run overturned
Major League Baseball has overturned a scoring decision from last Friday's game between the Angels and Royals, ruling Los Angeles' Howie Kendrick reached on an error instead of an inside-the-park homer.
Kendrick was initially given the homer after Kansas City right fielder Jose Guillen misplayed a ball down the line. The Royals appealed the decision by official scorer Mel Franks, and a five-person appeals board voted unanimously to change the ruling, taking away Kendrick's homer and giving Guillen a four-base error. Franks then approved the change.
The decision took away two earned runs from Royals starter Gil Meche, dropping his ERA to 4.01 entering Thursday night's game against Baltimore.
