Royals manager watches Rays rout at daughter's wedding

Going to the chapel and we're gonna watch baseball

ST. PETERSBURG — Royals manager Ned Yost could be excused for missing his team's game on the night his daughter got married. But he didn't miss it … totally.

Yost was in Sugar Hill, Ga., on Thursday with one eye on the wedding of his daughter, Jenny, and another on the Royals-Rays game about 500 miles away.

"I had the phone out, sitting on the pew right next to me, during the whole process," Yost said at Tropicana Field a day after the Royals won 10-1 under bench coach Chino Cadahia. "I was looking the whole time until the sixth inning came, and then I saw two runs, and I was relieved. Then I saw four and I saw seven, and eight. I just got a big smile on my face thinking they can handle it from there."

Yost made out the Royals lineup on Wednesday before leaving for one day. "It's my only daughter," he said. "I've got three boys and a girl, so it was very special."
