Royals manager pleads for fan support

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Royals manager Ned Yost pleaded with fans on Wednesday to show up for their remaining home games, one night after Kansas City's dramatic win over the Twins was seen by just 13,847 at Kauffman Stadium.

Yost briefly mentioned the attendance in his postgame remarks and expanded on his thoughts when asked a follow-up question about so many empty seats during a pennant race.

"We've been working hard to try to make our fans happy and make our fans proud of us for a lot of years," Yost said, "and we'd like them to enjoy a night like that."

Yost said Wednesday that he wasn't being critical of fans, just asking them to join in the fun.

Also, the Royals demoted RH reliever Aaron Crow to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

AIKEN CASE: Commissioner Bud Selig seemed to acknowledge that the Astros might be permitted to continue negotiations with top overall pick Brady Aiken. The San Diego high school left-hander failed to sign by the July 18 deadline because of a disagreement over the condition of his elbow. Asked if negotiations were allowed to continue, Selig said that baseball was "working on that right now."

REDS: LHP Tony Cingrani, on Triple-A Louisville's disabled list since June 26 with a left shoulder strain, is unlikely to pitch again this season.

RED SOX: DH David Ortiz returned to the starting lineup after missing two games with a sore right foot.

YANKEES: OF Chris Young, released last week by the Mets, agreed to a minor-league contract.
