Cowtown Rundown: Kansas City Sports News 7/5

Here's your daily rundown of Kansas City sports news...

Royals get smoked in return to ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball

Ah, this is frustrating. The Royals are actually playing well, the rest of the world probably doesn't realize that and so when they have a chance to showcase themselves, what do they do?

Get blown out  11-0.

Sigh.

Soria will rep the Royals at the All-Star Game

Joakim Soria got the nod for the Royals in the All-Star Game. He's the co-leader in the A.L. with 22 saves. The Royals have 36 wins.

Soria beat out guys like David DeJesus, Billy Butler and Jose Guillen. All three would have been worthy candidates. The problem, I think, is that they're all very good at a lot of things and not dominant at one.

More Royals news from Royals Review: Joakim Soria named to the All-Star team, Royals destroyed by Angels in finale.

Mizzou safety suspended for shoplifting

Jarrell Harrison has been suspended indefinitely, according to MU, after being arrested on Friday for suspicion of misdemeanor shoplifting at Spencer's, a novelty store in the Columbia Maul.

Chiefs starting to work on Berry, other draft picks

Historically, NFL front offices get back to work after the 4th of July holiday. Their main focus is locking down contract for their club's draft picks.

For the Chiefs that means the six remaining: Eric Berry (1), Dexter McCluster (2), Javier Arenas (2), Tony Moeaki (3), Jon Asamoah (3) and Cameron Sheffield (5).

Expect to hear some news in the next week on at least one of those picks.
