Cowtown Rundown: Kansas City Sports News 7/30

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

Royals lose in 11 innings

The Royals lost in 11 innings on Thursday 6-5 to the Orioles.

Hey, at least they didn't continue on with that ridiculous 14 run-per-game average they were on there for a while.

Blake Wood gets the loss and the Royals continue their series against the Orioles tonight.

Chiefs gearing up for training camp in St. Joe

The Chiefs arrived in St. Joe on Thursday for the start of training camp.

The first practice is at 1:50 p.m. this afternoon and all but two players are expected to be there -- Jarrad Page and Eric Berry. Page hasn't signed his restricted free agent tender and the Chiefs are working hard with Berry's reps to get a deal done so he can be in camp.

The Chiefs will alternate two-a-days and single practice days so there will be three practices every three days.

Several players expressed concern over the heat which will be a little more intense than River Falls, WI.

There's a video of Brain Waters arriving at the facility here and Matt Cassel here.

Big 12 Media Days bring conference expansion talk back up

I don't know about you all, but I am so sick of talking about the Big 12 and the new Big 12 and the Pac-16...whatever it all is. We covered it so in-depth for so long that I'm just not that interested in talking about it anymore.

Of course down at Big 12 media days that's all anyone wanted to talk about because, for the most part, the coaches hadn't weighed in.

Then at one point one of the Big 12 coaches said they were told not to talk much about it. What you likely saw was an email of some sort from Dan Beebe to the rest of the Big 12 coaches and other high level administrators that they're not to talk about certain issues with the Big 12.

Like how it sucks.
