KANSAS CITY , Mo. (AP) — Heath Fillmyer used a hockey mentality to get a baseball milestone Wednesday night.Fillmyer allowed three singles over seven innings for his first major league win, Adalberto Mondesi and Drew Butera each drove in three, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago Cubs 9-0.Anthony Rizzo drilled Fillmyer (1-1) with a line drive on the left heel on his third pitch, but Fillmyer stuck around and didn’t allow another hit until David Bote and Tommy La Stella singled with one out in the seventh inning.“Did I see it?” Fillmyer said. “I felt it. It felt like a hockey puck off the boot. Coming up, I played a lot of hockey. I knew I had to walk it off a little bit. It shook right off and felt pretty good after that. I didn’t try to think about it to let it bother me.”Royals manager Ned Yost let the right-hander stay in to face left-handed Kyle Schwarber with two out and two on in the seventh, even though lefty Tim Hill was warming in the bullpen. Fillmyer got Schwarber to pop up.“Normally a young pitcher in the seventh inning, you don’t want to put them in a position to lose the game,” Yost said. “I made my mind up he was going to pitch through it. This is his first big league win if he’s going to get in trouble, he’s either going to win it or lose it himself in the seventh inning.”Mondesi belted a 2-0 pitch from Jose Quintana for a three-run homer in the seventh. It was Mondesi’s fourth home run and his first since July 15, a span of 42 at-bats.Butera hit a two-run, two-out double with the bases loaded in the second inning and added a sacrifice fly during a four-run eighth.Jorge Bonifacio, who entered hitting .103 in his past 16 games, Brett Phillips and Hunter Dozier each had two hits and a walk and combined to score seven runs. Bonifacio had an RBI double in the eighth, while Phillips contributed an RBI triple.Quintana (10-8) dropped to 3-10 in 25 starts against the Royals. He was removed after Mondesi’s homer, giving up five runs on six hits and two walks.“Quintana pitched well up until the seventh there when he gave up those runs,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “Two walks got him in trouble. Butera gets it down the line. Other than that, you like to believe you’re going to score more than zero runs and we didn’t.”The Royals snapped a six-game losing streak.DARVISH UPDATECubs RHP Yu Darvish threw a 33-pitch bullpen with his velocity reaching 93 mph.“He looked loose and free to me ,” Maddon said. “I thought it was a really good day, no negatives.”Darvish, who the Cubs signed to a six-year $126 million contract in February, has missed 69 games. He last pitched on May 20. Maddon said he anticipates Darvish will throw one more bullpen, and if he has no setback, would go on a minor league rehab assignment.TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: IF-OF Ben Zobrist (sore hip) was out of the lineup after leaving Tuesday’s game in fifth inning. “Just a little bit sore, just precautionary,” Zobrist. “Let’s rest it and get back to it. It should be no problem at all Friday.”Royals: RHP Ian Kennedy (left oblique strain) said he felt no discomfort the day after throwing a 25-pitch bullpen. He is scheduled to throw a 30-35 pitch bullpen Friday while mixing in more offspeed pitches.UP NEXTCubs: After a day off, RHP Kyle Hendricks will start Friday against the Nationals at Wrigley Field.Royals: Continue interleague play with a series beginning Friday against St. Louis. RHP Burch Smith will start the opener. He was outstanding in that role down the stretch."A forearm injury in July derailed Junior Guerra’s excellent start to the 2018 season, diminishing the effectiveness of his signature split-finger and eventually leading to his removal from the starting rotation in September. Our hero was able to reinvent himself as a multi-inning reliever down the stretch, however, adding a devastating curveball to his arsenal while allowing only five hits, zero walks, and one run in seven appearances and 10.2 innings out of the bullpen during the final month of the season and into the playoffs. Guerra looked dominant at times while punching out 13 of the 35 batters he faced (37.1%).And now according to Guerra himself, it sounds like the Milwaukee Brewers are planning on having him continue to fill the role that he shined so brightly in down the stretch.Junior recently reported to his Venezuelan Winter League club, Tiburones de La Guiara, and pitched a scoreless one-inning debut against Caracas. Reports began to emerge regarding the restrictions placed on his workload by the Brewers Sandy Koufax Jersey , including pitching only as a reliever, never working on back-to-back days or for more than one inning, and only starting clean innings, not coming in during a high-stress situation caused by a different pitcher. Some of these restrictions are surely due to Milwaukee’s desire to protect Guerra’s arm after he pitched more than 180 innings between Spring Training, AAA, the big league regular and postseason, and Japan All-Star series in 2018 (plus 77.0 innings during the 2017-18 LVBP winter season), but Junior also provided some clarity about his role going forward during a recent interview with the Venezuelan media (translated from has predominantly worked from the rotation during his three seasons in Milwaukee, but the veteran professional is no stranger to pitching out the of bullpen. He was a true swingman while pitching in the minors for the White Sox in 2015, starting 11 games and finishing 15 others (while recording 7 saves) during his 31 appearances between AA and AAA and then making three more outings as a reliever for Chicago at the Major League level. In fact, he has been called upon out of the bullpen in some 150+ games across the various levels and leagues that he’s pitched in professionally.After watching Guerra’s performance to conclude the 2018 season, it’s easy to dream on him becoming something of a right-handed compliment to Josh Hader as a middle-innings fireman in Milwaukee’s bullpen. GM David Stearns and manager Craig Counsell have been pretty open about their desire to continue to “blur the lines” between starter and reliever, which means that even if he’s not toeing the rubber to start games in 2019, Guerra could be in line for a rather significant multi-inning role. Should Counsell and Stearns indeed double down on the 27-outs philosophy that they deployed to perfection during September and October, that would mean plenty of shorter starts and a boatload of innings that need to be eaten up as a bridge to the guys like Corey Knebel and Jeremy Jeffress in the back end of the bullpen.Guerra’s new assignment may mean that the bullpen is pretty well filled out for the upcoming season after the additions of Alex Claudio and Deolis Guerra. It also provides a little more clarity to the starting rotation picture, though there will still be plenty to sort out there once the team arrives in Spring Training. Jhoulys Chacin figures to once again sit atop the rotation, and Corbin Burnes appears primed for a run as a starter after an astounding debut season out of the bullpen in 2018. After that , one would expect there to be competition between Chase Anderson (if he’s not traded first), Zach Davies, Brandon Woodruff, and Freddy Peralta. Jimmy Nelson is a total wild card coming off shoulder surgery that kept him out all of 2018, but could factor into that mix if he’s healthy. The team is believed to be on the lookout for more outside help in the starting pitching department, as well, having been linked to still available pitchers Dallas Keuchel, Corey Kluber, Trevor Bauer, Mike Minor, Wade Miley, Yusei Kikuchi, Sonny Gray, Noah Syndergaard, and Madison Bumgarner at various points this offseason. Even if it isn’t one of these more notable names, it seems quite likely that Slingin’ Stearns and company will augment their starting pitching depth in some major or minor capacity before the caravan heads to Maryvale Baseball Park in February.Statistics courtesy of Baseball-Reference
