The run support in Kansas City goes to Luke Hochevar , who is 5-2 with a 4.95 ERA. The Royals have scored more than four runs in six of Hochevar's starts and two of Greinke's.

Staked to a big, early lead, Jered Weaver won his American League-leading 13th game Wednesday as the Angels defeated the Kansas City Royals, 11-6, at Angel Stadium. Weaver struck out eight in five innings to tie Tampa Bay's David Price for the AL lead in wins. Price pitches Wednesday night at the Baltimore Orioles. The Angels (54-45) jumped on Royals starting pitcher Luke Hochevar and his mistake-prone teammates for a 6-0 lead after two innings. Victory was punctuated in the eighth when Mike Trout and Torii Hunter struck back-to-back home runs off Royals reliever Luis Coleman.

Paul DePodesta and agent Scott Boras sat behind home plate at Angel Stadium on Thursday night discussing whether top draft pick Luke Hochevar would sign with the Dodgers. Hochevar's latest demand is between $3.5 million and $4 million; the Dodgers have increased their offer to nearly $3 million. "We'll see what tomorrow brings," DePodesta said. Hochevar could attend classes at Tennessee today and the Dodgers would lose their rights to him.

No offensive outburst yet in Anaheim. Through four and a half innings, Kansas City Royals pitcher Bruce Chen is matching Angels ace Jered Weaver in a scoreless tie. Chen has retired Angels' free-agent slugger Albert Pujols twice: a double-play line drive to shortstop and foul pop fly to third base. After Pujols' anticipated first at-bat closed with a line drive that Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar gloved and turned into a double play, the first at-bat by Kendrys Morales after he fractured his ankle celebrating a game-winning home run in 2010 was also anti-climactic: a double-play grounder to Escobar.

The suspense is over, but negotiations are not. Despite not talking to the Dodgers for several weeks, pitcher Luke Hochevar decided Friday to skip fall classes at Tennessee, giving the two sides several more months to come to terms. Hochevar, the first Dodger pick and 40th overall choice in the June draft, would be eligible to pitch for Tennessee by enrolling for the spring semester, so his decision did not give the Dodgers as much leverage as they expected.

The Dodgers must sign heralded pitcher Luke Hochevar before he begins fall classes at Tennessee on Aug. 24 or lose rights to him. Neither side is particularly optimistic because there is nearly a $2-million difference between what he wants and what the Dodgers are willing to pay. Hochevar, Baseball America's college pitcher of the year, dropped beyond the first round because teams were worried that they could not meet the demands of his agent, Scott Boras.

Luke Hochevar, the Dodgers' first pick in the June draft, and agent Scott Boras apparently now believe the Dodgers are not to blame for the events that led to Hochevar's agreeing to and then reneging on a $2.98-million signing bonus. Boras apparently holds agent Matt Sosnick responsible, and spoke late Thursday night with scouting director Logan White in an attempt to renew negotiations for the University of Tennessee right-hander. Over a seven-hour period on the night of Sept.

Luke Hochevar must begin classes at Tennessee by early next week, giving the Dodgers three or four more days to negotiate with the talented right-handed pitcher before losing his rights. The Dodgers took him with the 40th overall pick in the June free-agent draft although he had let teams know it would take about $4 million to sign him. A pitcher with similar potential, Craig Hansen of St. John's, recently signed for $4 million after being taken by Boston with the 26th pick.

This was the easy part. The Kansas City Royals selected Luke Hochevar with the first pick in Tuesday's amateur baseball draft, 39 spots above where the Dodgers had taken the right-hander from the University of Tennessee one year ago. Now the Royals must try to sign Hochevar, a potentially worrisome proposition considering the prospect's holdout history and the fact that agent Scott Boras said he would seek a contract similar to the $5.

The Dodgers hold a document they believed had all but completed their negotiations with Luke Hochevar, their first selection in the June draft, in a $2.98-million proposal that bears Hochevar's signature. It was delivered last Friday night, and promised a conclusion to 2 1/2 months of talks that ran unrestrained from stagnant to chaotic, pitting the Dodgers against agent Scott Boras, dragging along the Tennessee right-hander.
