Jamie Redknapp described Manchester Citys failure to register a shot on target in the second half against Norwich as diabolical. Manuel Pellegrinis side lost further ground in the title race with a 0-0 draw at struggling Norwich, who have not won in 10 Premier League games.Neither side hit the target in the second period, and Redknapp insists that with the quality of players Man City have at their disposal, they should be performing better. Norwich prevented Man City from having a shot on target in the second half He said on Ford Football Special: Ive got to be honest, what must Manchester City fans think when they see their side perform like that. No shots on target in the second half, thats diabolical.Theyve scored 13 away goals this year and havent won back-to-back games since October. Look at the quality hes got at his disposal. Norwich 0-0 Man City Manchester Citys Premier League title bid continued to stutter I looked at Norwich, and they did really well in the end, I dont want to take anything away from them, but they were there for the taking at the start today.For Man City to be in this predicament, so far behind Leicester. Everyone has given it to Leicester, its amazing. Aguero came close twice in the first half for the visitors Pellegrini started striker Wilfried Bony up front at Carrow Road alongside Sergio Aguero, but the Ivory Coast striker did not touch the ball inside the area for the entirety of his stint before being replaced by Raheem Sterling on 58 minutes.Bony has scored four goals in 19 Premier League appearances this season, and Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry was left baffled by the 27-year-olds lack of presence in the area on Saturday.Henry said: I couldnt understand it. Theyre trying to get back in the title race and need goals for that. Pellegrini went with two strikers. Manuel Pellegrini blamed Man Citys inability to create space for the draw You should be running, breaking your neck to get into the box. Thats not good enough. Who is there to make sure that you can upset the Norwich defence?They started with two strikers for a reason. They touched the ball in the area four times, and it was all Aguero.I think its Leicesters to lose. We were saying before the game: Can Manchester City win the title? I think the question now is: Can they stay in the top four?

ARLINGTON, Texas -- David Lough was willing to endure a little pain to help the Kansas City Royals win. Robbie Ross hit Lough with a pitch with the bases loaded to force in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning, and the Royals beat the Texas Rangers 4-1 Saturday. Lough thought he had a broken right wrist when he left the game after getting plunked. His fears worsened when he couldnt move his fingers for about 20 minutes. Lough was finally able to enjoy the three-run 10th inning that lifted the Royals to only their second win in 11 games. "I had the X-rays and a lot of strength came back in my arm after that," Lough said. "Im glad we got the win more than anything." Ross (2-1) had only allowed one run in 24-1-3 innings this season before Saturday. The left-hander gave up a leadoff single to Alcides Escobar in the 10th. Eric Hosmer followed with a single and Billy Butler was intentionally walked to load the bases. Ross struck out Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain before Lough came up. Lough was hit on a 2-1 pitch to force in the go-ahead run. That snapped Ross scoring streak at 20 1-3 innings. "Stuff is going to happen no matter what," Ross said. "I have to bounce back and get back to helping the team win." Lough left the game after getting plunked with a fastball in the right arm. The rookie outfielder tried to stay in the game but slowly walked off the field in obvious pain as he was replaced by pinch-runner Jeff Francoeur. George Kottaras, who entered the game in the ninth inning, lined a two-run double over the head of Nelson Cruz in right. The Royals had only scored 22 runs in their past 10 games and were 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position before Kottaras broke the game open. "It was a big win," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. "(Ross) is one of their guys who has been throwing good." Aaron Crow (1-1) pitched 1 1-3 innings of scoreless relief and Greg Holland worked a perfect 10th for his ninth save in 11 chances. The Rangers had runners on second and third with two outs in the ninth but Crow retired Jurickson Profar on a foul pop to end the threat. James Shields, who had lost his last four starts, allowed one run in seven innings as he looked to win for the first time since Aprril 30.dddddddddddd He gave up five hits, struck out five and walked one. In Shields previous four starts, the Royals had only scored seven runs behind him. "I dont care about run support as much as winning the game," Shields said. "Ive got to do a better job pitching." Nick Tepesch made his first career start against his hometown team and allowed an unearned run in 6 1-3 innings. The rookie gave up seven hits and struck out two. Texas third baseman Adrian Beltre left the game after the ninth inning with tightness in his left hamstring. Beltre was injured running the bases in the fourth. Rangers manager Ron Washington said Beltre is day to day. Texas designated hitter Lance Berkman was ejected for arguing a called third strike in the first inning. Berkman took a 2-2 pitch from Shields that home plate umpire Todd Tichenor ruled was a third strike. The Rangers first-year designated hitter was tossed from the game after a brief argument with Tichenor. "I didnt think I said or did anything that would warrant the ejection," Berkman said "But he obviously felt different." Shields retired 10 in a row before the Rangers scored in the fourth. Beltre and Cruz singled with two outs. Mitch Moreland then lofted a soft single to centre that scored Beltre and put the Rangers ahead 1-0. Tepesch grew up in Blue Springs, Mo., about 15 minutes from Kansas Citys Kauffman Stadium. The right-hander needed only eight pitches to retire the side in the first and recorded nine groundball outs through four innings. Kansas City tied the game in the fifth when Lough singled with one out and scored on A.J. Pierzynskis passed ball. NOTES: Washington said Alexi Ogando (right biceps tendinitis) will throw a bullpen session Sunday. The right-hander allowed two unearned runs in a rehab start for Double-A Frisco on Friday night. Washington said the team will make the decision whether to activate Ogando after the bullpen session. .
