Royals Drop Three of Four In Cleveland, Last Place Finish Now Likely

The Royals took game one of this series, then dropped the next three games. Well then.

Can this season just end?

I want to point out that Billy Butler was on-base five times today (three hits, two walks) and that, as I love, he was lifted for a PR in the 9th inning. Yost has to do this at least twice a week or he gets fined. And then Kila GIDPed to end the game. Tribe Pride again in Cleveland.

Mike Aviles homered, singled, and stole a base. He's probably saved his career, to an extent, with this September.

Josh Fields played in his ninth game of the season. I think that Teahen/Getz/Fields trade just worked out well for everybody. Just two good GMs putting their heads together and finding a deal that helps both sides.
