Royals Win in Extras 6-5, Extend Winning Streak to 4 Games

I can't believe you didn't swing at those pitches.

Nice to see the team come back. Remember that 6 game losing streak?  I don't.

Quick Hits

1.   The bullpen did a great job tonight.  4 1/3 innings, 6 K, 0 BB, 3 hits, 0 Runs.  Nice.

2.  Freedom (Francouer) had a damn good game.  Home run.  Walk off hit.  Threw out Lee at second.  It is like it is 2006 all over again.

3.  Yost is trying to ruin Francis.  110 pitches from someone coming back from shoulder surgery.   At least he is not in the Gil Meche territory of 130+ pitches. Francis also became the first pitcher this season to walk Vlad this season.
