Royals Lose Heartbreaker to Red Sox

What a day in Royals land. It was all setup for a magic moment in the bottom of the 8th, but our hero struck out versus the absolutely filthy Bard.

  • Yes, he gave up 8 hits and walked two, but I'll take that start from Luke Hochevar anytime against the Red Sox. 48 Polk Points. I really don't know what to think of the "he's fixed, we used video and he's fixed" narrative. Maybe it's true. I'm not begging the question. I really don't know. In any case, a usable start.
  • Alex Gordon is good. On Jeff Francoeur appreciation day, Alex Gordon homered and doubled. His 4.6 WAR is exactly twice what the Sainted One has done this season.
  • Outfield assists!
  • Yost pulled Butler for Getz after Butler's single with one out in the 8th. My gut response was "too early" but then again, maybe not. I'd love to hear what you guys think.
  • Tim Collins walked someone.
  • A three-hit night for Butler. Sometimes I think I take him for granted.
