Royals Come from Behind Second Time in Two Nights, Sweep Brew Crew

If ever one needed to ask oneself what speed do, the end of tonight's game proves as well as any that that is in fact what speed do. With two outs, Jarrod Dyson drew a walk off of Milwaukee's extremely likable (and not just because he blew two saves this series) closer John Axford, joining MITCH! on base who struck out and reached on a wild pitch and was advanced to second on a swinging bunt from Mike Moustakas. Pinch-hitter Brayan Pena, in what one fears could be his last game at Kauffman Stadium, came in for Humberto Quintero and roped a liner up the line in left, driving in MITCH! and advancing Dyson to third at which point Pena's wide turn at first drew a throw to second from Edwin Maysonet which Rickie Weeks was unable to corral. Sensing his opportunity, Dyson broke for home, beating the throw from second with ease because--well, you know why.

This came on the heels of an effective outing from Luke Hochevar, who struck out five, walked one, gave up six hits and served up two gopher balls en route to a three earned run, 7.1 inning night after Jose Mijares allowed an inherited base runner to score while inexplicably facing a righty*. Tim Collins, who pitched the top of the ninth trying to limit the Royals deficit to a one run, struck out two, walked one, and got the win.

*The fact that Yost had been tossed makes one wonder if the entire coaching staff may not be aware of the fact that Mijares is pretty terrible against righties with RHBs slashing .053/.074/.102 better than LHBs over the course of Mijares's career.

Of note to all followers, Eric Hosmer hung dong with a runner on in the sixth, marking the eighth time he's hung dong this year. Each time he hangs dong, it excites the masses.
