Well it was an exciting game for 1 inning. One pitcher replaced. 2 errors. Half the runs in the game scored.
It was a snooze fest from then on. The Royals managed just 6 singles and runs.
There are 13 more games between these two juggernauts this season. I just can't wait for the 29th when KC starts a 4 game series in Minnesota. The excitement just oozes out when these two teams meet.
- Paulino has a pulled left groin. I am always befuddled on why there is a "side" associated with groin injury.
- Hosmer and Gordon were the only Royals to reach base twice with a walk and single each.
- Yuni with a bomb in the 1st inning.
- Blackburn lowered his ERA 0.6 points (8.37 to 7.75) with his 2 run, 5 inning effort.
