Royals Wallop Jays, Canadians Weep Into Their Tuxedo Sleeves

As if they knew that we all needed a palate cleanser after a dreadful series in Minnesota, the Royals scored early and often en route to an 11 - 3 drubbing of the Toronto nine. After falling behind in the bottom of the first when Yunel Escobar drove in Brett Lawrie on a one-out, bases-loaded groundout, Salvador Perez quickly answered with a booming home run to left field.

From that point on, the Royals led. Joining Perez in Royal dong hanging, Mike Moustakas hit a mammoth shot to center field. Led largely by the young dong-hangers Moustakas and Perez, who drove in a combined seven runs, the Royals were in control for virtually the entire evening.

Despite the two dingers he allowed, Everett Teaford was somewhat effective. He went seven innings, striking out just two while allowing two walks and five hits. While it wasn't a recipe for long-term success, it was certainly better than some of the other Royals starters have done of late. It's certainly hard to complain about a game in which the Royals whooped up on the Jays.
