Kelvin Herrera was a beast for two plus innings in relief of Will Smith. Best pitcher on staff? Maybe.
The Royals fell to the Rangers for the second straight night by two runs. The game featured 17 singles and a double (Elvis Andrus of Texas), three errors (1 by KC), a 6-4-6 and a 3-6-3 double play by the Royals.
FELDMAN! Was too much for Kansas City as he notched his third straight good start for the Rangers by scattering six Royal singles and allowing just two runs. He was far from dominate, however.
After allowing both Royal runs in the fifth on a walk, two singles and two rbi groundouts, Kansas City opened the sixth with back to back singles by Lorenzo Cain and Billy Butler, but Feldman got a fly ball out of Moustakas and induced a double play groundball from Salvador Perez to get out of the inning.
Kansas City would get two singles in the ninth out of Moustakas and Eric Hosmer, but they were unfortuneately sandwiched around another Salvador Perez double play ball and that was that. Just another loss to add to the jumble of post All-Star Break games that seldom seem to matter in this franchise's history.
Jeremy Jeffress pitched for the second straight game as the Royals continue to 'win' the Greinke trade, sort of, not really.
