Will Smith pitched great and was helped out by 2 caught stealings and 2 double plays. The offense rolled by hitting 0.390 in memory of George Brett's 1980 season. Nice beat down.

Highlights

  • Perez's hitting streak at 15 games. He had 2 CS in the game.
  • Every Royal got on base at least once. Gordon and Moose were the only hitters to get on base only once.
  • Smith allowed no runs over 7 innings with 7 Ks and 2 BBs.
  • Cain was a HR shy of the cycle. He got hit in the head in his 4th PA.
  • Hosmer with a opposite field HR.
  • A sacrifice bunt attempt failed in the Royals 2nd PA of the game. Surprise, surprise.
  • Hacker of the game: Gordon, 11 pitches in 5 PA
