Five innings of perfect baseball by Luke Hochevar.  15 up.  15 down.  And then it went to straight down hill from there.  6 hits, 1 walk, 2 balks and 4 runs later and the 6th inning was over.  Luke then preceded to walk the next two batters the next innings.  It was for the me the most exciting 5 innings of baseball this season the the worst 4 innings.

I really hope this game isn't a microcosm of the season.  Giving the fans a bunch of false hope and then falling flat on your face.  It probably is.  Remember 2003. 18-11.  This game was definitely a Kansas City Royals baseball moment.
