Mike Moustakas Hits First Career Major League Home Run, Yet Royals Fall to Angels

It doesn't matter if the Royals win or lose, but how Mike Moustakas plays the game. Tonight, Moose blasted his first career big league homer and drew another walk. After consecutive 1-3s, Moose is... you guessed it, a lifetime .333 hitter.

Meanwhile, fellow phenom Eric Hosmer struggled, going 0-5. Hosmer's Ofer in the middle of an otherwise active and productive lineup spelled doom for the Royals. Sadly, a rare productive night for Alcides Escobar aplate was wasted as the Angels Angeled their way to seven runs.

Man, a lineup with Butler, Hosmer & Moose... it almost looks... dangerous.

The bubble of Felipe Paulino burst a little bit tonight, but I don't think any of us cared anyway.
