Royals Lose 8-5, Hosmer Can't Overcome Mazzaro's Horrible Start

New, comments

Quicks hits.

  1. Mazzaro allowed 6 runs in 5 innings and lowered his ERA over 5 points (22.74 to 17.47).
  2. Kyle Drabek, Toronto's starter, actually tried to match Mazzaro's ineptitude with 5.1 IP, 9H, 3 BB, 0 K. Mazzaro's Game Score (29) was actually higher than Drabek's Game Score (27).
  3. Gotta love this play: Y Escobar stole second, Y Escobar safe at third on throwing error by catcher M Trainor, Y Escobar scored on throwing error by center fielder M Cabrera.
  4. It seemed like neither team really wanted to win the game. Just horrible
  5. 3 for 12 with RISP. 0.250. Seemed better than normal. Heck, 0.250 is a higher AVG than 4 of tonights starters.
  6. Hosmer went 2 for 4 with a walk.
