It was an ugly win. It was nice to see Verlander get shelled. We probably won't score another run against him all year.

Highlights of the game

  • The Royals got to Verlander early for 7 runs in the first 2 innings.
  • Mendoza wasn't much better with 6 ER from 7 Hits, 1 BB and a HR.
  • Francouer was intentionally walked again. His 5th this month.
  • All the batters got a hit except Frenchy and Hosmer who both walk once.
  • Perez seemed to be struggling to get in front of some pitches. The official line shows only 2 WP, but it seemed worse.
  • Hacker of the game: Perez saw 14 pitches in 5 PAs.
