These pitchers blow: Twins 10, Royals 6


MLB: Kansas City Royals at Minnesota Twins Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals lost to the Twins, 10-6.

They originally led 6-2, but the pitchers picked a bad time to have diarrhea all down their legs.

As a team, the Royals had 17 baserunners and still lost. That does not happen every day.

The entire offense came in a six-run third inning. Alex Gordon ripped a two-run double down the line in right field. Jorge Bonifacio singled him home. And then Salvador Perez, playing for the first time in a week, crushed a three-run bomb for his 24th home run of the season.

At that point, the Royals led 6-2, but it was very shortlived.

Heath Fillmyer immediately gave up four runs to bring the Twins even with the Royals. Glenn Sparkman gave up three runs and Wily Peralta gave up another to bring the Twins to 10.

This is a very short recap because I’m in a bit of a crunch. Sunday will be a better effort.

The Royals play game two of the series tomorrow. It is at 6:10 pm.
