ABOUT LAST NIGHT…
Chris Getz goes six-for-six and Kansas City scored nine runs on 19 hits. But.. Luke Hochevar gave up five runs in less than an inning, leading to a 9-9 tie. A split squad version of the Royals lost earlier in the day to the Brewers, 9-1.
Kansas arrives in “North Texas.” Why not Dallas or Arlington? I don’t know. Texas is weird.
Not Kansas City related, but in case you’re one of nine people who do not watch ESPN the Miami Heat’s winning streak was snapped at 27 last night by the Chicago Bulls.
