KC Headlines: Saucy Royals Win, SKC Upset, Boo Cano

ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Royals 3, Tigers 2 (10 innings)

Yay winning!

Look, the Royals are flawed but winning rules. So I’ll do my best to put a moratorium about how bad the Royals offense and focus on the fact positives so long as the team maintains this run of success. Lorenzo Cain and Eric Hosmer nullified a tremendous start from Justin Verlander to push the Royals to the extra-innings win. Cain hit a two-run homer in the ninth and Hosmer singled in Tejada to win it. James Shields was excellent once again but did not factor in the decision.

KC starts a four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays tonight in Tampa.

Royals Nugget: KC is 8-3 in June and 5-1 in extra-inning games this season. If we could ignore the existence of the month of May, KC is 22-13.

Sporting KC lost to their minor league affiliate 1-0 on Wednesday night, which eliminates them from the U.S. Open Cup. There are not a lot of good things to say about the equivalent of Omaha Storm Chasers beating the Royals as one would imagine. A piece of good news is Teal Bunbury was solid in his return from an ACL injury. Aside from that though… not good.
