KC Headlines: Royals Suffer Brutal Loss, Derrick Thomas “A Football Life,” Joe Maddon Buys Beers


ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Mariners 6, Royals 4

Damn you, Aaron Crow. In the top of the ninth, Crow had two outs and a 1-2 count on Kendrys Morales until he grooved a pitch down the middle that Morales hit approximately 781 feet. This was not pleasing on several levels, especially since the Royals came back from a 4-0 deficit to tie the game.

Kansas City will try to get one back this afternoon against Joe Saunders. Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Royals.
