ABOUT LAST NIGHT…
Royals 7, Mariners 6
After Greg Holland was mortal for one pitch, Mike Moustakas bailed out the Royals in the bottom of the 13th with a walk-off home run. The homer was his 11th of the season and helped pull the Royals to within 4.5 games of the wild card.
Wil Myers also has 11 home runs. This means nothing, but it seems we have to always talk about Myers even when it is not related.
KC starts a huge 15-game stretch against Detroit, Cleveland, and Texas, which will either create a playoff opportunity for them or destroy it.
FOOTBALL started last night with the Broncos crushing the Ravens 49-27. Peyton Manning tied a NFL record with seven touchdown passes, the most in a game since 1969. Not too shabby.
KC opens their season on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. I hope Alex Smith throws seven touchdowns.
