Royals lose 18th straight in another squeaker...
Without MacDougal's ridiculous throwing error in the 8th, the Royals only would have lost by five.
Will the Royals ever win again? We're sure they will, but damn...When will it happen? RC is getting tired of waiting. Today's action featured a poor outing from D.J. Carrasco, who only lasted three innings while surrendering seven runs on eight hits. The bullpen wasn't much better, and the Royals lost 11-5. The only highlight came in the ninth inning, as the Royals loaded the bases on a series of walks (with a Chip Ambres double play mixed in), and backup catcher Paul Phillips slammed his first Major League HR, a four-run dinger to left field. But alas, it was too little too late, as the Mariners had already received their grand slam earlier in the day off the bat of Adrian Beltre.
Will the Royals break the American League record for consecutive losses (21)? We think they just might. After an off-day tomorrow, the Royals head to Oakland, where they'll meet up with one of baseball's hottest teams. Folks, it doesn't good.
"You want me to hit where???"
RC misses George.
