If you’re one of those people who INSIST on always looking on the bright side, I can suppose you can take some solace from two-hit games from both Kendrys Morales and Salvador Perez.
Both badly need to get going for the KC Royals offense to pull out if its funk, and Morales has hits in two games in a row. HEY, it’s a HITTING STREAK.

Maybe you can say that Dillon Gee really was good except that Ned Yost failed to recognize the three-times through the order penalty. If Yost had managed him properly, maybe the Kansas City Royals would have still been in the game in the late innings.
But, then you’d still have the little problem of getting shut out.
Not a whole lot of ways of spinning a shutout to a pitcher that came in with a 5.06 ERA before the game started. Yeah, I know. The other guys get paid, too. And anyone can beat anyone else on a given day. And maybe the sun will come up tomorrow…
Why am I getting inordinate pleasure in imaging someone braining Little Orphan Annie over the head with a crowbar while singing that stupid song? Oh yeah. It’s because I’m an unhappy baseball fan.
Oh and let’s see, Luke Hochevar didn’t give up a run, I don’t have to vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton for another six whole months, and a meteor is unlikely to hit my house any time soon.
Oh forget it.
THE SKY IS FALLING!!! THE SEASON’S OVER!!! THE ROYALS SUCK!!!

Ok, now I feel better.
