The Royals finished their seven-game homestand with a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Father’s Day at Kauffman Stadium. The KC Royals went 6-1 during their latest stay in their home digs, including three straight wins to finish off their four-game series against the Tigers.
The Kansas City Royals improved to 38-31 and remain 0.5 games behind the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. The Tigers fell to 34-35, and are now 4.5 games behind Cleveland in 4th place.
The KC Royals provided a happy ending to Father’s Day barbecues across Kansas City by pulling out a 13-inning win over Detroit. After blasting the Tigers with 20 hits and 16 runs, less than 16 hours later, the Royals couldn’t seem to buy a score.
Fortunately, Tigers hitters had a similarly tough time against Kansas City Royals fifth starter Chris Young, which allowed the Royals to eek out a win with two scores. Hey, the one-run nail biter counts as much as yesterdays take down in the standings.
On to my observations about Sunday’s game:
