4) Royals Really Missed Kendrys Morales vs. Mets
Kendrys Morales has broken out of his two month long slump to hit .317/.388/.483 in June, which pretty much looks like his 2015 performance for the Kansas City Royals. Getting Morales going has been big for the KC Royals offense, which really relies on his switch-hitting power in the middle of their lineup.

Of course, playing two games under National League rules meant that designated hitter Morales got parked on the bench. The “hot” Kansas City Royals offense then proceeded to score four runs in two games while Morales made only one plate appearance. They also lost two, one-run games.
Yeah, the Royals missed him.
Let’s just hope that Kendrys Morales picks up where he left after his four day break (off days before and after the Mets series, plus two games under NL rules). Breaking Kendrys momentum was the last thing the KC Royals needed after he wallowed for two months.
I guess the Mets dished out a measure of their own medicine to the Kansas City Royals. I can’t say I enjoyed it much, and I hope that Kendrys Morales can turn things around during the coming homestand.
