The Royals bounced back from Tuesday’s loss by outlasting the St. Louis Cardinals over twelve innings for a 3-2 win Wednesday night at Busch Stadium.
The Kansas City Royals improved to 31-26, and remain 6.0 games behind Cleveland in the AL Central. The Cardinals fell to 30-27, and 11 games behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. The cross-state rivals will finish their season series on Thursday, with the KC Royals having the chance to take a 3-1 season series win with a victory.
The Kansas City Royals then blew two chances to close out a win with a scoreless half inning in the 9th and 10th, before finally finishing off the Cardinals in the 12th. It wasn’t exactly pretty, but at least the KC Royals got the win.
On to my observations about Wednesday’s game:
