The Royals couldn’t salvage the finale of their three-game set against the Blue Jays, losing 4-2 after seeing Toronto rally for two runs against set-up man Kelvin Herrera in the bottom of the eighth inning.
The Kansas City Royals fall to 43-41, eight games behind AL Central leader Cleveland in fourth place. The Blue Jays improved to 48-39 and 2.5 games behind the Orioles in the AL East.
The KC Royals continue their complete failure to compete on the road. Away from Kauffman Stadium the team in now an awful 16-30. The Kansas City Royals have to figure out a way to stop wetting the bed when they leave their home park. Their 2016 season pretty much depends on their ability to find a way to win a reasonable amount of away games.
On Wednesday, it wasn’t the starting pitching that failed. In fact, Ian Kennedy was rather impressive for once away from Kauffman Stadium. Instead, it was the bullpen that failed after the Royals tied the game at 2-2 in the seventh inning.
Right now, the Kansas City Royals resemble an old rowboat that keeps springs more leaks every time you plug one.
On to my observations about Wednesday’s game:
