How about 1-0? Being there, it was fun to see JoFer and a great pitchers' duel. But that offense was just an abortion tonight. With Turner on the mound, it should be easier to get 2 or 3 runs. That's really all that they will need tomorrow with Ervin pitching to a terrible lineup (which, by the way, among the 9 of them, has 28 home runs). The Tigers lost tonight as well and the Royals are still 4 back in the WC race, so no harm done. Take the series tomorrow and look to win a few in Detroit.

That Fernandez is a special pitcher. Can get a bit wild at times but he then shows outstanding command on the next pitch. I think I saw last night he had 40-some pitches over 95. Miami really needs to save that kid's arm because they are going nowhere in the next couple of years. He had a low pitch count last night, but he was pulled after 7 with 94 pitches.
There was only 1 time where KC had a runner in scoring postition. Should be a good lineup today with Lough leading off, then Hosmer, Butler, Gordon, Perez, maybe Moose and then who knows with the last 3 with Escobar, Getz and Dyson.

Little $100 score...not too shabby.

Jumped on the under when it was at +110...had gone all the way to -120 by gametime...which for O/U's is pretty rare to see that kind of jump.

Moustakas in a walking boot today...that doesn't sound good.

Can't afford these injuries when the offense is average to start with.

Not having him or Cain for the Tigers series is not exactly ideal.

Agreed.

I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this upcoming Detroit series.

I'm "hoping" for 2 out of 5.

Realistically, I can see this series getting bad.

Royals just acquired another infielder (likely for cash): Emilio Bonifacio from the Jays (and all of his .218 average). Certainly won't do much for KC, but maybe a better option than Elliot Johnson has been thus far. Or Getz.

I wouldn't worry much about Moose until we actually hear bad news. So far, it has been reported that das boot is just precautionary as a means of relieving pressure on his calf. Speculation seems to be that he will play against Detroit at some point, 100% healthy or not. He's just so much better than Johnson or Carroll right now, it's hard to justify not letting him tough it out.

Interesting pickup.

I think it means either the end for one of Elliot Johnson, Chris Getz, or Jamey Carroll. That or either the injury to Cain or Moose is more serious than we're being led to believe.

I can't stand Getz but I did find it humorous that he had three hits two nights ago. Johnson is like 3 for his last 45 or something like that.

I mean, it has to be Johnson who is gone, right?

They can't simply justify keeping all of these utility infielders.

Yost's lineups have puzzled me. Especially in the top 3 spots.

Miami's pitcher is struggling right now. Evidence? Getz led off the 2nd on 4 straight balls. Wow.

(Of course, Getz is Getz. The pitcher caught Getz in an attempted steal just moments later.)

Especially ones who can neither hit nor field. Jesus.

That 5 hole dribbler through Johnson should seal his fate.

Losing 2 of 3 to the Marlins....quite sad. Not a good sign heading to Detroit. Could be the beginning of the end. Too many injuries.
