for the Royals tonight, blowing the lead in the 7th or 8th inning of a game.

I expect the deja vu to rear its ugly head again when at season's end, the Royals surpass the Nationals and finish with the worst record in the majors, again.

That's all for now.

7/17: Up 6-2 after 3, and 7-4 after 6, blow it in 8th inning
7/18: Up 2-1 after 7, blow it in 8th inning
7/19: Up 3-0 after 5, eventually blow lead in 8 inning
7/21 Game 1: Up 5-4 after 5, blow lead in 6th inning
Game 2: Up 2-0 after 2, tied at 2 after 4, eventually give up a 7 run 7th inning that puts them away
7/22: Up 6-2 after 6 innings, give up 2 in the 7th and 5 in the 8th

Great start to 2nd half! So much for the "new K", same old stank on the field.

I also loved how Hillman brings in Soria with 1 out in the 8th inning tonight, only after 2 other relievers walked the bases loaded.

Little late by then Trey, but nice attempt.

Good. Bryce Harper, come on down!

Seriously, though, this organization is pitiful. Moore doesn't know what he's doing. Same for Hillman. Same for most of the roster. Bad, bad times in Kansas City.

i think it's made worse, at least on my end, by the fact that i actually expected this years team to be better. the starting pitching seemed better (i still think it is), but dear god, can't this team just score a fcking run every now and then?

Saw an awesome stat on baseball tonight. The Royals have had 5 losing streaks of 10 games or more since 2005. No other team has had more than 2 such losing streaks in that same time. Way to go!!!!

Hopefully the pen doesn't f this one up too. Hochevar is killing it. 11 strikeouts through 6 innings.

Good and bad about a 6 out save. Great that we got the win, bad is that he probably won't be available on consecutive days now. But, chances are pretty good we won't have save opportunities two days in a row.
I like the 6 out save, but I can understand why the Royals are protecting him.
