Mike Moustakas, who sits on the board of directors of Royals fans disgust, won it for Kansas City last night. He hit a changeup that caught too much of the plate into the right-field seats.
Almost immediately, the minds of those in and around the team go to whats next. Moustakas season numbers are still fairly terrible .119, .213 on-base and .238 slugging percentages in 47 plate appearances. There is a natural inclination to wonder if this is the moment that gets him going, so to speak, that flushes his mind with confidence and sets him on a path to fulfill all that promise weve been hearing about.
Normally, this is all nonsense. Momentum is the next days starting pitcher, and so forth. Last nights home run will feel awfully different if Moustakas goes 0-for-4 with two strikeouts tonight.
