In the sixth inning of a 8-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox, yet another defeat for a reeling Kansas City club that cannot afford in September, manager Ned Yost handed Crow a jug of gasoline. Crow doused it atop a fire created by starter Jason Vargas, giving up a bases-loaded home run to Boston’s Daniel Nava. With the loss, the Royals fell to a game and a half behind Detroit in the American League Central after the Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 6-4 earlier Sunday.

The 1985 Royals: It seems like forever

How long ago was it? Ronald Reagan was president. “The Breakfast Club” was playing in something called a videocassette recorder. New Coke was an instant bust. And a Norwegian band called A-ha reigned atop the pop charts with “Take on Me.”
