The Twins beat the Royals; a sixth-inning walk changed the game

Bruce Chen giving up six runs in the tenth inning is going to get a lot of attention, but if you want to dig a little deeper, take a look at the sixth inning. The Royals tied the game in the fifth; 4-4. Starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie went back to the mound needing a shutdown inning and couldn’t provide one; he walked the Minnesota Twins leadoff hitter Chris Parmelee and things went downhill from there.
