Playoff teams win this type of game

The Royals blew a critical game Tuesday night because the bullpen and the defense — their two greatest strengths this season — let them down. They lost 5-3 to the Cleveland Indians in front of an announced crowd of 21,685. You may remember this one as the moment a playoff chase faded. Because playoff teams don’t lose games like this. And, man, it could’ve turned the other direction.
