Pitcher John Lamb can’t survive first inning as Royals lose 7-6 to Brewers

Pitcher John Lamb, who early in camp emerged as one of the Royals’ reasons for optimism, responded with a distressing effort in a 7-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. He allowed four runs and could not finish the first inning. His pacing was scrambled and his pitches ineffective. One scout clocked his velocity at 86-89 mph.
