That’s pretty much how Ned Yost, James Shields and Mike Moustakas summed up Monday night’s 8-1 loss to the Yankees. The score was still 2-1 going into the top of the seventh inning, then Martin Prado homered on a 1-1 pitch to put the Yankees up by two. After that, the hits just kept on coming.

It’s a matter of debate whether the 10-1 loss to the Tigers on Friday was more deflating than the bizarre encore Saturday at Kauffman Stadium. But the flat voices and bewildered undertone in the clubhouse Saturday suggested this one would be a chore to shrug off, especially as time shrivels away.
