This kind of summed up the Royals’ night Monday against the Angels.
A terrible pitch. A catcher who can’t locate the ball. A fortuitous bounce. A late slide.
Add it all up, and Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer was out trying to advance on a wild pitch and the Angels caught a break.
Here is the play:
Garrett Richards threw a terrible pitch. Catcher Carlos Perez initially lost track of the ball, and Hosmer would have been safe had he not slid past second base.
That’s the way it goes sometimes.
