The Royals are 2-31 when trailing after eight innings

Nothing is more exciting than a bottom of the ninth, come from behind win—mainly because they don’t happen very often. So far this season, when the Royals trail after eight innings their record is 2-31. It works the other way as well: when the Royals lead after eight innings their record is 23-2. Some of these games were blowouts, but even when a game is close, it’s clear that it’s hard to come from behind and win a game in the ninth inning. Tuesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Tigers was no exception.
