The Royals lose a "clunker" 9-2

In his postgame press conference, Ned Yost said that anything his team could have screwed up, they did screw up. Start at the beginning: Wade Davis walked the first batter of the game. Three pitches later, Mike Moustakas whiffed on what looked like a double play ball. In the third inning, with a runner on third headed for home, second baseman Miguel Tejada bobbled a groundball and had to take the out at first base instead of preventing the run from scoring. In the fifth inning long reliever Luis Mendoza threw a wild pitch with runners on first and second; even though Salvador Perez cut down the runner trying to advance to second base, a runner did make it to third and then scored on a fly ball. The Royals also allowed the leadoff batter to get on base in seven out of nine innings.
