Yordano Ventura opens up

If you want to know what went wrong for Yordano Ventura and the Royals on Sunday, take a look at the first two batters in the fifth inning. The score was 3-0 Twins—the Royals still had a shot—and Ventura had the inning’s leadoff hitter, Trevor Plouffe, 0-2. Catcher Salvador Perez set up low and away—why give a guy 0-2 anything to hit?—but Ventura missed high in the zone. Plouffe hit a triple.
