Judging the Royals

Too many first-pitch fastballs and the Royals lose

Don’t sweat the J.D. Martinez home run; that pitch was a 94-MPH fastball down around the ankles. That’s not a pitch that gets hit for a home run very often. Martinez is hot; he hit a pitcher’s pitch, so you tip your cap. It was the first run Danny Duffy gave up that ought to bother Royals fans. Blame that one on pitch calling.
