Judging the Royals

June 28, 2014

If you want to win, grab a lead before the seventh inning

Here are a few numbers to think about: when the Kansas City Royals trail after six innings, their record is 6-27. When they trail after seven innings it’s 3-31. And when they trail after eight innings it’s 1-33. You can talk all you want about heart and a never-say-die attitude, but if you let the other team take a lead and get to the back end of their bullpen, your chances of winning go way down.
