Judging the Royals

The Royals come back with a five-run seventh

Down 2-0 against the Detroit Tigers with Justin Verlander on the mound, Billy Butler led off the seventh inning with a single. If you were wondering why Ned Yost didn’t pinch run for Billy, there were several reasons: 1. Pinch-running for Billy would probably cost Butler an at-bat later in the game. 2. Billy was not the tying run. 3. Ned Yost wanted to take the lead right there.
