Kelvin Herrera gets a seventh-inning save

Every day, the Royals provide official game notes to the people who cover the team, and here’s part of what Saturday’s game notes said: When the Royals lead after six innings, they’re 37-2. When they lead after seven, they’re 40-1. And when they lead after eight innings, the Royals are 44-1. Now let’s look at the other side. When the Royals trail after six innings, they’re 8-38. Trailing after seven, they’re 4-42. And when they trail after eight innings, they’re 2-44. So here’s the lesson: Make sure you have a lead after six innings. Saturday night they did.
