“Rios” was the top Twitter trend in Kansas City on Saturday afternoon.

That can be a good or bad thing, and unfortunately for Royals outfielder Alex Rios, it was the latter.

Here is a sampling of the things fans were tweeting about Rios, who was hitless in four at-bats with two strikeouts in the Royals’ 3-2 loss to the Cardinals. He did have an assist, throwing out Matt Carpenter at second base. But Rios also appeared to make a misplay on another ball.

Some fans also were unhappy with Omar Infante and Rios.
