Wow, what a game.
The Royals lost 6-5 to the Tigers on Sunday at Kauffman Stadium, and finished a 2-4 homestand. All four losses were by one run.
Sunday’s game took fans through a roller coaster of emotions and that was just in the final three innings.

The euphoria didn’t last long, however. Detroit’s Justin Upton hit a two-run homer off Joakim Soria as the Tigers grabbed a 6-5 lead. Fury ensued.
In the ninth inning, Alcides Escobar doubled and Dyson nearly hit a two-run homer that would have won it.
Although Dyson’s grounder got Escobar to third, Alex Gordon hit a shot right at second baseman Ian Kinsler with the infield in and Paulo Orlando grounded out. It was another agonizingly close loss for the Royals.
