The Royals lose quick

There’s a saying in baseball: if you’re going to lose, lose quick. Approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes after Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber threw the first pitch of the game to Nori Aoki, he threw the last pitch of the game to Alex Gordon. Kluber is another sinker/slider guy and one look at the scorebook tells you he had the sinker working on Thursday; only two fly ball outs. The Royals were either pounding the ball in the ground or striking out for most of the day.
