The Royals have matched their worst record ever, while Darrell May matched the franchises’ record for the most losses by a pitcher. Kansas City fell 5-1 to the Indians on Tuesday and May allowed all five runs to drop his 19th decision of the season—that matched Paul Splittorff’s mark in 1974. The Royals were held to just three hits on Tuesday night and their only run was the result of a couple of Cleveland miscues in the first inning. Angel Berroa advanced to third base on a wild pitch by Indians’ starter Cliff Lee, then he scored on a throwing error by catcher Victor Martinez. After that, it was all Cleveland. The Royals have had one other 100-loss season, when the 2002 squad went 62-100. To avoid their worst season ever, Kansas City will need to win each of their last five games—the Royals longest winning streak this season is three games.
