The Royals need a day off as badly as any team could, and they’ll get one today. The Royals were beaten by Seattle, 8-5, meaning they lost every game in a nine game road trip. Closer Ricky Bottalico was victimized once again. After Jermaine Dye hit his league-leading 8th home run of the year to tie the game in the top of the ninth, Bottalico gave up a three run homer to John Olerud in the bottom of the ninth to give the Mariners the victory. The Royals will host Tampa Bay for two games starting tomorrow.
