The Royals fell to 0-10 against the Major League’s best team. Carlos Guillen’s walk-off home run in the ninth gave the Tigers a 10-9 win over Kansas City.
For the second consecutive night, the Royals blew a 4-0 lead. This time, they built the lead only to lose it, and then tie it up with three runs in the eighth before reliever Jeremy Affeldt delivered the fatal pitch that Guillen deposited over the fence.
Mark Teahen had two hits including a home run to go along with three RBIs for the Royals. David DeJesus’ bases loaded triple tied the game in the eighth; he finished with two hits and three runs driven in as well.
Angel Berroa also homered for KC.
Mark Redman made the start for Kansas City but was yanked after giving up four runs on five hits in five innings. Elmer Dessens gave up four runs – three earned -, Ambiorix Burgos surrendered one run in 1.2 innings, and losing pitcher Affeldt retired just one batter before Guillen stepped to the plate.
