For the first time in 15 years, the Kansas City Royals have come out of Seattle with a sweep. Yesterday, the Royals won for the 10th time in 13 games with a come from behind 7-3 win.
When things are going right for a team, they can do no wrong. In the eighth, Seattle reliever Brandon League walked the first two batters he faced while trying to hold a 3-2 lead. Alberto Callaspo had the bunt sign on throughout his at-bat to get runners to second and third, but failed each attempt. So, with two strikes, he just swung away and hit a three run homer. It was apart of a four run inning and sparked the Royals to their win.
Kyle Davies got a no-decision. He didn’t pitch all that bad, except to Casey Kotchman who hit a solo homer in the second which tied the game after Billy Butler’s sac fly gave KC a 1-0 lead in the first. Davies later walked a batter, one of four on the night, then gave up a two-run homer to Kotchman giving Seattle a 3-1 lead in the sixth.
Butler picked up another RBI on a solo homer in the ninth that was reviewed by replay.
