“Yeah, it was a clunker man.” Those were the words used by Royals manager Ned Yost to describe his team’s 9-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy each drove in three runs, as Davis, who leads the majors with 97 RBIs, drove in a pair of runs with a sixth-inning double and another with a sacrifice fly in the first inning.
The lost was tagged to Wade Davis, who dropped his fourth straight decision. Davis (4-9) gave up four runs, two earned, in 2.2 innings, while allowing seven hits and three walks. Davis’ ERA during these last four losses is 10.91. He’s given up 21 runs and 24 hits and 12 walks. Davis has only one win in his past 11 starts.
