Royals 8, Padres 0: Hey, At Least There Was A Dinosaur

Denis Poroy

You all saw the dinosaur throw the first pitch, right? That was pretty great. So was hearing Bobby Cressey play the organ. And, well, those are the highlights. The lowlights? Just about everything else. Three errors, 8 runs allowed (4 unearned), a passed ball, a pair of GIDPs, and a measly 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

The Royals took a commanding lead in the first inning, picking up three runs, largely thanks to not one but two errors by Everth Cabrera. A double, a fielders choice, and a sacrifice fly scored another in the third. Andrew Cashner made it through one more scoreless inning before getting pulled. The bullpen didn't fare any better, allowing another 4 runs before all was said and done. I could go into more detail, but I'm not supposed to swear here.

Ian Kennedy toes the rubber tomorrow at 7:10 PM as the Miami Marlins come to town.
