Lalalala can’t hear you.
Royals 11, Tigers 4
Losing to Yordano Venture isn’t bad. But Max Scherzer (15 GS, 98.1 IP, 3.84 ERA, 3.26 FIP, 2.1 fWAR) allowing 10 runs, well that’s downright depressing. Max struck out five and walked one in four innings, but he surrendered two home runs and ten hits in the effort that included a 51 pitch second inning. The Tigers put together a few runs over the course of the game, which is nice, but there’s only so much you can do when your pitching staff hangs 11. I would recommend that you don’t look at the standings page after this one and I’ll spare you the details. Not a whole lot to like in a month of things not to like. It’ll be Drew Smyly (10 GS, 60.1 IP, 3.58 ERA, 4.48 FIP, 0.4 fWAR) on the mound Wednesday afternoon.
The Moment: Eugenio Suarez makes a dandy snag on a liner.
