Game 34: That was a gut punch.
Ugh. Another great start from our rotation, another wasted effort from the offense. Granted, it’s hard to hold on to 2-1 leads, even against teams like the vaunted Royals. AJ pitches seven innings of 1 H, 1 ER ball, and gets bupkiss for the effort. Even our bullpen, outside of Buddy Carlyle, was great.
The problem was of course, the offense. When you only manage two runs for the whole game until the 10th when you tack on one more to tie it at three a piece, that’s usually not a good sign. Grandy went 2-5 with 2 RBI and Jorge went 2-3 with an RBI and that was the extent of our offense. How the heck do you club 12 hits but only net three runs out of it? You know what, don’t tell me.
Just please win tomorrow night so that we’re not going into the Boston series on a low note.
