Despite Castellanos home run, Tigers fall to Royals

Despite Castellanos home run, Tigers fall to Royals”

Monday's 7-6 victory might have been his best defensive effort yet in the Detroit outfield.

"Mikie Mahtook flies out to left fielder Alex Gordon". "I just timed my jump perfectly and I was able to make a good catch". Kansas City is now 12-4 in day games since July.

Mahtook blasted what looked like a home run to leftfield, only for Royals outfielder Alex Gordon to make an impressive, leaping grab to rob Mahtook at the wall. But at least these games effectively don't mean anything now that the Tigers have made it clear they are in rebuild mode and are also 22 games back in the AL Central Division.

"Those plays were a huge part of this win", Royals manager Ned Yost said. "In a one-run game, they were the difference".

The Tigers are 0-5 since trading stars Justin Verlander and Justin Upton and have been outscored 36-11 during that span. Maurer struck out Efren Navarro before James McCann and Jeimer Candelario singled to put the potential winning run on base.

Scott Alexander then came on and got Mahtook to ground out giving Alexander his third save of the season. "I just wanted to attack the bottom of the zone". Four pitchers (Buck Farmer, Jordan Zimmermann, Chad Bell and Lewicki) have allowed exactly five runs.

The Royals scored a run in the first when Whit Merrifield scored on a Eric Hosmer single. Jose Ramirez hit a line drive fly ball that somehow hit the yellow padding of the left field wall and bounced straight up in the air. "I guess you could say he hurt us a little with his defense". "Plays like that can really deflate an offense".

Shortstop Alcides Escorbar and catcher Salvador Perez added to the cushion with a pair of solo shots in the seventh and eighth innings.

Royals: RHP Kelvim Herrera (forearm strain) was not available for Monday's game, but could pitch later in the three-game series. He will consult a specialist about the injury, which has been a problem since last season, and could be out for the year. With Verlander traded, Fulmer injured and everyone else having sub par seasons or getting their first taste in the majors, Sanchez is the veteran presence on the staff.

"He got in trouble when he was up in the zone, both the curveball and the fastball", Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. "We've got a bunch of young guys without a lot of experience, and we're playing against one of the best teams in baseball and facing some of the best pitchers in baseball".
