Not the ideal start to a road trip...

Francis seems to have reverted back to his shitty start to the season after a few strong outings recently. Tonight was his shortest outing in 2008, and another horrible 1st inning. A disappointing loss.

A textbook 2008-style RISP bases loaded inning ending double play there in the second when we had Bannister on the ropes.

I'm having a little trouble typing this, but the Royals are pretty much a hot team right now. Won 8 of their last 9 games and have supplanted these Rockies as the most successful of the interleague teams record-wise. This visit to KC isn't timed too well as it turns out. Sorta recall last year losing 2 of 3 from KC at home and pretty much bottoming out for the season, before slowly surging and then of course...surging in spectacular fashion to close out the season and the start of the playoffs. Love to see that again, but I'm not holding my breath.

Pretty horrible game all around, aside from Holliday's HR. Not sure why Francis was left in the game after we pulled wihtin 2. Jeff was getting belted as soon as the next inning started. Should've gotten the axe at that point.

Equally-discouraging, Tulo looked like the same clueless hitter that he looked like before going on the DL.

Thankfully, we have Jorge coming to save our ass tomorrow (uh.......).
