Red Sox 1, Royals 7: Back in our place

The Royals may be down 2-1 in their series against the Red Sox, but they've still managed to outscore them 12-11 after a dominant Saturday night victory. The Royals gave the Red Sox an unfriendly reminder of who, exactly, is the playoff contender Saturday night, getting to Rubby De La Rosa for five runs in just four innings of work and cruising to a 7-1 blowout win over Boston.

How Not to Succeed at Baserunning

If the Royals lose the AL Central to the Tigers, possibly denying Kansas City its first postseason berth since 1985 , this play in last night's ninth inning in Detroit will undoubtedly be what the team and its bitterly disappointed fans will remember: Trailing 4-2 in the top of the ninth to the Detroit Tigers , in a game the Royals needed to win to maintain their lead over Detroit in the AL Central, they had two runners on against a sweaty Joe Nathan , the proverbial case of "on the ropes." Nathan was taking a long time between pitches, the home fans had grown quiet and the Royals had the meat of their order up with no outs.
