Donuts for this dozen?

How about a dozen. Hits? Nope, 12 straight losses for the Kansas City nine.

The Royals managed to lose yet another game to the Tigers Wednesday evening. The home team's only offense came in the sixth via a three run blast by Matt Stairs. However, the Tigers' offense was propelled by "slugger" Omar Infante who managed to hit his first two round-trippers of the year. The first was off starter Yimmy Yobble who pitched four innings (he was on a 60 pitch limit) and allowed just that one run.

But leave it to the bullpen to save the day. Wood gave up a two run dinger to Brandon Inge in the fifth and then two more runs were plated in the sixth. Then who comes in? How about recently recalled Leo Nunez out of the 'pen. The Royals' official website has a story on Nunez that lists him at 169 pounds. Nunez is 169 lbs just like Berroa is 28 years old. Nope.
Well, Infante launched his second of the game (and season) off Nunez and that was that.

I didn't see Reggie Sanders get thrown out in the eighth with the Royals down by three but I sure heard about it. I will ask anybody reading this to tell me how moving one run into scoring position can directly lead to three runs. He was "trying to get something going" he says. Well, he managed to contribute (along with every other player that took the field) to keeping something going. 12.
