Lack of Offense, Guillen Mistake Costly

Game Date: May 8, 2009  
Kansas City @ Anaheim
Angels 4, Royals 1 / Box Score
WP: Palmer (3-0), LP: Meche (2-3), SV: Fuentes (8)
KC Home Runs: None
Royals Record: 18-12 / Record in May 6-2

Matt Palmer kept Royals hitters off balance all night while Gil Meche kept it close. In the bottom of the sixth, with the Angels leading 2-1, Jose Guillen simply missed a fly ball he should have caught and Howie Kendrick ended up with a two-run inside the park home run (which should have been an error instead) and that seemed to seal the Royals fate. If you are looking for a positive, Kyle Farnsworth pitched two scoreless innings—his sixth straight outing without giving up a run. You know what comes next—Zack Greinke Day. Go Zack.
