Royals Drop Fifth Straight

Game Date: May 13, 2009  
Kansas City @ Oakland
A’s 7, Royals 2 / Box Score
WP: Outman(1-0), LP: Bannister (3-1)
KC Home Runs: Jacobs (7)
Royals Record: 18-16 / Record in May 6-6

The Royals went on five day road trip and they left their offense at home. Brian Bannister pitched well, taking a shutout into the sixth inning, but he had to leave the game with a stiff shoulder. The A’s put a five-spot on the board in the seventh inning and that was more than enough to win. The losing streak has reached five. But the Royals return home now to begin a new series against the Orioles. Big crowds are expected and hopefully that energy will spark the offense.
