Another poor outing by Luke Hochevar and another defensive nightmare, but the Royals found a way to win anyway. How about that suicide squeeze that Hillman put on with John Buck at third base? I didn’t see it coming the first time when Crisp fouled the pitch off. And I certainly didn’t see it coming the second time, but Crisp got the bunt down, and Buck slid safely into home head first. The Royals salvaged the series, getting a split. They are off today and they will open a new series at home tomorrow against the Indians.
