Royals Swept in Anaheim

Game Date: May 10, 2009  
Kansas City @ Anaheim
Angels 4, Royals 3 / Box Score
WP: Shields (1-2), LP: Wright (0-1), SV: Fuentes (9)
KC Home Runs: None
Royals Record: 18-14 / Record in May 6-4

Too many defensive problems late in the game were costly for the Royals in this one. Jose Guillen failed to come up on a ball he could have caught—letting it fall in for a single. Jamey Wright tossed a ball into center field in what should have been a double play to end the seventh inning. Miguel Olivo dropped a throw to home plate that should have produced an out. When the smoke cleared, the Angels scored three runs in the seventh inning to take the lead. Torii Hunter made a beautiful catch in the ninth inning—going over the wall to pull a home run ball back. Tomorrow seems like the perfect time for a day off. The Royals begin a new two-game series in Oakland on Tuesday.
