Royals Win in Eleven Innings

Game Date: July 28, 2009 
Kansas City @ Baltimore
Royals 4, Orioles 3 (11 inn.) / Box Score
WP: Wright (1-3), LP: Baez (4-4), SV: Soria (17)
KC Home Runs: Bloomquist (3), Butler (11)
Royals Record: 40-59 / Record in July 7-16

A game-tying home run by Willie Bloomquist in the eighth inning and two successive games in which the bullpen played a major role in a win—what in the world? Throw in another good outing by Brian Bannister, a swinging bunt of sorts by Mark Teahen in the eleventh inning, and a timely two-out hit by John Buck and the Royals have won three of their last four games.

That’s a lot of things going our way just to win a game by one run, but when wins are as hard to come by as they have been this month, it doesn’t matter. You’re just happy to get them. Let’s just hope that it carries over.
