Royals walk off on Brewers

The KC Royals need a solo home run from Raul Mondesi in the bottom of the tenth with one out to beat the visiting Milwaukee Brewers, 1-0. The two teams combined for a total of eight hits.

kansas-city-royals-logo-1586891Ian Kennedy made the start for the Royals and pitched a gem, throwing six scoreless innings. He allowed just three hits and walked two, while striking out seven. The Brewers got a leadoff double in the fifth and did not have another base runner against Kennedy or the Royals bullpen.

Chris Young, Mike Minor, Peter Moylan, and Eric Stout combined for four scoreless innings of relief with three strikeouts.

Prior to Mondesi’s homer in the 10th inning, the Royals last base runner was a two out single from Cheslor Cuthbert in the sixth (he had just entered the game on defense at first base in the top half of the inning). Eric Hosmer returned to the lineup and went 0-for-1 with a walk.


*Prior to the game, manager Ned Yost named lefty Danny Duffy the Royals’ Opening Day starter. Not a bad week for Duffy, who help Team USA win the World Baseball Classic on Wednesday.

**The Royals have just four more games left this spring in Surprise (their last two are at home), before heading to Texas for two exhibition games against the Rangers next weekend. They have some interesting moves still to make.


About Jen Nevius

I first became a KC Royals fan way back in 1995 when I attended my first Wilmington Blue Rocks game. I fell in love with minor league baseball then and began following the Royals as former Blue Rocks clawed their way to the big leagues. 3+ years ago I started covering the Royals for Aerys Sports, but since the site has been shut down, I am going out on my own.
