Hosmer Sends Tribe to Another Defeat; Royals 2, Indians 1
Mike B. | On 29, Jul 2015
Trevor Bauer pitched a complete game, allowing just two runs and striking out six, but Eric Hosmer homered in the ninth to give Kansas City a 2-1 win on Tuesday night. The loss was their sixth straight defeat and eighth in a row at home. The Indians have not lost eight in a row at home since 1975.
Bauer allowed only five hits, rebounding from a couple tough starts. He was a bit unlucky, as the Royals scored their first run in the fourth when a Lorenzo Cain fly ball popped out of Brandon Moss’ glove when Moss appeared to make a great catch. Hosmer followed with an RBI single.
W: Wade Davis (7-1)
L: Trevor Bauer (8-8)
S: Greg Holland (22)
HR: Hosmer (11, 9th inning off Bauer 0 on, 2 Out)
