Hosmer Sends Tribe to Another Defeat; Royals 2, Indians 1

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.

The Indians tallied their run in the fifth when Michael Bourn singled, stole second, stole third and scored on Salvador Perez’s throwing error.

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)

  1. Its interesting that Murphy was traded during the game; after all, who’d want a .296 hitter in the lineup when Moss, replete with 104 strikeouts and almost uncountable men left in scoring position, in the lineup?

    The game also served as something of a reminder of the myth of stolen bases/ the Indians had 6, yet failed to score an earned run.

    Fascinating that the radio team is so steadfast in reminding us about Nick Swisher’s ‘progress.’. One would guess he’ll be available just in time for September call-ups, and lose his ABs to the likes of Jesus Aguilar.

    What a team.

    PS- where is Mike Aviles on all-time GIDP vis-à-vis Cleveland Indians? Last night’s was a beauty, right on time.
