There may not be a worse feeling in sports than what a pitcher feels as they’re being absolute rocked. The Royals have experienced that a few times. We all remember Jeremy Guthrie’s 11-run first inning at Yankee Stadium back in 2015. Not to be out-done, Edinson Volquez threw maybe the worst inning in baseball history back a year later in one of the worst starts in baseball history.
Two of the worst starts in Major League history completed by pitchers on the same team, just a season apart. The Royals have always had a knack of sucking in spectacular fashion.
