Royals end road trip with a whimper in 6-3 loss to A’s

Kansas City Royals fans have seen their favorite team go on long losing stretches where the losses that pile up are virtually indistinguishable from each other. An example: Today, the Royals lost a game to the Oakland Athletics. The Royals’ starter, a much-hyped member of the 2018 draft class, gave up a bunch of runs and was chased from the game. Meanwhile, the Royals’ offense was anemic and failed to capitalize on opportunities. I could have been referring to either game from this weekend, but today’s specific result was a 6-3 loss.

Let’s start with the offense, which went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position.
