Adalberto Mondesi hit a home run for the KC Royals against Detroit Wednesday afternoon. So did Salvador Perez.
The Royals scored first, and even led for three innings, feats they’ve rarely accomplish lately.
But in the end, Kansas City lost again. The Royals blew their 3-1 lead in the seventh, surrendered runs in the seventh and eighth, and found their two ninth-inning scores insufficient. The result was a 6-5 loss that sealed the Tigers’ sweep of the clubs’ three-game series.
This sixth straight defeat, the club’s 11th in 12 games, puts the Royals in prime position to challenge the 11-game losing streak that ruined their May.
