Not a lot has gone right for the Royals this season after winning their first two games. However, second baseman Whit Merriefield entered tonight’s games on a 30 game hit streak dating back to last season. He needed one hit to break the franchise record. In the 7th inning he laid down an RBI bunt single that tied the game and broke the record.
Unfortunately for the Royals they gave up the go ahead run in the top of the 9th and couldn’t get a run across with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th losing 6-5. Now at a nine game losing streak they finish the series against the Mariners tomorrow with pregame at 11:30 and first pitch at 12:15 on Star 98.9 KQQF.
