Memorable Debut for Royals Rookie


A Royals rookie was the hero in a comeback win against the Angels on Saturday.


Kansas City trailed 8-2 in the 7th inning, looking to avoid their 11th consecutive loss. The team battled back to tie the game at 9-9 going to the bottom of the ninth inning.


Rookie Samad Taylor, making his MLB debut, made the most of his first big league hit.


Taylor had been just promoted from Triple-A Omaha, where he hit .304 with 37 runs batted in and 34 stolen bases.


He says this is something he couldn't even dream of.


The Royals would lose two of three games to the Angels, and will embark on a road trip this week, with the first stop to battle the division rival Detroit Tigers.
