Game 85- Royals 11, Orioles 7 (31-54)
Thats what I get for being negative I guess. The Royals stormed into Baltimore on the heels of one of the worst 3-5 game stretches in baseball history and somehow scored 20 runs in 3 games. Perhaps even more remarkably, Darrell May threw a complete game shutout on friday night. Maybe he'll have another couple good starts and the Royals can deal him for a C+ prospect or something. Who knows??

The other highlight of the Baltimore series (by the way, has winning 2 of 3-- hardly an awesome feat-- ever seemed more improbable or positve?) was the return of Mike Sweeney. Productivity, this is Mike, Mike, Productivity. Sweeney's small sample July line is now .474/.474/1.000. Still waiting on that first walk, but I'm sure it'll come eventually.

Still, the Royals are at 31-54, they are 2-8 in July, and 2-13 since the Beltran trade. Nevertheless, I would have bet even money that the Royals would be 29-56 at this point, so, you've got to take the good with the bad.
