Game 103- Royals 8, Indians 7 (37-66)
By the way, just as a general question-- how in the hell are the Braves in first place?? Anyway, the Royals are enjoying their first winning streak since mid July, completing a miraculous come from behind series win over the Tribe. Take that Indians!! Just when you had designs on moving into second place (hello White Sox collapse), you ran into a Royals buzzsaw!

D.A.R.Y.L May pitched a pretty good game, allowing only 2 runs to a pretty good Indians lineup. May's recent mini-run of 5 or more Ks came to a crashing halt, only K'ing 2 on the day. Still, this was the version of May that the Royals were excited about having in the rotation at the beginning of the year, and it was good to see him do a decent job.

Scott Sullivan, on the other hand, was not too good. I know its blasphemy to suggest as much, but I think Sully's rubber arm might be a little tired. He's been rough the last few outings, and continued down that path today, nearly blowing the game in his 1.2IP, giving up 5 hits and 3 runs.

Congrats to John Buck... the batting average continues to climb, and he managed to homer and steal a base in the same game, which 2 weeks ago I would have argued was impossible, given that that feat would have required being on-base twice in the same game.

Incredibly Low Batting Averages Update

Relaford- .206
Nunez- .191 (welcome to Missouri by the way Abraham)
