Game 151- Royals 7, Devil Rays 6 (56-95)
Well, D.A.R.Y.L didn't get loss # 19, though he easily pitched bad enough to deserve it. May went 6 innings, allowing 8 Hs, 2BBs and 5ERs. Is anyone else uninspiried? Luckily for him, the Royals rallied back from a 4-3 D-Rays lead and eventually won the game in extra innings. MacDougal and Affeldt even combined for 2 scoreless innings, picking up the win and the save (in reverse order from last season).

I can't remember the last time we had both those guys pitching well in the same game.

Ohh yea, the Royals also won their second straight series! Maybe they won't lose 100 games after all. (Although I'd bet they do.)

All hail Calvin Pickering: 3-5 with 3 doubles. His season line is now :281/.369/.562. We probably won't know till next spring what Pick's role on the next Royals team is... but his mini-hot-streak here in mid-September might be saving his career, or at least, a mini-career in his later years.

The Royals now open up against the Sox, should be an interesting series... two teams going no where and playing scrubs and bizarros (sorry, but Wilton Guerrero again? If this guy makes it to 100 ABs, I don't trust Pena anymore)...
