The Kansas City Royals dropped their second consecutive game to the Oakland Athletics 11-2 behind a lackluster start from rookie Jackson Kowar. Kansas City falls to 30-33 while Oakland moved to 39-27 on the season.
Thursday’s game against the Oakland A’s was one of Mike Minor’s finest performances for the KC Royals this year. He struck out eight batters, and gave up only three hits, one walk and a run, and tossed 106 pitches in seven innings.
Bally Sports Kansas City could be on its own streaming channel next year. Would you pay $23 a month to watch the Royals? That’s the price that Sinclair Broadcasting, which owns Bally Sports Kansas City, is floating to potential investors for their own stand-alone streaming service, according to The New York Post.
They’re either the best average team or the worst average team and there is no in between. The season is barely two months old (though it is now officially longer than 2020) and the Royals have had a 16-9 stretch.
The Los Angeles Angels swept the KC Royals out of Southern California Wednesday night, delivering slumping Kansas City its third embarrassing defeat in as many nights and leaving the Royals winless in the only series they play at Angel Stadium this season.
The Royals stretch their losing streak to five games after getting swept by the Angels. The Royals have started the seven-game road trip 0-3. Kansas City falls to 29-31 on the season while Los Angeles improves to 30-32.
