Bad case of Inge

Another lead built and lost by KC tonight in a 5-3 loss to Detroit, although this one was fairly small at 2. Brandon Inge and 4 Royals errors combined to doom KC tonight. Inge had 3 RBI and contributed to another run by singling to right in the 6th on a hit that Terrence Long flubbed to allow Nook LaLoosh, I mean Logan, to score. Inge then proceeded to score the Tigers' 5th run so he had a hand in each score for the Tigres. Teahen (who's having a bad time defensively lately), Berroa, Long and Jimmy Gobble all had miscues in the game but they only led to one unearned run. J.P. Howell had an actually OK start fouled up in the loss as he gave up 3 R (2 ER) in 4+ innings pitched before being pulled in the 5th. Mike Wood gave up 2 in 1 2/3 IP to get the loss but Gobble pitched 2 good innings in the game. Sweeney and Stairs had 2-hit games, Long, Berroa, Gotay and Costa had 0-fers. Mistakes tend to bite into teams and, when you make, 4, whether they lead to runs or not, they're no good.

The Royals need a win tomorrow to salvage a split of the series. Runelvys is the guy to take the ball against Mike Maroth. I can see the Royals getting it done -- I'll call a 6-4 win. Then it's on to Cleveland.
