Cleveland hammered by Royals 10-5

The Cleveland Baseball Club lost their second straight game in Kansas City, which will keep them being above .500 for the first time since 2012.

There were a couple of firsts that occurred in the Cleveland Baseball Club’s 10-5 loss in Kansas City Wednesday night. It was the first career loss against the Royals for Cleveland pitcher Zach Plesac. Additionally, it was the 81st loss of the season for Cleveland which will prevent the team from being above .500 for the first time in almost a decade.

Plesac allowed five runs on seven hits with three walks while striking out two. Three of those runs came on the major league leading 48th home run of the season from Royals catcher Salvador Perez in the bottom of the 1st. 

Nick Wittgren would come in the 7th and after recording two outs in the firs three batters, Kansas City would three runs in the inning before hitting into the final out of the inning. 

Justin Garza did not fair any better as he allowed two runs in the 8th. It was a RBI double for Hanser Alberto and RBI single for Cam Gallagher. Gallagher came in for Perez after leaving with an injury. 

There is only one game left in Kanas City before traveling to Texas to wrap up the season. After that the Guardians era in Cleveland will be waiting to begin.
