Royals start their road trip with a 10-5 loss at Cleveland
Mike Montgomery finally made his first start for the Royals 11 years after being drafted by the team. He had not pitched in over two weeks so this game just gave him some work and you can’t read too much into it. Having said that, he was not good for the Chicago Cubs out of the bullpen so it could also be that he is just having a bad season and will need an offseason to try to turn things around.
The Royals jumped on top in the first inning 1-0. They missed out on some opportunities to put more runs on the board. Montgomery gave the run back in the bottom of the first. Cleveland added four runs in the fourth but the Royals kept fighting back. Whit Merrifield hit a bases loaded triple in the sixth to cut the deficit to 6-5 but once again Cleveland answered in the bottom of the inning. In fact, Cleveland scored in the bottom of all three innings in which the Royals scored. That is a big swing for both teams when that happens.
Whit Merrifield and Alex Gordon each had two hits on the night. The Royals kept up their scoring with five more runs in this game. That should be enough to win many games but the pitching was so bad tonight that it was nowhere near enough on this day.
Tim Hill was the only pitcher to not allow a run in this game. Mike Montgomery allowed five runs in two innings. Brian Flynn did well allowing just one run in three innings. Kevin McCarthy allowed a run in the one inning he pitched. Wily Peralta melted down on the mound getting visibly upset with catcher Meibrys Viloria in his one inning in which he allowed three hits, a walk and three runs.
It’s time for Wily Peralta be released. Bring up Richard Lovelady or frankly any pitcher from Omaha and just let Peralta go.
The Royals play the second game of the series at 6:10pm Saturday night. Jakob Junis will pitch for the Royals against the Indians’ Adam Plutko.
