I got the Kansas City Blues. I was looking for a little Kansas City Jazz, but it didn’t happen. I think it’s time to shake things up. I think it’s time to get mythological.
The GIANTS and the Royals met up in Kansas City for the opener of the 3 game inter-league series. Madison Bumgarner pitched a complete game. The Royals got things started with a double followed by a HR in the bottom of the 1st. The GIANTS scored 2 runs in the 3rd: Sandoval hit a single and Morse followed that up with another single moving Pablo over to 2nd. Arias hit an RBI double–he hit 2 doubles in yesterday’s game–scoring Sandoval. Duffy–Go Rookie!–hit an RBI single to plate Morse. Game tied. The Royals scored 2 runs in the 6th, one by a base runner who reached on a GIANTS error. At that point I wasn’t singing the blues, I was crying the blues–in my beer. The final score was:
GIANTS 2, Royals 4

Can’t you just hear Kuip making the call? That’ll jazz things up!
