FAST REACTION: Royals 9, Twins 3

P.J. Walters was awful again, and the Twins were never really in it.

This happened way too much for my liking tonight.

The game started with a 20-minute rain delay, which turned out to be the highlight of game, as P.J. Walters immediately gave up a 3-run home run to dead center to Eric Hosmer. The situation did not improve, as Walters and the Twins were pasted by Kansas City, who belted four home runs on their way to a 9-3 victory.

In Walters' defense, he did make it out of the first inning tonight, unlike his last start on Saturday in Cleveland. Unfortunately, he only got through three innings tonight and left the Twins in a 6-0 hole for his troubles. I think it is fair to speculate his place in the rotation is tenuous. At best.

The Twins offense, while not culpable for the loss, did have opportunities to make it interesting. However, they left 9 runners on base, so, yeah. Kyle Gibson pitches on Saturday. Let's focus on that.

Positives from tonight: Miguel Sano hit two home runs, and Caleb Thielbar cannot be scored upon.
