Royals can’t hold leads, fall 6-5 in 12 to Padres
Question of the Day
The Royals held a one-run lead on two occasions late in the game, but couldn’t close it out as they ran their season-high losing streak to five games.
“It’s a tough loss for the guys, especially having the lead twice late,” he said. “But at the end of the day, the starting pitching is throwing well and we hit the ball well (Monday night).”
“Coming on the heels of (Sunday’s) win, it’s great,” Padres manager Bud Black said. “We are seeing subtle signs. These are the kind of games that can lift guys.”
Denorfia led off the inning with a single off Louis Coleman before Collins came on. After a sacrifice, Alonso reached on a bloop double to left to bring up Venable.
Mike Moustakas hit an RBI single to score Salvador Perez in the 12th off Tim Stauffer (1-0) to give the Royals a brief lead.
“Any time you lose, it’s painful, it hurts, especially when you’re struggling a little bit,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said.
Gyorko’s solo homer handed Holland his first blown save in eight chances.
Hosmer hit his first homer of the season, a solo shot off Nick Vincent, to put Kansas City ahead 4-3 in the seventh after Grandal tied the game at 3 in the bottom of the sixth with a three-run homer off Kansas City rookie Yordano Ventura.
