Baseball. Good.

Another exciting Royals game last night to close out their series with the Angels.

After another long bedtime battle with Faye, I got in front of the TV in time last night to see Salvador Perez strike out on some inconsistent, bad calls by the home plate umpire. Salvy argued and then got tossed from the game with the score tied 2-2.

Wade Davis gave up a home run to Cole Calhoun in the bottom of the eighth, allowing the Angels to move ahead 3-2, and it was looking like Thursday night again.

But in the bottom of the ninth, the comeback kid Royals did it again. Eric Hosmer walked. Mike Moustakas was intentionally walked and Jerrod Dyson came in to pinch run for him at first. Drew Butera, who came in for Salvy, walked to load the bases. ... Then Alex Rios hit a sacrifice fly to right to score Hosmer and tie the score again at 3-3.

Next up, Paulo Orlando comes up with a chance to win it. He hits a deep fly ball to right center field ... and it looks like it's going to drop ... But ...

In the end, it didn't matter ...

After the game, I caught this piece on Sportscenter about Joe Maddon ... Go Cubs, go!
