Royals' Jake Diekman: Takes loss in relief
Diekman (0-3) was charged with the loss against the Tigers on Wednesday after surrendering a run on a hit and a pair of walks over one inning. He struck out two.
The left-hander was asked to preserve a 2-2 tie when he entered in the eighth inning. Unfortunately, he quickly loaded up the bases with a leadoff walk, a double and another free pass, enabling Brandon Dixon to hit a sacrifice fly and score the winning run. Through 31 appearances, Diekman owns a 4.28 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 41:16 K:BB.
