VIDEO: Ryan Raburn's 'throw' helps Mike Moustakas score
The first run of the Indians-Royals game Thursday came in the bottom of the eighth, and it was on possibly the worst throw we'll see all season.
The Indians-Royals game in Kansas City Thursday evening was quite the odd one. Corey Kluber (underrated ace, by the way) had a perfect game through 6 1/3 innings. The Indians only had one hit of their own, at that time, off Danny Duffy. The game went into the bottom of the eighth tied, 0-0.
And then this happened:
The oddities didn't stop there. Greg Holland, Kansas City's All-Star closer who entered the game 26-of-27 in save chances, blew a save in the ninth.
Kluber would then hold the Royals down in the bottom of the ninth to send the game to extras. Kluber's final line? 9 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 10 K. Decent. Also, this:
Corey Kluber is 1st Indians pitcher to take a no-decision in an outing with 9+ IP, 10+ K, 0 BB since Sept. 17, 1963 (Pedro Ramos).— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) July 25, 2014
And the Royals won it in 14, 2-1. They racked up a whopping (note sarcasm!) five hits in 14 innings and won the game.
