The "Thread of Shame" moniker seems particularly appropriate today. Three straight losses to the last-place Royals after sweeping three games last weekend in Tampa Bay? Believe it.
Tigers lose 7-4 to the Royals, putting a rather sour note on what had been an inspiring road trip.
If there's a bright side to the afternoon, it's that the Twins also lost. So Detroit's first-place lead remains at 5.5 games.
We'll have a full recap later this evening. Until then. Go have a drink. Eat some dinner. Think about tomorrow.
