Royals Pitchers Hand Out Most Walks In Nearly Four Years

This oughta cause some heads to shake at Royals Review:

The Royals gave up 11 walks against the Braves on Sunday, which is the most since Aug. 5, 2006.

Yep, almost four years. On that day the Royals had 14 walks.

Actually, they had 12 the day before that as well.

On Sunday, walks played a major role (as they should when you have 11! 11!). Kyle Davies started things off with seven walks in 4 1/3 innings, a career high. Blake Wood continued things when he walked two in the 8th. They ended up being the winning runs.

So, the model franchise Braves win this battle and the Royals made it easy for them.
