Things continue to get worse for the Royals.
With Monday's 4-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, Kansas City has now lost 11 games in a row and finished the first homestand of the season with an 0-10 mark at Kaufmann Stadium. Their home losing streak is at 11 games, dating back to last season, and is a club record.
Bruce Chen gave up just three earned runs over seven innings, but the offense could only score one run off nine hits, going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Chen is 0-2 despite a 2.52 ERA.
Eric Hosmer went 2-for-4 with a home run, which was Kansas City's only run of the game. Mike Moustakas and Alcides Escobar each went 2-for-4. Brandon Morrow got the start for Toronto and went 6 2/3 innings, picking up the win, while Francisco Cordero recorded the save.
The Royals now go on the road for nine games. Maybe a change of scenery will turn things around.
