Bo Porter calls Astros 7-2 loss to Royals, the worst game played
It doesn’t look like the Houston Astros will be winning their series against the Kansas City Royals this weekend.
Astros fell to the Royals 7-2 on Saturday night, after their 4-2 loss on Friday.
According to the Associated Press, Astros manager Bo Porter commented, “That was probably the worst game we played all year.”
Erik Bedard, starting pitcher for the Astros, played for 4 2/3 innings and allowed eight hits in addition to six runs, according to MLB.com, while Kansas City’s Ervin Santana pitched for seven innings and only gave up two runs and allowed five hits.
“Santana pitched good. He was throwing strikes, getting people off balance and getting outs,” Bedard said to the Wichita Eagle. “On the contrary, when I pitched, they got hits and scored runs.”
On the offense side, while the Royals were able to score runs, the Astros struggled and it was in the stretch of five innings when Astros’ Matt Dominguez scored a single, one of the two runs that the team scored in this game.
“I think Erik, even though he battled, there were some plays that probably should have been made that were not made,” Porter said. “Make no excuse about it, he battled.”
The Astros face the Royals for their last game of the series on Sunday afternoon.
