It's the ninth inning, the Indians are ahead by three runs with Kerry Woods on the mound; it is a no-brainier to what is going to happen, right? The Royals will lose yet again.


This scene, makes it time to leave the ballpark or turn the channel and focus on something else.


If you did give up on the Royals tonight, you missed a very exciting comeback win by the Royals.


“Defiantly a great win” said David DeJesus during the on-field after the post-game interview.

After DeJesus drives in a run hitting a triple, Willie Bloomquist drives in the winning run with a sacrifice fly.


“I haven’t seen, since I’ve been year, a comeback like that in our home ballparks,” said Royals manager Trey Hillman.


I totally agree. The energy during the ninth from the fans and the players was almost playoff energy, and  on a Tuesday night in May.


This is the kind of win that helps shape a team. Maybe, just maybe, this team can use this to build moments.


“It (a win like this) can vault ya,” commented Hillman.


This team just might be for real. I predict a winning streak to come out this.
