"We didn't pitch good, we certainly didn't play very good defense and we didn't hit," manager Kirk Gibson said. "It's a game that we'd like to quickly forget. They pounded us."
"Everything I threw was kind of toward the middle of the plate," Miley said. "It really wasn't my night at all."

Nori Aoki hit his first home run of the season in the 5th, a grand slam no less. It was one of three home runs hit in the inning, propelling the Royals to an 8 run frame and a 12-2 victory.
