M’s avoid sweep

ryals0713 013.jpg
Brandon Morrow got back in the saddle and notched a save, retiring last night’s home run hero, David DeJesus, on a flyball to left to end a 4-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.
Sean Green gets the win, largely because of that boneheaded play by Royals shortstop Mike Aviles on that rundown between third and home. The Royals had Adrian Beltre dead-to-rights in a rundown. But a high throw went over the third baseman’shead. Aviles, backing the play up, made a great basehanded stab of the ball. But instead of throwing home to get Beltre, he for some reason tried to throw to second in a futile attempt to nab Willie Bloomquist.
The M’s will take it.
