"This is getting really old," Royals manager Buddy Bell said. "We literally did some bad things - getting picked off, doubled off. The kid pitched a good game, but he threw to the same place the whole game and we didn't make adjustments. You've got to have the courage to make adjustments, to live with a plan. It is frustrating."Royals need to go 43-3 to finish .500, 25-21 to avoid 100 losses, 1-45 to avoid losing all of their remaining games.
