How do you break up a shutout? Score from first base on an infield popup to ... first base. Naturally.
With two outs in the top of the fifth and Wendle on first base, Willy Adames skied what looked like a routine popup that should have ended the inning and kept the game scoreless. Instead, Royals first baseman Carlos Santana whiffed on the catch. Making matters worse, he airmailed a throw to second trying to nab Adames.
By the time the Royals retrieved the errant throw, Wendle was halfway down the third-base line, cruising in to give the Rays a 1-0 lead. Kevin Kiermaier then singled to score Adames.
Let that be a lesson, kids: A little hustle can go a long way.
