The Kansas City Royals evened their record at 2-2, after defeating the Detroit Tigers 14-6 on the road last (Monday) night.
The Royals rallied back from an early four run deficit.
Third baseman Maikel Franco who signed with Kansas City as a free agent this past offseason, belted his first 2 homeruns for the club, a solo shot in the 2nd inning and a three run jack in the fourth.
Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred says he believes that his leagues health protocols are working, despite an outbreak of COVID-19 among the Miami Marlins.
The team had at least 11 players and 2 coaches test positive over the past 2 days, forcing last night’s and today’s home games against the Baltimore Orioles to be postponed.
Manfred told MLB Network during an interview yesterday (Monday) that he does not put this in the nightmare category.
The commissioner said that is why they have expanded rosters, and have the pool of additional players.
Pending test results the Marlins are scheduled to resume play tomorrow (Wednesday) in Baltimore.
