Yes, it’s a whole new ballgame

To recap …

  • The Angels, with best home record in the Majors, open up 0-2 in Angel Stadium.
  • The Royals, a poor last in the Majors in home runs, win consecutive extra-inning games on home runs.
  • A Clayton Kershaw-Adam Wainwright “duel” winds up 10-9.
  • Jon Lester can’t hold a 7-3 eighth-inning lead.
  • Clayton Kershaw can’t hold a 6-2 seventh-inning lead.
  • Mike Trout, after the hype machine stops whirring, is 0-for-8.
  • Oh, and the Pirates get an early dismissal with an 8-0 loss in the NL Wild Card, their most lopsided shutout defeat since Aug. 1 … of 2013.
So … next time someone mentions that October is a whole different animal — don’t argue.
