Thanks to an 11-walk game, and a 23-walk series against the Chicago White Sox, the Royals have climbed out last place in walks drawn so far this season to 25th.
To give an example of how bad the Royals have been at drawing walks over the least 16 seasons, finishing the season at 25th in walks would be tied for the second best season under Dayton Moore. The best season was a finish at 23rd, 12 years ago.
Unfortunately for the Royals after scoring only six runs in the series agains the Yankees, they are now last in that offensive category.
The Royals have played 20 games, two fewer than league average to this point. The record is 7-13, good for 4th in the Al Central.
