KANSAS CITY — Ned Yost is determined not to Yost it up tonight. He just got done telling the media that “If we’ve gotta use Herrera for six outs, we will. If we’ve gotta use Davis for six outs, we will.”
No mention of using Greg Holland longer, but one hopes an extra inning is on the table for him too. Yost and the Royals are literally in the position of there being no tomorrow. His hook on Yordano Ventura should be quick. And if he gets through, say, three innings, there should be no other pitcher in this game besides the Royals’ big three. Maybe even if he gets through two.
It’s been 29 years. You may never get back again. If you’re gonna die anyway, make sure you fire all your bullets before they kill ya, Ned.
