Another scary Royals tidbit: They're hitting .199 as a team. Last team with an AVG under the Mendoza Line in April: The 2003 Tigers - lost 119!

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

The Royals have scored 2 runs or fewer 8 games in a row. Just so you know, the last AL team with a longer single-season streak was Mario Guerrero's '78 A's (9)

The Dodgers' Chris Taylor was running on his own when he thrown out stealing in the eighth inning with Corey Seager at the plate. Justin Turner called it a bad, bad baseball play when he was picked off second to end the game. The Dodgers lost to the Giants 2-1.

Just your typical game-ending pickoff at second base as Buster Posey nails Justin Turner, who was trying to get a good jump as Adrian Gonzalez swing through a 3-1 fastball from Mark Melancon. That was two baserunner kills in the final two innings for Posey, as the Giants win 2-1 and temporarily stop the panic.

The Dodgers' losing streak at San Francisco reached six consecutive games after a 2-1 defeat to the Giants. Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched well, giving up just one run over six innings, but the offense could not do any damage against Giants starter Matt Cain and four relievers. The Dodgers scored their only run on a ground ball fielder's choice from Chris Taylor in the eighth inning.

The Rockies snapped the Nationals' seven-game win streak and now own the best record in the NL. Charlie Blackmon hit the go-ahead homer and Mark Reynolds continues to rake as well. The man who once fanned 223 times in a season, has focused on more contact -- his K rate is down 15 percent from a few years ago -- and it's working with a .329 average and his sixth HR on Monday.

Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu delivered the best start of his comeback, giving up one run over six innings against the Giants. Ryu had made just one start the previous two seasons because of shoulder and elbow issues. It was his second consecutive six-inning start.
