KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Hmmm. Would have been interesting if left-hander Tim Collins hadn't coughed up three more runs in the ninth (his ERA is now an unsightly 36.00) on Sunday. If Collins had done his job, the Royals could have sent this one in extra innings after rallying for a run in the bottom of the ninth.
