Yakety Sax: KC Royals (6/7/11)

Just as with the first 2 versions of the Yakety Sax plays,
Toronto Blue Jays: May 25th
Chicago Cubs: May 17

Sit back and enjoy this video of the KC Royals throwing the ball all over the field

As you listen to this song

The play occurred in the top of the first inning.  Toronto leadoff man Yunel Escobar singled to open the game.  The Royals' Win Probability at that point was 46.5%.  With the #2 hitter, Corey Patterson, at the plate Escobar took off for 2nd.  Catcher Matt Treanor's throw went in to CF where it was retrieved by Melky Cabrera who through to 3rd.  Unfortunately, for the Royals, Mike Aviles couldn't field the Melk Man's throw and Escobar jogged home safely with the run.  When KC was finally able to get the ball back to pitcher Vin Mazzaro their Win Probability stood at 40.4%, a loss of 6% on the play.
