What was originally expected to need a day or two of rest has turned into a more concerning injury for Carlos Gomez. He was out of the lineup again yesterday, a day after he had returned as the DH. Craig Counsell said that the reason Gomez was held out was because wasn't running well and isn't making progress in his recovery. Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that with the injury not healing well, Counsell is considering holding Gomez out all weekend, and maybe even placing him on the disabled list. The team does not want to chance the injury getting any worse, and a trip to the DL may be in order to make sure he gets back to 100%

Yesterday's Results

Royals 3, Brewers 2

The losing streak reached six games, but at least it didn't look as bad this time. The Royals got to Jimmy Nelson early, scoring three runs in the first two innings. However, Nelson calmed down after that and allowed no more runs over five total innings of work. The Brewers did try to rally, scoring two in the fifth to close the score to 3-2. However, they couldn't get past the Royals bullpen and lost again.
