Royals Dismal Season Seals Manager Trey Hillman's Fate
Kansas City, Mo. – After the Royals snapped their 7-game losing streak on Thursday at Kauffman Stadium, it was announced that manager Trey Hillman was fired. The Royals defeated the Cleveland Indians, 6-4. KCUR's Greg Echlin has more on the chain of events.
Royals General Manager Dayton Moore told Hillman after Wednesday night's game he was making the change. Hillman didn't want to end his Royals manager career with a losing streak, so he was granted permission to stay on one more game with Zach Greinke on the mound.
Though Greinke picked up his first win of the season, Hillman knows the team's 12 and 23 won-loss record sealed his fate. "In a bottom line business with a record of only having 12 wins so far on May 13th, you know, that's not what you're looking for," says Hillman.
Ned Yost was named Hillman's replacement for the rest of the season. Yost previously managed the Milwaukee Brewers from 2003-2008.
