Back in First Place

Royals get their first back to back complete game performance since 2000. Bannister and Greinke have looked fantastic so far this year! The Royals have gone 13 straight games this season without scoring more than 5 runs, which makes our pitching staff look amazing considering we have 8 wins and are in first place. Billy Butler now has a 13 game hitting streak to start the season. I attended the game on Saturday and am very pleased with my Butler jersey. I got there 2 hours before game started and there was a HUGE line. The Royals manager greeted me at the gate and was the one who game me my jersey so that was pretty neat. Too bad the Royal's bats were as cold as the weather that night...

I know its largely subjective, but how is Grudzielanek your bum of the game? He almost tied the record for most assists in a game when he threw out 10 Mariners at first and he actually got on base with an HBP. Gordon, on the other hand, went 0-4 and contributed next to nothing. That's not to say that I think he's terrible, but last night he provided nothing to the cause.

David, I was unaware of the 10 assist. I do not get the games televised where I live so I base my stats on online articles and stats that I read. Thanks for the info
