Today I am having the exact opposite problem that I had the past 2 games. I now have several players that deserve to be "stud of the game" today. I am going to give it to Soria because he was perfect in every way in the 9th, earning his 3rd save of the season. Tomko actually pitched 5 shutout innings and he, along with Alex Gordon, deserve consideration today as well. Butler was 3 for 4 at the plate today and knocked in 2 doubles. Great road trip for the Royals going 4-2.
Stud of the Game:
Joakim Soria: 1 IP, 1 Save, 3 K, 0 BB, 0 H (in other words he was awesome)
Bum of the Game:
Ross Gload: 0 for 4, 2 K, 2 runners left on base
The Royals will be playing the Yankees in their home opener on Tuesday.
