Once again our pitching was lights out! Greinke went 8 strong innings and goes to 2-0 on the season. He lowered his ERA to 0.60 in the process. John Buck got the Royals on the board in the 5th with a solo HR, his first of the year. Another interesting stat is that Joey Gathright recorded his 6th steal of the season, but got caught on trying to get his 7th steal. Guillen ended up leaving 5 runners on base going 1-4...and actually raised his batting average to .152. Great game in crappy weather. The boys in blue go for the sweep tomorrow at 7:10 CST.
Stud of the Game:
Zach Greinke - 8 shutout innings, 6 hits, 2 K, 2 BB, great outing!
Bum of the Game:
Tony Pena Jr. - 0 for 4, 1K, batting average now a pathetic .040
Guillen was going to get Bum of the Game leaving 5 runners on base, but he did manage to get a hit and 1 RBI, so Pena Jr. edges him out tonight.
