Game 64- Royals 3, Dodgers 1 (23-41)

It looks like the Royals won't be in jeopardy of becoming the worst team in baseball history after all. After a miserable start to the 2005 season, the Royals are now 10-4 under Buddy Bell and piling up wins just like a normal, solid MLB team would.

Thanks to a standout effort from LimaTime -- 8.0IP, 5H, 1BB, 7K, 1ER -- the Royals squeezed out another win without much offense. I don't know if the Royals are improving their defensive play, or if it is just an extended lucky streak, but their opponents haven't been able to turn balls in play into hits lately, and thankfully (and miraculously) Lima allowed 0 homers tonight.

According to the AP Sweeney has sprained his wrist and elbow, and we'll have to hold our breath tonight and hope for good news tomorrow. Trade him or not, it does no one any good to see Mike out of the lineup, especially since he's already regarded as injury-prone.

I'm a little disapointed by the size of tonight's crowd, like to see more than 21,000 show up for a non-Cardinals/Yankees game every once in awhile., especially since the Royals rely so heavily on ticket sales for revenue.
