Omaha came to town

This week the Omaha Royals came on down to hallowed Zephyr Field in the suburbs of New Orleans where Tony Pena led the immortal 2001 Z's to a co-championship.  Using his knowledge gained on how to manage the game the right way, he proceeded to lead the Royals to a magical baseball winning percentage.  The O-Royals were here for a four game series, ultimately taking 3 out of 4.   I was only able to attend tonight's game which the Royals won 6-1.  I'm no scout so my insight won't be helpful.

Brad Salmon went 5 innings and gave up a mere one hit for zero runs.

Billy Butler at first base had a 2-run double and a no-doubter solo HR in garbage time.  He had half of Omaha's RBI tonight.

Jason Smith at SS beautifully avoided an 0-5 performance by getting a single in the aforementioned garbage time.

Shane Costa accentuated a masterful 0-4 with a walk at the plate by gracefully dropping a foul fly ball to RF resulting in an error, but made the catch when it mattered when the next batter hit an easy fly ball to him in fair territory.

Shealy DHed.  Oh yeah, Maier and Lubanski also played.

Except for Gookie Dawkins being an awesome name, that's about it.

Sadly I missed Berroa by a week.
