Singlin' Royals Needle Tigers to Death

  • The Royals scored 10 runs on Monday, thanks to a 15 hit, 5 walk attack. The Royals cranked out 10 singles, including four by Scott Podsednik.
  • Really, just about everyone hit, but the top of the order was especially potent. Pods went 4-5, and DeJesus was nearly as good, going 3-6. Butler, Guillen, Kendall and Betancourt all had at least two hits, and Getz walked twice. On this day, Dayton really did have an awesome off-season.

 

  • Jose Guillen homered again. He's back! Moxie!
  • Luke Hochevar was solid, and John Parrish may have saved the game. Hillman used Parrish for two innings, which may signal a new role for him, or may have just been an example of the proverbial hot hand being stuck with.
  • It should be mentioned that the bottom of the Tiger lineup, especially catcher Alex Avila and shortstop Ramon Santiago really hurt the Tigers. Both helped defuse rallies all day long, and for their good work, earned the two lowest WPAs of any positional Tigers. Combined, they basically lowered the Tigers' chance of winning by something like 28%.
  • Kyle Farnsworth keeps it interesting, doesn't he?
  • Mitch!
