Process Vindicated as Royals Win Third Straight Game

Is there anything better than beating the Twins? With three straight wins, the Royals are now in fourth place.

  • Let's start with the starting pitching, which again wasn't good. Teaford accomplished nothing beyond mere existence for the Royals today, but I suppose someone had to. He was there. And because he lasted just four innings the bullpen had another long night. The odd thing was, Ned didn't use Tim Collins.
  • The Royals got two-run homers from Alex Gordon and Billy Butler, just like we all dreamed about back in 2006. Gordon went 2-3 with two walks and is slowly raising his season stat line back to respectability. He even had a steal. Even robbed a Twin of a HR.
  • Now if we could get Eric Hosmer back above .200.
  • Alcides Escobar hit his seventh double of the young season. I'm amazed.
