Escobar Powers Royals Past White Sox

"Headlines no one expected to see last year for $500, please."

  • We probably need to have a discussion about Alcides Escobar's true talent level (I'm thinking Tuesday afternoon), but watching him hit this season has been incredibly enjoyable. Escobar hit two home runs tonight, the first time a Royals shortstop has done that since 1997.
  • Billy Butler, Mike Moustakas, Jeff Francoeur and Chris Getz all had multi-hit games. Francoeur, Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain each drove in a runner, while Escobar drove in three.
  • Luke Hochevar was adequate, allowing three runs over five innings. Hochevar gave up five hits and three walks while striking out four batters. Adam Dunn also crushed a 451 foot round-tripper against Luke.
  • The bullpen was solid tonight. Aaron Crow allowed an inherited runner to score, but Mijares and Holland pitched well. Jonathan Broxton had an uneventful ninth inning to pick up the save. Robert Ford said that the last time Broxton had a 1-2-3 save was June 1st
