Cactus League - Game 8 Open Thread

It's easy to smile when you never lose. - Christian Petersen

One week in and no losses? It's like utopia in suburban Phoenix.

An amazing run of play.

Facts:

-- The Royals have been behind in only five of 63 innings played.

-- The Royals lead all teams with a .342 batting average. That's 26 points higher than the second placed team. The fact the second place team is the Astros is nobody's concern.

-- They have posted double-digit hit totals in five consecutive games.

-- The Royals starters have a 3.14 ERA. The Royals relievers have a 3.14 ERA.

-- The Royals team ERA is... 3.14!

The lineup:
Alex Gordon - LF
Alcides Escobar - SS
Billy Butler - 1B
Mike Moustakas - 3B
Salvador Perez - C
Jeff Francoeur - RF
Xavier Nady - DH
Chris Getz - 2B
Jarrod Dyson - CF

Ervin Santana - SP

Others scheduled to appear:
Guillermo Moscoso
Aaron Crow
Greg Holland
John Lamb
Dan Wheeler
Donnie Joseph

Aches and Pains:

-- Elliot Johnson is taking batting practice swings. He's recovering from a bruised knee.

-- Everett Teaford will throw a side session today to test his sore shoulder.

-- Lorenzo Cain was swallowed by a sinkhole. (Kidding. He's scheduled to see some action today.)
