Game 107- Royals (38-68) at Red Sox (60-45)

38-68 sure is an ugly looking record, is it not? After blowing a 4-0 lead last night, our beloved Royals look to rebound against the Red Sox tonight at hallowed, holy and sacrosanct Fenway Park.

For KC, its another episode of the Kyle Snyder Show starring Kyle Snyder. Snyder's 0-2 with a sparkling 8.59 ERA. Obviously, facing a high powered Boston offense, at Fenway, should be no problem, and I fully expect the Royals to only need 2, maybe 3 runs tonight in order to secure victory. The Red Sox counter with Wade Miller (3-4, 4.57 ERA) who continues to be somewhat difficult to figure out, after years of injury and inconsistency. Still, he's probably got better "stuff" than anyone who's appeared in a Royals uniform since 1992...

Miller has made two starts against the Royals in his career, posting a 1-1 record with a 4.97 ERA. Hmm... sounds pretty mediocre to me.

Last night, as if on cue, Matt Stairs returned to form after a terrible July, pacing the Royals to an early 4-0 lead. Of course, it was a fait accompli that the lead wouldn't last, but it was nice to see a friendly scoreboard for awhile, and nice to make the Boston faithful sweat.

All in all, a ho-hum game. Not too many walks from the Royal bats, and few Ks from the Royals staff. Predictably, the greater team prevailed. More annoyingly, the supremely annoying Curt Schilling got to play the hero again with another save. Sigh. Count me as an A-rod supporter in the false war between Schill and Everyone else...
