I guess the Royals really wanted to get revenge on former K.C. farmhand Billy Buckner.
The Royals led 21-0 in the fifth inning, en route to a 24-9 victory over the Diamondbacks Friday.
Brian Anderson, who weirdly enough we had just talked about the night before as a forgotten man, hit for the cycle in the first four innings.

Being a Royal-explosion, it was highly singles based. In getting out to a 21-0 lead, the Royals banged out 17 singles. St. Willie had three of them himself. Kila and Aviles also had huge days. Many guys did.
Oh, and Farnsworth and Herges gave up nine runs.
