- Royals out hit the D-Backs 11 to 5, out walked them 3 to 1, but get outscored 3 to 2. Royals were 1 for 9 with RISP and hit into 3 double plays.
- Melky is leading off. Why again? It would be nice to have someone with an OBP higher than 0.319.
- Francis and Crow pitched damn good. 4K, 1BB, 3 runs. The Royals aren't going to get many pitching performances like this throughout the season. They need to take advantage of them when they can.
- Royals seem to be aiming for the 2012 number one pick. They now have the 2nd worst record in the league and are 4 games ahead of Houston.
