The embattled Royals won easily on Saturday night for a change. Mostly, it was the top of Ned Yost's lineup doing the damage:

  • Chris Getz was 2-4 with a walk.
  • Melky Cabrera was 2-4 with a walk.
  • Alex Gordon was 2-4 with a three run homer.
  • Billy Butler was 3-5.

Luke Hochevar was actually pretty bad tonight, but it came on a night in which it didn't matter. Still, he was bad enough to miss out on a chance to get a cheap win.
