Will Smith effectively handled the Angles. He limted them to 1 run on 2 hits (all in the 1st inning) After those runs, he scattered 4 walks over next 6 innings.

Highlights:

  • Cain was able to blast his 3rd HR of the season.
  • The Royals were running wild with 3 SBs
  • The Royals could have scored more runs. They were 2 for 10 with RISP.
  • Broxton was himself by allowing as many hits in the 9th as Smith and Holland did over the entire rest of the game.
  • Smith and Holland were helped out by the Royals turning 3 DPs
  • Hacker of the game: Getz saw 10 pitches over 4 PAs
