I would say we can throw out the records when the Royals and the Reds match up, but I like the Royals record, so it would be a shame to cast it aside.
The good news from yesterday was Eric Hosmer's 3-3 performance with a pair of doubles and a home run. The even better news was all three hits were to the opposite field.
Alex Gordon - LF
Alcides Escobar - SS
Eric Hosmer - 1B
Mike Moustakas - 3B
Jeff Francoeur - RF
Lorenzo Cain - CF
Max Ramirez - DH
George Kottaras - C
Chris Getz - 2B
Wade Davis - SP
Other pitchers scheduled to appear:
With everyone gone for the WBC, expect the battle for backup catcher to kick into high gear. Kottaras gets the start today and I imagine Hayes will start the next game. Both are looking good in the early going at the plate.
The Royals are off tomorrow. Which is a shame. Because when you're tearing through the opposition, you don't want - or need - a day of rest.
