After last night's four-run outburst, I believe anything is possible with George. Five runs? Six runs? He's a Hall of Famer guys.

George Brett faced Nolan Ryan more than any other pitcher except Bert Blyleven. Brett faced Nolan 115 times and hit .287/.374/.366 with 18 strikeouts and no rally-killing home runs. Nolan had more wins against the Royals than any other team in his career - 24. He posted a 2.73 ERA in 46 career starts against them including his first no-hitter.

But now...its OUR TIME.
