Yesterday, Kansas City was so good that it beat two teams at once. You know, when the Royals went to the World Series, we weren't exactly sure how good they were. Lots of luck. Lots of timely hitting. Some skill in there. Clearly, though, the Royals deserved to be there after steamrolling the Cactus League in a state that doesn't spring forward or fall back but rather treats time as a continuous thing.
Today, the Royals look to continue their steamrolling ways. They face the Indians in an afternoon clash.
Happy Hochevar Day: Escobar 6, Dyson 8, Infante DH, Perez 2, Sierra 9, Orlando 7, Fields 3, Colon 4, Jackson 5, Duffy 1.— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) March 12, 2015
Danny Duffy gets the start. Salvador Perez finally sees time at the catcher position after quite a bit of time off during the beginning of Spring Training. Infante with his bum elbow continues his DH position. I really don't expect any improvement from Infante this year. If his elbow still bothers him, the team clearly could not find the fix during last season because Infante was dealing with seemingly the same stuff during last Spring Training. Christian Colon gets another start; hopefully he fields the ball.
The Indians are throwing everything they have at us, including the villain from The Little Mermaid. This clash is going aquatic.
