ON THE MOUND
King Felix was looking a little more like King Felix . . .
The Royals play small ball for sure – they managed to score THREE runs on NO extra base hits
6.2 innings ~ SIX hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
Congratulations to Felix on a MILESTOEN REACHED . . .
at least 200 strikeouts for FIVE straight seasons
} Ollie got in some good work ~ 1.1 scoreless innings with a couple of strikeouts
AT THE PLATE
Gettin’ ’em on came a bit easier today . . .
it was just that pesky gettin’ ’em over and in that was the issue 😦 . . . . ONE for ELEVEN, to be exact
~ Brad and Kyle had FIVE of the SEVEN total hits (including a triple and double, respectively)
~ Abraham had his first major league double
~ Mike was 0-3 with a walk and a couple of strikeouts in his return from the DL
~ seems they need a remedy for left-handed pitching (M’s batting .228 vs. lefties)
IN THE FIELD
Brad had a fielding error and Mike a throwing error (but, still great to have Mike back behind the plate)
