Hitter of the Game
Ryan Shealy earns today's hitter of the game award. Ryan hit an opposite field 3 run home run and he was also hit by a pitch, coming around to score on a fielder's choice by Chris Lubanski. Hopefully he continues to hit homeruns this year.
Pitcher of the Game
I could make the argument for any of the pitchers except for Hamulack to receive the award tonight, but I'll stick with Greinke. Zack pitched two perfect innings today, getting 3 groundball outs, a strike out, a pop out and a fly out to centerfield. Hopefully we see a lot more of this during the year.
The Royals had a great overall game today, including a lot of situational hitting. Then again, Miguel Olivo tried to steal home, so there's still plenty to work on. The Royals hitters struck out 8 times and only drew 3 walks (Butler, Ka'aihue, and J.R. House). Meanwhile, the pitchers struck out 5 and only walked 2. The Royals have had at least one homerun in their first 3 games this spring. We'll see how long that lasts.
Thanks for reading, expect a much better post tomorrow, right now I need to get to my medicine cabinet and then get to bed!
