The Zack Attack

I am feeling very under the weather, so it'll be an extremely short post tonight.

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!
