Bannister will start tonight as he was recalled from Omaha yesterday and Doug Waechter was placed on the DL (Forearm Strain.. uh oh). Sure, a lot of things went the Indians way yesterday (6 double plays by the Tribe for instance) but the sooner Ponson is out of the Rotation the better.
This is why the Royals are halfway to having their ideal rotation.
Hitter of the Game
I guess I'll go with David DeJesus, who was 2-5 with a home run, 3 RBI and 2 runs scored. David's HR came in the 9th with 2 outs to make the game a 1 run game once again. The Royals never led after the 1st inning yesterday.
Pitcher of the Game
Robinson Tejada came in and struck out the side without allowing a hit. He did walk 2, but oh well. All of the pitching sucked yesterday and I feel like Tejada was the most dominant.
The Royals face off against the Indians at 6:05 again tomorrow. Bannister vs. Cliff Lee.
Thanks for reading.
