Hitter of the Game
Coco Crisp scored the only run, so I'll give him the award, but make no mistake, the offense was awful all around today. Coco was 1-3 with 1 run, 0 rbi, 0 k and a walk.
Pitcher of the Game
Ron Mahay gets it today. He came in and struck out the side on 16 pitches. Enough said. He gave up no hits and walked no one.
The Royals will finish up the Tigers series tomorrow as Sidney Ponson takes on Armando Gallaraga. I expect another massacre. Ugh.
Brayan Pena was DFAd today and all I have to say is why.. Tony Pena Jr. should have not even made this team, let alone still be hanging on. By all accounts Brayan is a very useful player who is well.. a lot better than TPJ. Oh well. DFA Fail.
