Is this what the Royals needed? I’d say YES! Great start from P-Dog tonight. Six scoreless, six strikeouts and one win. Glad to have him back. Huge improvement over Mendoza.
Gordon raised his batting average .28 points tonight with a 4 for 5 performance. Butler drove in runs, bullpen was solid. Great win. Guaranteed a split with the Yanks and a chance for a win tomorrow to take the series.
Hochevar vs. Phelps tomorrow has the makings of a 15-12 type Royals win so get your tickets and go enjoy a day at the ballpark tomorrow.
