Finally, a break-out day for the bats. The Royals really put things together, with help from the 4 errors committed by the Detroit Tigers, getting 10 runs on 15 hits.
Neither pitcher really had great stuff today, but Hochevar (1-0) had better run support, and only 1 error behind him. The failing of the Tigers defense attributed a fair amount to the loss for Scherzer (0-1) today, and he didn't help himself much either. A throwing error in the top of the 5th inning allowed David DeJesus to score to make it a 5-3 Royals lead.
Jose Guillen, and Carlos Guillen oddly enough, homered today for his third in the last two games. Maybe playing DH is helping him out more than he would like to admit. The Royals bullpen also had a decent day, if you ignore the trouble Kyle Farnsworth got himself into and then out of in the 9th inning. The past couple of games the bullpen has done a fair to decent job, far better what they were showing the first 5 games of the season, I only hope it continues. John Parrish had two hitless and scoreless innings behind Hochevar, and is starting to get folks around here talking about him.
Royals win 10-5 in Detroit, here is the scorecard, enjoy.
