3-3: Slow Rollers and High Heat

The Royals lost the series but may have turned a corner by finally scoring some runs on Sunday in a win over the Yankees. Fielding prowess was not on display as both teams botched routine plays to give up leads.

It's interesting to me that the scoring "outburst" occurred with Butler, Gordon and Guillen out of the lineup. Though, Butler did draw a key walk in a pinch-hitting appearance.

It was nice to see John Buck get some good wood on the ball and show a little fire. It's early in the season and while the team doesn't need to dominate, it would be nice to avoid a long losing streak.

.500 after the White Sox and Yankees? I'll take it. Bring on the Tribe.
