Gordon Gets First Hit of Spring

We got to see something new and something old in the 5-0 loss against the Rangers yesterday. The Royals new third baseman, Alex Gordon, got his first hit of spring training. That's a plus. On the other hand, Angel Berroa got picked off first base. Feels like mid-August in that regard, doesn't it?

Luke Hudson started the game. Even though he struggled with his control early on, he settled down to give up two hits, one base on balls, and one earned run in three innings. Not a bad way to start the spring for Hudson. Zack Greinke followed him and didn't look nearly as good. He gave up three earned runs on four hits in two innings. We got to see Octavio Dotel is his first appearance of the spring. He pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a hit and striking out one.

Jorge De La Rosa gets the start this afternoon at 2:00 PM against Jake Peavy of the Padres.
