Royals Continue to Hit

Game Date: March 8, 2007
Royals 11, Mariners 3 / Box Score
Royals Spring Training Record: 5-3

The Royals continued their offensive explosion today with an 11-3 win against the Mariners. Alex Gordon was 2-for-2 with a triple and 4 RBI. Ryan Shealy was 2-for-2. And Jason LaRue hit his third home run of the spring. Angel Berroa hit his first and so did Billy Butler.

Odalis Perez got off to a shaky start. He gave up two runs in the first inning, but then he settled down and only gave up two more hits to the next twelve hitters. Todd Wellemeyer, who is a long shot for the rotation, only allowed one hit in three innings of scoreless work. Octavio Dotel threw another scoreless inning without allowing anybody to reach base. And David Riske pitched a scoreless inning—in spite of giving up two hits.

Tomorrow the Royals will play the Brewers at 2:05 PM, and then play the Angels at 8:05 PM.
