Royals Pound Out 15 Hits

Game Date: March 7, 2007
Royals 10, White Sox 5 / Box Score
Royals Spring Training Record: 4-3

Dewon Brazelton, who has downright scarey bad numbers at the major league level (8-25, 6.38 ERA, 1.68 WHIP), gave up one run on four hits in his start for the Royals yesterday against the White Sox. Luke Hochevar followed him with two scoreless innings. Tyler Lumsden did the same. Bell and McClure must have been most pleased by the fact that Royals pitchers only gave up one base on balls.

At the plate, the Royals pounded White Sox pitching for 15 hits. Gordon was 1-for-3 with an RBI. Blanco was 2-for-2 with 2 RBI. Huber was 1-for-2 with 2 RBI. And eleven other players had one hit.

Gil Meche started in the “B” game against the Rangers. He threw 64 pitches—giving up one run on four hits. He didn’t walk anybody and he struck out three. He is still struggling with his mechanics though. He’s landing on his heal rather than the ball of his foot. McClure continues to work with him to make the fix.

Scott Elarton threw 51 pitches in a bullpen session yesterday. Plans are to keep him in Arizona for extended spring training because of the cold weather in Omaha and Wichita.

This afternoon, Odalis Perez will start against the Mariners.
