Teahen Leads the Way

Game Date: March 26, 2007
Royals 5, Padres 2 / Box Score
Royals Spring Training Record: 10-14

Brandon Duckworth got knocked around a little in the game yesterday. He gave up two runs on seven hits and 2 walks in 3.1 innings. But the combination of Jimmy Gobble, Ryan Braun, Todd Wellemeyer, and Jason Shiell closed the door on the Padres and didn’t allow them to score again. Both Gobble and Braun continue to shine as we get closer to opening day. Gobble lowered his ERA to 2.53 and Braun lowered his to 1.04.

David DeJesus played for the first time since March 14 (he was out with a virus) and he was 1-for-3. Teahen, who moved back to right field, had a huge game, going 2-for-5 with a home run and 3 RBI. He even stole a base.

Brian Bannister worked five innings in a minor league game and he gave up one earned run while striking out seven. He’s working on an adjustment in his delivery and he’s still in the running for a spot at the bottom of the rotation.

In other news, the Royals sent Justin Huber and Andres Blanco to Omaha. They still have 39 guys in camp, so they have to make 14 cuts before the season opener in six days.

And how about this piece of news…the Royals are planning to give Angel Berroa time at second and third base in Omaha. Maybe they want to try add to his plummeting value for teams who desperately need infield help.
