Game Date: March 15, 2008
Brewers 8, Royals 3 / Box Score
Royals Spring Training Record: 9-8
Gil Meche's performance yesterday must have convinced Trey Hillman that Meche is indeed the Royals ace and Hillman named Meche the Opening Day starter. Was there ever really a doubt? The idea that the Royals were going to pay a guy $55 million to be the number two guy seems a bit absurd. But that's over now.
Hideo Nomo, on the other hand, didn't help his cause when he gave up five earned runs in three innings. His ERA is 5.73 and he better pick it up if he hopes to make it past the next round of cuts.
The Royals didn't do much at the plate, managing to get just six hits. Mike Aviles had two of them and so did Ryan Shealy.
Zack Greinke will go against the Victor Santos of the Giants this afternoon in Surprise.
