ST Game #6

Game Date: March 4, 2008
Royals 11, Rockies 5 / Box Score
Royals Spring Training Record: 3-3

How about Joey Gathright? I don't know what we're going to do with him if he makes the club, but he's having quite a spring. Yesterday he was 1-for-3 with an RBI, a BB, and 2 SB. He's already stolen six bases in just six games. I love the fact that he's learning the art of drawing walks and just getting on base because it sets the table for him to score. David DeJesus, the Royals' other centerfielder, was 1-for-2 and saw his average drop to .714.

It's nice to see some of the young guys having good games at the plate as well. Matt Tupman was 1-for-1 with a walk and two runs scored. Mitch Maier was 1-for-3. Alberto Callaspo was 1-for-3 with 2 RBI, including a two-run home run. And Mike Aviles was 2-for-2 with 2 RBI.

On the hill, Brett Tomko was hit pretty hard, giving up three earned runs (on two home runs) in four innings of work. Carlos Rosa pitched a scoreless inning, but he walked two guys in the process. As many good things as I've heard about him, I'd like to see him settle down and turn in some solid performances. Ryan Braun gave up an earned run in one inning in his spring debut.

Gil Meche will go up against Barry Zito this afternoon in Scottsdale. Hideo Nomo is scheduled to pitch three innings during this game as well.
