Game 124: Kansas City @ New York

Game Date: August 17, 2008
Yankees 15, Royals 6 / Box Score
WP: Mussina (16-7), LP: Bannister (7-12)
Royal Home Runs: Gload (3)
Royals Record: 55-69

It was the Jimmy Gobble experience all over again. Trey Hillman left Brian Bannister in the game while the evil Yankees pounded him for ten earned runs in one inning. Hillman's choices were limited though since the bullpen was so tired. You just hate to see a guy get mauled like that. How much longer will Hillman keep Banny in the rotation?

The Royals got off to a great start, scoring three runs in the top of the first, but the evil Yankees answered with six runs in the bottom of the first. And they scored four more in the second. Joe Girardi certainly didn't call off the dogs. The Yankees scored four more runs in the eighth.

I couldn't wait for the game to get over. It's bad enough seeing the Yankees win, but seeing them annihilate the Royals is just too much to bear.

The Royals are off today. They will open a new series in Cleveland tomorrow night. Luke Hochevar (6-11, 5.44) will go up against Anthony Reyes (3-2, 3.67). Hochevar is 1-1 in his career against the Indians with a 4.00 ERA in 9.0 IP. Reyes is 1-0 against the Royals with a 0.00 ERA in 5.2 IP.
