Greinke Wins Fifth Game; Butler Goes Deep

Game Date: April 29 2009
Blue Jays @ Kansas City
Royals 11, Blue Jays 3 / Box Score
WP: Greinke (5-0), LP: Tallet (1-1)
KC Home Runs: Butler 2 (2), Teahen (3)
Royals Record: 11-10 / Record in April: 11-10

As I was chatting with fellow Royals fans on Twitter during the game, Emily (@esmithp77) said, “Greinke's night has quickly become Butler's night.” She was right. Greinke was good. Really good. But Billy Butler took advantage of a rather ineffective effort by Blue Jays’ starting pitcher Brian Tallet. Butler went 4-for-5 with two home runs and four RBI. Mark Teahen also went deep. And a host of other Royals had a nice night at the plate as well, including Willie Bloomquist, Coco Crisp, Mike Jacobs, Alberto Callaspo, and Mike Aviles.
