Greinke Stops the Losing Streak

Game Date: May 15, 2009  
Baltimore @ Kansas City
Royals 8, Orioles 1 / Box Score
WP: Greinke (7-1), LP: Eaton (2-4)
KC Home Runs: Jacobs (8), Olivo (3) 
Royals Record: 19-17 / Record in May 7-7

Another Zack Greinke start, another Zack Greinke win. He didn’t have his best stuff, but good enough to keep the Orioles from scoring more than once. The offense finally came to life. Mike Jacobs, Jose Guillen, Miguel Olivo, and Alberto Callaspo had big nights at the plate. The only thing that really bugged me about this game is the fact that Trey Hillman used Juan Cruz in the eighth inning when the Royals were up 8-1. Isn’t that why the Royals are paying Kyle Farnsworth nearly $5 million this season—to eat a couple of innings during mop up duty?
