Hochevar, Solid in Omaha Start

Luke Hochevar got the start for the Omaha Royals last night. He wasn’t as dominant as he was earlier this season in Omaha, but he was good. He gave up two earned runs on eight hits and one walk in six innings. His ERA rose from 0.90 to 1.17. Unfortunately, he took his first loss of the season because the bats were silent for the Royals until the last couple of innings.

The Omaha Royals reached a milestone last night. 6,090 people were in attendance and that put them over the 11-million fan mark in their 41-year history. The organization is planning all sorts of giveaways during their 11 scheduled games in June. If you live in the area and haven’t been out to a game for a while, you have some added incentive now.

Here are a few photos of Hochevar in action last night (and one of Casey in the press box):

Poor Luke. He really didn't pitch badly, but I think his defense cost him a few soft runs, and as you said - the bats didn't help him at all!

Also, I LOOOVE that first photo. The crisp shadows across the mound are really cool!!

The Royals could sure use a steadying force in their rotation right now besides Greinke and Banny. Hopefully Luke is the guy to make it happen.

Thanks for your comment about the photo. It was just dumb luck to catch the shadows that way. :)
