I tuned in to this game in the fourth inning—just in time to see the Royals go up 8-0. Then, I sat back and watched them cruise to an easy win. Looking at Ponson’s numbers, he had a good outing. Probably just in the nick of time for his sake. Mark Teahen was 3-for-5 with a home run and 3 RBI. Billy Butler and Willie Bloomquist had nice nights as well. This was the fifth straight win for the Royals and with the Detroit vs. Chicago postponement, it gives the Royals a full 2.0 game lead in the AL Central.
