Royals Unable to Solve Hill

Game Date: May 16, 2009  
Baltimore @ Kansas City
Orioles 3, Royals 2 / Box Score
WP: Hill (1-0), LP: Davies (2-2), SV: Sherrill (7)
KC Home Runs: None  
Royals Record: 19-18 / Record in May 7-8

Kyle Davies had a case of Hochevar-itis in the beginning of this one—he looked so hyped up that he couldn’t get the ball down. Pitch after pitched sailed high. He finally settled down and ended up going seven innings, giving up three earned runs, but for some reason the Royals struggled at the plate against Rich Hill even though his stuff didn’t look all that great. I would have liked to have seen Alberto Callaspo knock the ball down in the fifth inning when Markakis hit a grounder up the middle—at least that would have kept Izturis from scoring, but he wasn’t able to and it turned out to be the winning run. Tomorrow is another day.
