Shealy gets the start, homers in second at-bat

Ryan Shealy went 1-for-4 in his first game back in the majors in almost a year, but that one hit was an opposite field homer and two of his other three outs were hit very hard. He narrowly missed an opposite field shot in the first inning also. He got a little too much lift on it and ended up flying out to the warning track in front of the Royals bullpen.
Kila Ka'aihue didn't get into the game, but he may see action in Wednesday's game. In fact, he may get the start in that one. Shealy, it should be noted, also made several good plays around the bag at first tonight as well. One of those plays was a nifty 3-6 double play he started himself.
Hopefully this trend will continue. The lineup could use the pop.
