If there was ever a game primed and ready for a Royals victory, Tuesday is the one. Last night the Royals got yet another outstanding pitching performance from Zack Greinke and the Royals held on late to outlast the Indians 4-2.
Mike Jacobs led off the fourth with a homer and Joakim Soria picked up his third save of the season by stranding the tying run at second.
Fast forward to Tuesday and there is no reason why the Royals should lose this game. Kyle Davies, who was outstanding in his first outing of the season, is on the hill against Carl Pavano...yes, you heard that right.
Pavano, who used to be good before injuries ravaged his career, gave up nine runs in one inning of work last week and could be pitching for his job tonight. If the Royals are looking for a good excuse to break out the offense they probably just found it.
Clearly, the Royals have caught the Indians at the most opportune time. Their pitching is horrible. Let's just hope they don't blow it.
