ABOUT LAST NIGHT…
Baseball is so stinking close. The Royals appeared on Fox Sports Kansas City for the first time last night against Zack Greinke and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Wade Davis gave up just one earned in five innings and KC’s offense produced eight runs on 15 hits in their 8-2 win over the Dodgers. If the Royals aren’t careful I’m going to have expectations of them this year.
