ABOUT LAST NIGHT…
Royals 5, Blue Jays 0
James Shields was excellent in his seven shutout innings of work yesterday afternoon, striking out nine, with three hits and only one walk. I’d say he was on top of his game, eh? Eric Hosmer had three RBI, and Emilio Bonifacio he two hits, a double, and two runs scored.
Kansas City returns home to take on the Seattle Mariners for four games before starting a 12-game stretch of playing the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians six times each.
First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL is back and wow is there a lot to talk about.
Kansas State lost of two-time defending national FCS champion North Dakota State on Friday night. After KSU took a 21-7 midway through the third quarter it seemed they were just one play away from nailing down the win, they just never got it. It was as if Bill Snyder got Bill Snyder’d by the Bison.
Henry Josey is back for the Missouri Tigers and he looked about as good as a player can look after missing nearly two years due to a terrible knee injury. Josey’s night was capped off by a 68-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that was created purely on speed. A fully healthy Josey would be a big lift for Mizzou.
