Royals/Angels (Game #02/#03)

What a difference a couple of days makes!
The Royals offense came alive to take two out of three from the Angels after dropping the opener.
We knew the Royals offense would score runs this season. In games two and three the Royals added nice outings by starting pitchers Luke Hochevar and Jonathan Sanchez. The bullpen pitched decently and the Royals bats pulled away from the much-hyped Halos with King Albert Pujols.

Nice to Eric Hosmer’s second homer and Billy Butler’s first during the series. Leadoff hitter Alex Gordon is struggling, starting off the season 0-for-13. Manager Ned Yost said he may give Gordon the night off in the series opeer in Oakland. Mike Moustakas and Lorenzo Cain have also started slowly, at 1-for-11 each.

While Sanchez had a good outing on Sunday, it wasn’t without blemishes.
Sanchez threw two wild pitches and had an errant throw on a pickoff attempt.
