First off, nice to have family come see the Royals' offense have a good day. Jeff Britton and Larry Mortemore both had nice performances, so it was great to have Ginger and MaryAnn see it in person. Vote in the comments below if you were a "Ginger" or "MaryAnn" guy back in the day. Sorry Ma, we're calling you "Ginger" from now on.
Biggest highlight of the Royals' day was David Lucas' bases-clearing double late in the game. He got great wood on that one. Back in the dugout his manager asked "you got such good wood on everything today, what's your secret?" To wit David replied "I dunno, I just woke up this way."
Another big friggin' deal was James Robertson finally got the monkey off his back with an RBI single. When James was running to first, the ground shook so hard the monkey couldn't hold on. Sadly, the monkey fell to his death. Services will be held on Friday at the Simian Sanctuary and Chapel.
Gerry Garcia pitched the first shutout inning of the game, starting for the Diamondbacks. Gerry had watched a movie about Dock Ellis this afternoon, so he decided to try Dock's approach to pitching. The acid kicked-in in the 3rd inning and he got in a groovy-zone stranding runners in scoring position for the goose egg.
The nicest defensive play of the game was Larry Moretemore's nice scoop on a low throw from the shortstop deep in the hole. Larry said "hey, they called me 'Tonto Dombrowski' in college, if you wanna know how to play deep in the hole, you ask me."
