Last night

With last night's nail biting 5-4 win the Royals are just a game back of the Tribe with two games left to play in the series. Bruce Chen was damn good for the third straight game and KC has now won 7 of his last 9 starts, dating back to last year of course. Chen is 6-0 with a 2.56 ERA in that stretch and I'll be honest with you, I don't know what to make of it.

 I just hope he keeps it up.

Well Yost took my advice and dropped Kila to seventh in the order and I'd like to say it worked out, but it didn't. He went 0/3 with 2 strikeouts and a sacrifice bunt Yost would later blame on the batboy. It was another disappointing performance but I still have faith he'll come around.

Hochevar takes the mound tonight, he's coming off consecutive quality starts and the team hasn't lost one of his starts since opening day. Should be another good one at the K.
