Our new friends over at Rant Sports have Connor Nielen covering the Royals for their network site, Royal Treatment. Connor provides series previews and I-70 has reached an agreement to bring his top quality work to our readers in exchange for introducing our readers to his excellent site. So give his site a read and check out his thoughts on the Seattle Series.
The Royals sure came to play on Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota – a 4th-inning offensive onslaught saw 6-consecutive hits to begin the frame (Kansas City would score 6 runs on 8 hits in the inning). K.C. doubled up on the Twins to a final tune of 10-5 and now return home to Kauffman Stadium for a 4-game series with the Seattle Mariners:
Thurs. Apr. 14. 7:10 pm CT – Doug Fister (0-2, 2.31) v. Bruce Chen (1-0, 4.09)
Fri. Apr. 15. 7:10 pm CT – Erik Bedard (0-2, 9.00) v. Luke Hochevar (1-1, 5.30)
Sat. Apr. 16. 12:10 pm CT – Felix Hernandez (1-1, 4.50) v. Sean O’Sullivan (0-1, 11.25)
Sun. Apr. 17. 1:10 pm CT – Michael Pineda (1-1, 2.70) v. Jeff Francis (0-0, 2.61)
