Take A Bow

Another one of those games where the Royals pretty much hand us a win and all we have to do is take it from them.

However, in the midst of a 10-3 drubbing, Jim Thome continued to amaze:

Once again, a mighty hack from Big Thome produced a deep bomb over the right field bleachers and bouncing around out on the pavilion.  This one (#586) tied him with Frank Robinson on the all-time list.

As long as his back holds out down the stretch and through the (hopefully!) playoffs, he could be just the bat we have been looking for against the likes of the Yankees or Rays (no more Brian Buscher coming off the bench in key playoff spots).

Notes:

-Ben Revere makes his major league debut.  Exciting player who could help in the field and on the bases down the stretch.

-Very intriguing to see Pat Neshek back on the mound.  He struggled tonight, but if he can get right he could be a deadly weapon in the pennant race.

Preview (82-57, 1st, 4.5 GA CWS): Zack Grienke (8-11, 3.87) vs. Brian Duensing (7-2, 2.09)
