Line Score of the Day and Opening Day at the K this Friday.

So after listening to most of the game on radio, I turned on the TV to witness the end of the Royals-A's game today.  The best line score of the year belongs to Jonathan Broxton, the new Royals closer.

Broxton (BS, 1) (L, 0-1) 0.2 IP, 0 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 HBP

After opening the bottom of the 12th with a strikeout, Broxton saw a error by SS Alcides Escobar put a runner at 1st.  He then followed with a walk, another walk, a groundout to tie the game, a hit batter, and then another hit batter to lose the game.  Instead of ending the season opening road trip at 4-2, we now head home at 3-3.  Here is hoping the results against the Indians on Friday is a little better.

Opening Day at the K!  Home of the 2012 All Star Game.  I'll be there.

2011 Opening Day - Royals vs. Angels


  1. Have fun and cheer my boy Hoch on to the win!

  2. This is exactly the reason why I'm so glad Broxton isn't part of the Dodgers anymore. "Impending doom" shouldn't be part of a closer's repertoire.
