Brawlball

Forget the brawl in today's game with the Tigers. What's more important is that the Royals' four pitchers shut out the Tigers on 6 hits in a 5-0 win as the Royals became the last MLB team to get a shutout this season. Only took 91 games. The brawl caused several players, including SP Runelvys Hernandez, who was in the midst of a 2-hitter in the 6th, to get ejected after Runelvys conked Carlos Guillen on the helmet with a pitch. He had hit two batters in the first and Mike Maroth had in turn hit a Royals player to lead to a warning for both teams. No injuries were noted coming out of the fight. Anyway, when they actually played, the Royals did well as Sweeney and Teahen hit homers, Emil Brown was 3-3 before getting ejected after the fight, and DeJesus and Long had 2-hit games. Only Graffanino, Buck and Berroa had 0-fers. Runelvys was well on his way to his best start of the year before the ejection. Leo Nunez had 2 hitless innings and Affeldt and MacDougal finished it. For once the offense and pitching were both somewhat on today.

So its Cleveland for 4 more starting Monday as D.J. Carrasco takes the mound against Cliff Lee. Let's hope D.J's "shoulder tightness" was a momentary thing and he keeps pitching like he has.
