Royals on the Farm news flash -- Wichita finishes it

The Wranglers took the best-of-5 series as they rolled to a 7-0 lead but then had to hold on for the 7-6 win. Luke Hochevar got the big win with 2 ER allowed over 5 1/3 IP on only 2 hits and a walk with 7 Ks. He's the real deal. Alex Gordon broke out of his postseason funk with a 2 HR game and Billy Butler crushed one as well. It's on to the Texas League Championship Series vs. the Corpus Christi Hooks in a best-of-5 set. Wichita was 6-8 vs. the Hooks this season. I think Billy Buckner is set to start game 1, but it's not until Monday so that might change. Games 1 and 2 are slated for Wichita.

As of 10:45, High Desert is down, 7-3, in the 4th in the decisive game 3 with Lake Elsinore.

Idaho Falls is up on Orem, 6-2, in the 9th in game 1 of their best-of-3.

hey thanks, i check your site all the time and i never say anything...


i listened to the game tonight on internet radio here in lawrence and it all sounded great except for the wichita bullpen, which fortunately it doesn't seem like we will have to tap into much.


anyways, throughout the year it has been invaluable to read your boxscores and analyses every day



thanks,
