Hot Bats on a Cold Night

The Royals' bats came alive on a cold and damp night against the Toronto Blue Jays in a 7-1 win at The K. The offense was led by Jose Guillen going 3-4 and hitting 2 home runs driving in 3 runs. Miguel Olivio hit a 3 run home run. Alberto Callaspo extended his hitting streak to 10 games going 2-4 and raised his average to .386. Willie Bloomquist got 2 walks and a triple.

Brian Bannister pitched great holding the leagues best hitting team to 1 run on 1 hit in 7 innings of work giving way to Jamey Wright who pitched a scoreless 8th. Kyle Farnsworth finished the game giving up 1 hit in the ninth.

The Royals need to do well against the Jays this week so they can finish the month of April above .500 and try to finish out the month in 1st in the AL Central standings.
