Game 2 vs. Minny
Zack Greinke returns to the hill tonight, looking to return the starters to form and extend his career high win total to 10…Mike Aviles grabbed his fourth four-hit games in his short career last night and raised his average to .341, which leads all MLB rookies…Aviles is also a scoring machine (the picture at right is him beating a play at home last weekend versus the White Sox). He’s plated 12 runs in his last 11 games…David DeJesus returned to the lineup last night and knocked in the Royals’ run. He tied his RBI total from 2005 and 2006 and needs two more to reach his 2007 total of 58…DeJesus’ RBI also upped is Major League leading RISP average to .437.
