When this all started, we were 2-5, we now leave for Chicago at 9-7.
Felix pitched his 17th straight “quality start”, a club record. I missed most of the game, but was able to catch the eventful fourth. Tui’s hustle was able to keep a rally alive and help us produce our only runs for the game. Even Jack Wilson was able to show us he can hit when he wants to.
Glad to see Felix climb into the W column as Zach Grienke has a nice goose egg working for him. As far as the battle of last years Cy Young finalists, Zach is not living up to his end of the bargain. I had concerns of this hangover, but still selected him in my fantasy draft. Playing for the Royals is a challenging spot to be in, probably why he led the AL in complete games last season. Zach is not on his game at this point in the season. I hope that last year was not a fluke. Zach pitched on Wednesday and could take the mound on Monday which may be a Felix/Zach matchup for the first game of that series. Zach’s last start was good, but the pen ended up blowing the W for him.
Keep up the good work!
