Storm Chasers Opening Day (8-4 win over ABQ)


Happy Opening Day from Werner Park!

Some notes:
-Will Smith, making his first Triple-A start since joining the Royals organization, was shaky. He threw a ton of pitches, needing 26 pitches just to get out of the first inning – even though the first out came on the first pitch. Despite walking six batters, he only gave up two runs (one unearned) in his 3-inning start.

-The game was a circus, with as many as four blown calls (depending on whom you ask. I, of course, avoid making such accusations.) on the basepaths. The Chasers blew things open in the 7th with a two-out rally that began with a missed tag in a rundown between 2nd and 3rd base.

-Tonight was the first time I really got to use my new camera lens. Pictures will be online soon, unless I fall asleep at my desk before I get done.
[UPDATE]: Photos! Here!

-David Lough got hit in the foot with a pitch in the 7th. Manager Mike Jirschele said Lough’s big toe was hurting from it, but he’d probably be fine tomorrow.

-The Chasers offense had a productive night – everyone in the starting lineup had at least one hit. Only Irving Falu, who came on as a pinch-hitter, did not reach base.

-Today’s Family Resource Center Moment:

A small child was coloring an activity page while waiting for her mother to pick up items from the clothing exchange. The child told a staff member that she had to hurry to finish the page because she had no crayons at home. A box of crayons went home with the beaming child.
