The Royals need this. The first 6 series of the season were against top AL offenses in Detroit (twice), Boston, Toronto and Minnesota (twice). The Mariners are currently ranked 11th in the AL in batting average and RBIs, 10th in runs scored, On-Base-Percentage and doubles and dead last in homeruns with a staggering nine long balls.
A pleasant sight after facing the fearsome lineups of the class of the AL's batting orders.
Its a nice change of pace from Mauer-Morneau-Cuddyer to Guttierez-Lopez-Old Balls Griffey.
