    Mauersie continues on his quest to strikeout more this season than all of his previous seasons combined.

    Yeah but how many of those 51 strikeouts can be directly attributed to Ashbury?

    It looked like the KC rightfielder got caught staring at some female in the crowd when Willingham hit that.

    I think the rightfielder was staring at some girl in the stands or something. Willy got a double on a line drive to the right fielder, and Escobar scored from first. So if Morneau hits it out he should get 6 bases.

    Did Chief and You notice the same girl or something?

    Do we attribute the run to me as well, then?

    3-2 count. Technically, not a H&R.

    I'm watching the KC feed and they just showed a slow replay of that (non-technical) hit and run. The rightfielder absolutely was frozen until Escobar had rounded second base and the ball had bounced well into the outfield. Then he got the ball and threw a popup to the pitcher. If he had thrown the ball well into second I think they would have had the Hammer out.

    I can't keep up tonight. Got word my daughter is having knee surgery this Friday, so I may be scarce for a week or more.

    If he had thrown the ball to second, Hammer wouldn't have continued on to second.

    As it was, Hosmer cut the ball and missed a chance at Hammer going to second. Had he cut and immediately went to second they'd have had Hammer. Ugly play by the KC defense all the way around.

    I'm sorry... I don't get this joke.

    Just kidding... What did she do to her knee?
