The right hander allowed two hits and struck out three in his longest outing of the spring after he allowed nine hits and walked three in his previous two appearances.
spring training coming together, Hammel said. long as you don get frustrated and beat yourself up the first couple weeks of spring and expect results because you are still somewhat getting into shape, you be OK. Things felt like it clicked today. starter cheap Danny Duffy jersey was nearly as good, other than a tough third inning in which he hit a batter and walked two, including cheap Starlin Castro jersey to force in the first run of the game.
was pretty happy with everything, he said. are things you have to get ready for in the season. It might be a pitch to certain kind of hitter or whatever it maybe. I trying to control the front and back of the plate this year. was hit by a pitch and singled twice, including a RBI shot to right center off Royals jerseys reliever cheap Wade Davis jersey in the fifth.
cheap Lorenzo Cain jersey two doubles, including one that drove in a run in the sixth, and cheap Omar Infante jersey had two singles in three at bats for the Royals jerseys, while Lane Adams came off the bench to hit his first home run of the spring.
is really swinging the bat well, Royals jerseys manager Ned Yost said. on everything right now. TIME
Royals jerseys: Duffy created a jam in the third inning with wildness after getting two quick outs. He walked cheap Dexter Fowler jersey, gave up a single to cheap Chris Denorfia jersey, hit cheap Anthony Rizzo jersey with a pitch to load the bases and forced in a run when he walked Castro.
did a great job of limiting the damage after the bases loaded giving up one, Yost said.
Cubs jerseys: Hammel gave up one hit in each of the first two innings, but followed it up by facing the minimum in the third and fourth.
Royals jerseys: Infante was the designated hitter again. He has yet to play in the field during the Cactus League because of a sore right elbow.
extending it and he progressing, said Ned Yost, who hopes Infante plays at least 10 games in the field. just have to keep checking on how he doing and when he be ready. Third base prospect cheap Kris Bryant jersey tested his right shoulder throwing from 90 feet and came through feeling good.
definitely felt better than the last couple of days, he said. be out there pretty soon. We made some really good progress with it. It a normal thing. If this was the season I definitely be playing through it. BACK INTO IT
Royals jerseys left fielder cheap Alex Gordon jersey, who had right wrist surgery in the offseason, played in minor intrasquad game and went 3 for 6 with a double and home run.
Maddon said he will settle on a regular season lineup close to the final 10 games, but Tuesday order against the Royals jerseys had a regular season look to it with no one with a number in the 60s or higher.
He said one position he is really interested in settling is the No. 2 spot in the lineup.
two hole is like a mystery, he said. the end of the day, it about feeding the RBI guys, who has the knack to drive in points, Maddon said. would think on the surface guys like (Anthony) Rizzo, (Jorge) Soler and (Kris) Bryant would be classical RBI guys. NEXT
