Game Wrap Spring Training 2013: Royals 13 Giants 2

If you are keeping score, this one was over almost before it got started as Yusmeiro Petit got rocked for 6 runs in the top of the first inning and the route was on.  Key Lines:

Gregor Blanco- 1 for 3, 3B.  BA= .208.  Blanco tripled in the 6'th inning and scored on Noonan's triple.

Nick Noonan- 1 for 2, 3B.  BA= .095.  Noonan tripled to drive in Gregor Blanco from 3B in the 6'th.

Brandon Belt- 1 for 2, HR(4), BB.  BA= .467.  Gotta be excited about what we're seeing from Belt this spring.

Ricky Oropesa- 1 for 1.  BA= .200.  Ricky survives the first cutdown and gets a hit.  I think his parents were in attendance.

Yusmeiro Petit- 1.2 IP, 9 H, 8 R, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 10.80.  Just when you think Petit is turning it around, he puts up a stinker like this.  Sigh!

Scott Proctor- 1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 0 K's.  ERA= 6.00.  If Chad Gaudin didn't have the inside track for the last bullpen spot, he does now.

Dan Runzler- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 1.80.  Runzler has one last option left.  He looks like he could help the MLB team if the needed him.


  1. On the bright side, Petit's outing today might bring him closer to passing through waivers and keeping him in the organization for rotation depth.

    1. i agree

      giants need depth in sp and petit chances of making the team in long rp were slim to none. he will easily pass through waivers and i dont see him opting out to go fa to try and sign on elsewhere

      top of the rotation in fresno should be boof, petit and proctor ...thats a good thing

      yay for rickey
