Luke Scott tied tonight’s game, 3-3, with a three-run homer off Kansas City’s Jeff Francis in the top of the fourth inning.
Scott has six homers in his last 14 games, and four homers and nine RBIs in his last six.
Yes, he can be streaky.
Scott has two hits in 17 at-bats against left-handers this season - both home runs.
Matt Wieters threw out another runner trying to steal and blocked the plate again while tagging out another runner. It’s become routine.
Update: A one-out error by Cesar Izturis opened the door for the Royals to take a 4-3 lead in the fifth. Melky Cabrera followed with an RBI double to hang an unearned run on Brad Bergesen.
Izturis is starting at second base after Brian Roberts had a root canal this morning. Roberts told reporters that he’ll probably return to the lineup tomorrow night.
Vladimir Guerrero drew his first walk in 115 plate appearances. Stop the game and retrieve the ball.
