MOOSE ON THE PROWL--A mid-camp signing, Mike Moustakas has appeared to find his stroke in the last three games, going 7-for-13 (.538) with a pair of home runs and six RBI, upping his early season average from.174 entering Sunday in Cleveland to a lofty.306 heading into today...he has homered in the last two games, the 13th time he has gone deep in consecutive contests in his career and for the first time he has driven in at least three runs in back-to-back contests. GORDO SHELVED WITH HIP--Prior to last night s game, Kansas City placed outfielder Alex Gordon on the 10-day disabled list (left hip labral tear), retroactive to April 9...to take his place on the Major League roster, the Royals recalled outfielder Abraham Almonte from Omaha (AAA)...the 28-year old was a waiver claim from Cleveland on April 2. THE BRUISE BROTHERS--In less than a 24-hour span, the Royals saw their single-game individual hit by pitch record tied as Eric Skoglund plunked three Mariners a night after Jakob Junis nabbed three on Monday...Junis actually tied his own portion of the club record with his three plunkings, as he accomplished a similar feat during his rookie season last June 17...this does mark the first time out of 14 occurrences in team history that it has happened in consecutive games. WE HAVE A HEAT WAVE (at least for now)--rumor has it the forecast for the weekend has the temps dropping one more time, but for the moment the Royals are playing in the balmiest weather they ve seen since the season began...last night s first pitch temperature of 60 degrees was 15 degrees warmer than any previous game this year and 21 degrees higher than the average temp for the first eight games of the year...today s first pitch is rumored to be around 70 degrees which will mark the first time KC has seen anything like that since leaving Arizona on March 25. DUPE STAYS PERFECT--One of the top replay reviewers in the game, Bill Duplissea has converted his first three opportunities this year, including in two of the last three games...his most recent successful contribution was on Monday when Duper noticed that Mike Moustakas had beaten the throw to first on a second inning infield hit and just 36 seconds into the review the much warmer studio crew in New York agreed...in his four-plus years as the replay coordinator, Duplissea has made good on over 66% of his challenges, which ranks among the best, including a season mark of 69% (24-for-35) last year, which was second to the New York Yankees 74% (28-of-38)...Duper closed 2016 as the best in baseball with a 69.2% success rate, converting 27 of 39 challenges.
