KC is playing well this year, but they're starting three RHs so we should match up well against them.

A very nice win. Matt Wieters really came through with three RBIs.

I don't expect much offensively from Matt Wieters right now. It seems like August and September are the months he turns it up a notch 8-)

The top of the second inning was a perfect example of why Chris Tillman is not an elite pitcher despite his talent.

He has the back up C down 1 - 2 and just nibbles his way into a walk. Then he throws two nasty strikes to the next batter and, instead of just finishing him off with the very same stuff he just went 0 - 2 on, he nibbles his way to a 3 - 2 count and is forced to come in with three straight pitches over the plate which the batter couldn't handled resulting in two foul pop ups and a third pop up for the out.

WHEN is he going to accept that his stuff is good enough to go after a hitter when he has him down two strikes? The nibbling in the second cost him an entire extra innings' worth of pitches.
