I was at that game. I was living in KC and a Royals season ticket holder at the time. I remember it for the 'Pedro at his peak' expectations going into the game and then seeing him struggle yet hang in there. It's really interesting he remembers it as a point of pride.
Pedro rebounded in the next start vs TB with a shutout, striking out 13, giving up 1 hit. Gerald Williams HBP to lead off the game then didn't give up his first hit until John Flaherty's single to begin the 9th. The shutout only brought his ERA down to 1.68. Scary good.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
