Kila Ka’aihue and Alcides Escobar each cracked out two-run homers and Alex Gordon doubled in his fourth straight game with an extra-base hit.

Bronson Arroyo pitched five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and struck out three. Arroyo was coming back after four days with an illness.

MLB NOTES: Kansas City Royals

from staff and wire reports

Rick Ankiel gets a fresh start in KC (stlpd)

The Kansas City Royals have long been the whipping boys in the American League. But in 2010, the fans of Kansas City hope they’ll finally have a winner and contender.

The Royals do have some good young talent with pitchers Zack Greinke and Gil Meche  and power hitting from Alex Gordon, Billy Butler and Willie Bloomquist.

This past off-season, general manager Dayton Moore went out and signed free agent outfielders Rick Ankiel to play center field and Scott Posednick to play in left field. Former left fielder and fan favorite, David DeJesus will move from left to right. Most fans wonder, where will Jose Guillen play?

The Royals want Guillen to be the fulltime DH, but he wants to play outfield and nothing else. Guillen was limited last season to 81 games due to various injuries. He was disabled three times while hitting  .242 with 9 homers and 40 RBI’s. When he is in right field, no one in baseball has a better arm than Jose Guillen.

Rick Ankiel is also making a comeback. He was never the same in 2009 for the St. Louis Cardinals after he ran headfirst into a wall making a spectacular catch. He said that he never got over the stiffness and soreness associated with that type of injury.
