Royals Rebound with Vengance


On a beautiful Sunday afternoon the Royals took the field in their first meeting of the season against the new look Ohio Mariner's.  The Royals were looking to rebound from their heart breaking loss on Opening Day to the Dayton Rangers and they came out of the gates swinging.  As the visitors the Royals led off the action, but we're hampered just briefly by some wet field conditions as the slippery batters box brought down Kevin Reynolds trying to leg out a first pitch hit.  After that misstep though they got on track as they would send 10 more batters to the dish in the top half of the 1st inning.  Neil Stafford and new Royal Brandon Reaman both reached on singles and Royals starting pitcher Shaun Delozier helped himself by belting a 2 RBI single.  Jesse French walked and moved up to second as Eric Jameson was able to reach base on a Mariner's miscue, and both guys were running hard off the bat as Royals 2014 Draftee Shane Page knocked his 1st of 3 hits on the day for his 1st hit in the league plating 2 more.  Royals Skipper and Catcher helped his pitcher knocking a 2 strike curveball just up the box to score Page.  When the dust finally settled the Royals had sent 11 batters to the plate picking up 6 runs to kick off the game.  The Mariner's calmed the Royals bats a bit in the 2nd, but in the 3rd 2 more Mariner's miscues and 2 hits allowed the Boys in Blue to score another 4 runs.  In the top of the 4th The Mariner's sent MVABL veteran pitcher Jeff Cherry to the hill.  Cherry worked quickly through the 1st 2 batters he faced getting a quick 6-3 ground out and his 1st K of the game, but alas another error extended the inning for the Royals allowing Page to reach base bringing Franklin up.  He turned on the 1st pitch fast ball from Cherry and belted a high, towering ball that carried and carried, but fell just short of leaving the park, but Page was hustling off the bat and was able to make the long haul trek from 1st to home ahead of the throw on the Franklin double.  With the score sitting at 11-0, and the heart of the Royals order due up things were not looking good for the Mariner's.  They were able to get another quick 6-3 groundout, but 3 straight hits from Reaman, Shawn Rudegeair, and another 2 RBI Delozier single got things going in the top of the 5th.  French was able to work a full count walk to reach base and Jameson got the RBI 5-3 FC and Page capped off the inning with another RBI single to reach the 15 run mark.  On the mound Delozier was nearly perfect throwing all 5 innings, picking up 7 K's and only offering up 1 walk.  The Boys in Blue played perfect defense on the day, rebounding from the Opening Day jitters, and the benefits showed as there were several great plays made to keep the Mariner's off the scoreboard on the day.

Up next for the Royals they travel back to AIA to face-off against the Braves and 2014 #1 Draft Pick Ryan Schlater.  Game time is 4pm, so be sure to come out and support your Boys in Blue as the look to put together their first win streak of the 2014 season.  Thanks to Shawn Rudegeair and Chad Campbell that made time on their Sunday afternoon to come out and help fill out the Royals Roster.

Former Royal caught on TV

For those Reds fans that may have been watching the Reds 2014 Opening Day "Day Game" you may have seen a face you might have recognized.  In the bottom of the 3rd Reds Outfielder Chris Heisey hit a towering foul ball into the second row of the stands where former Kettering Royal, Chris Smith ('10-'12) just happened to be seated.  Smith stood tall in his seat tracking the foul ball that Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams was also tracking, but Smith had position on the ball and made the catch over Adams glove to give Heisey new life.  What followed after the catch though wasn't very family friendly, but did the catch did get the sports shows and internet buzzing about the contact between player and fan.  It was pretty crazy to see a former teammate in the center of all the buzz.  Great Catch, but remember to keep it classy as you never know who is watching you.  Have to always set a good example for those little eyes and ears that share our passion for the game of baseball.
