Fantasy Baseball Players of the Day – 4/3
Thursday, April 3rd
Alex Gordon set the table for Kansas City’s sweep of Detroit with a two-one home run in teh 4th inning, which would prove to be enough for the victory. For the game he went 2-5 with a run scored and a pair of RBI. Christian Guzman, Lastings Milledge, Jesus Flores, Geoff Jenkins, Garrett Atkins, Scott Hairston, and Chipper each had three hits.
On the mound Johnny Cueto was marvelous. He struck out 10 in seven innings of work. He didn’t walk a single batter, and the only hit he gave up was a HR to Justin Upton. Not a bad MLB debut. John Danks (6.7 innings, 1 run on 2 hits) won a pitchers’ duel with Jake Westbrook (7.3 innings, 2 runs). Brad Thompson struck out 6 in 6.7 shutout innings. Zack Greinke fired seven innings allowing just one hit.
