In the Royals' first five games, DH Billy Butler had driven in a single run.

Today against the Phillies he had seven RBI.

With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Brandon Belt who had been 0 for 13 in '13 so far, came through in the clutch. He singled and came around to score, changing what would have been a 14-2 St. Louis victory into a 14-3 St. Louis victory.

Matt Cain pitched six shutout innings in the opener and retired the first nine straight Cardinals he faced today. Then in the 4th inning he gave up seven hits, two walks and nine earned runs.

Roy Halladay got rocked again in his second start of the season. 4 innings, 6 hits, 3 walks, 7 earned runs. In 7 and 1/3 innings this year he has allowed 18 base runners and three home runs.

His poor performance, should it continue, could result in his becoming a free agent after this season. His contract is automatically renewed for 2014 if he pitches 225 innings. If not, it becomes the club's option to renew or let Halladay walk. At his current pace of averaging 3.5 innings per start, Halladay would pitch 126 innings in 36 starts.

Yesterday, in the process of beating the Giants 14-3, the Cardinals batted around in the 4th inning and scored nine runs.

Tonight against the Reds St. Louis lost 14-4, yielding nine runs in the top of the ninth.

Speaking of Roy Halladay and oddities. His first start he only lasted 3 and a third innings, but 9 of his 10 outs were via strikeout. Never saw anything like it.

While not that extreme, about half of Tim Lincecum's starts last season were like that..lots of everything. Lots of strikeouts, lots of hits, lots of walks, lots of runs. He was passing a 100 pitches by the fifth or sixth inning of each outing.

Have you ever seen a team get 22 hits and 16 runs and still have a player in their lineup achieve the golden sombrero, going 0-4 with 4 strikeouts?!

It was a first for me.

Of course, that player was none other than Brett Wallace, who is now 1-for-21 with 17 strikeouts. (.048 / .091 / .048) and averaging 2.8 strikeouts per game.

If he were to play in the remaining games this season, he would strikeout a total of 452 times.

And to think this guy used to be a first round draft pick and top prospect in 3 separate organizations.

Their hitters were. 10 hits, four walks, one error and nine runs doesn't make for Run Prevention Pride Day in Houston.

High wire act...

Jarrod Parker started against the Angels last night and was god awful, in three and a third innings he gave up nine hits and three walks, but miraculously was only tagged for two runs. Two double plays saved his bacon, the first in the opening frame when LA loaded the bases with no outs, the second one coming in the third when Cespedes made a spectacular catch at the wall in leftfield, and then a Donaldson to Moss relay doubled off Pujols trying to get back to first.

On August 2nd of last year, Barry Zito started for the Giants, was lit up for seven runs in four innings and San Francisco lost 9-1 to the Mets.

Since that date Zito has started 12 more 2012 regular season games, three in the 2012 post season, and two in the 2013 regular season.

The Giants have won all 16 of those games. Zito is 11-0 in those games.

Zito has not yielded a run in his two starts of 2013 so far, covering 14 innings.
