Carp has yet to give up more than 3 runs in a start so far this season, but he's given up 3 in each of his last 2 starts. It helps his cause today that only the White Sox and Mariners in the AL have scored fewer runs per game than the Royals. I hate Brian Bannister. He shut us down earlier this year and, though he has a 4.01 ERA against us for his career, he's 3-1 against us. I hate getting beat by slopballers like him. Hopefully we can find a way to score a few runs and Carp can be Carp and then we can play for the sweep tomorrow.
