Player Notes
Joe Blanton tossed 3 2/3 innings of scoreless ball in relief Tuesday against the Pirates.

Advice: Stepping in for the injured Jason Vargas, Blanton pitched admirably to keep the Royals in the game. The right-hander gave up just two hits while striking out five in the appearance. He didn't earn a decision for his efforts, but it was a nice showing for the 34-year-old nonetheless. Blanton now owns a 3.96 ERA on the year.
