Against left-handed starters, the Royals are 1-13 and the Mariners have a .643 team OPS. And you thought Friday's game was fast.

In other news, via Hit Tracker Online, we learn that Adrian Beltre's home run somehow left the bat at 110mph, and that Richie Sexson's first longball was the second-longest by a Mariner hitter all year. Also, Raul Ibanez's line drive homer the night before topped out at just 48 feet above the playing field after leaving the bat at a 22.1 degree angle above the horizontal, which makes it one of the straightest home runs hit by anyone this season. Neat.
