No More Willie Bloomquist Batting Third For The Royals

On Wednesday the Royals beat the Tigers on a 12th inning home run from Willie Bloomquist. Before the game, Royals manager Ned Yost put Bloomquist in the third spot in the batting order and later said that he "guaranteed" Bloomquist would get at least a couple of hits

He was right as that home run was his second hit of the evening.

The Royals aren't going back to the Bloomquist in third rotation instead opting for Kila Ka'aihue at that spot. Billy Butler is out with a sore hand -- an injury that could keep him out for the entire series.

Bloomquist is batting sixth.
