Inside the Box: D-backs bring out brooms in K.C.

After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s
time to go Inside the Box for June 23, 2011: Diamondbacks 5, Royals 3

The Good:

Homeruns by Miguel Montero in the second and Juan Miranda in the fourth pushed the D-backs to a win in Kansas City, completing the sweep of the Royals. Though each home run was a solo shot, the hard-hitting D-backs lit up Royals starter Felipe Paulino, who looked confounded by the hitters he was facing, for nine hits and five earned runs over his eight innings.

The Bad:

A throwing error by Miguel Montero brought in two runs for the Royals, allowing a team the D-backs dominated the rest of the night to get back in the game. Maybe it was Montero’s idea of a cruel joke or a show of his confidence, but his bad throw brought in two runs that could have been avoided.

The Funky:

The D-backs have dominated interleague play this season with a record of 15-4 and swept the Twins, Astros and Royals.
