Santana, Bullpen impress in victory

-Royals improve to 14-2-1 with a 4-2 victory over Seattle.

-Ervin Santana allowed a solo home run, but otherwise was dynamite. He struck out seven Mariners in just four innings, while allowing only two hits and not surrendering a walk. 

-Santana's numbers are impressive this spring. 9 innings pitched, 6 hits, 2 earned runs, 13 strikeouts and only one walk. He was asked after the game if he's a strikeout pitcher. He replied, "Do you remember what happened in 2008?" Santana struck out a career-best 214 in '08.

-Reliever Everett Teaford made his first major league spring training appearance of 2013 today, throwing a 1-2-3 inning. Teaford joked that Royals fans had forgotten about him, "for all the fans, I'm still here, who don't believe it."

-Ned Yost admitted after the game that outfielder Xavier Nady is battling plantar fasciitis. Nady had one of the Royals 4 RBI. (Perez, Butler & Lough with the others)

-Relievers Donnie Joseph (1 IP, 1 K), Dan Wheeler (1 IP, 1 H, 3 K) & Aaron Crow (1 IP, 1 K) drew the praise of Ned Yost.
