1. Five runs in the first – heck of a jumpstart.
2. Four more hits from Austin Jackson – raising his batting average from .284 to .314.
3. Outstanding defense – especially Don Kelly in left and Prince Fielder at first base.
4. Rick Porcello pitching a lot better than in his last two starts – especially that debacle two starts ago against Texas.
5. And the Royals playing like the 6-16 team they are.
