Big time win for the boys today!! Felt great to be out there again wearing that "Royals" logo across my chest.— Johnny Giavotella (@Gio2bKC) June 30, 2013
The three hits were great, he says, but the Royals' pulsating 9-8 win was even better.
"The hits helped us win, so that's what matters," he says.
With the initial excitement of his call-up now subsiding, Giavotella must turn his attention toward keeping the job, his third try at doing so in three years.
"I actually feel less pressure now than I did before," he says. "I have a good rapport with the guys in the clubhouse. I've been here before. I've played with these guys before, so that takes pressure off. I can't think that this is my big opportunity. I just have to play my game and help the team win and everything will take care of itself."
