Royals Buzz: Top Tweets from ‘Ace’ Ventura’s first start of the season
The Buzz: Yordano Ventura
The Skinny: At this point, it’s not breaking news that Yordano Ventura throws absolute fireballs towards the dish. "Ace" tossed six scoreless innings of two-hit ball in his first start of the season and was abusing the radar gun all night. Twitter was buzzing throughout and here are some of our favorite comments from his performance.
So yeah, apparently nothing has changed since spring training. I still want to watch every pitch Yordano Ventura throws this year #Royals

#Royals Ventura final line in season debut: 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K, 95 pitches, 62 strikes, and he managed to hurt Wil Myers' feelings.
