Elliot Johnson predicts the future

Before the Royals left on this trip, Elliot Johnson discussed Tropicana Field and what to look for during this series. He said balls do not carry well in center field. Smart pitchers will use that to their advantage. They pitch to the big part of the park — here it is, try to hit it over the center-field wall — and then count on their center fielders to run the fly balls down. He also said the ball would carry well down the lines, and Johnson hit his home run to right field, about halfway up the bottom section of seats.
