Game 121: Kansas City @ Chicago

Game Date: August 14, 2008
White Sox 9, Royals 2 / Box Score
WP: Broadway (1-0), LP: Davies (5-4)
Royal Home Runs: None
Royals Record: 54-67

Well, at least we scored.

The Royals actually had the lead early on when Jose Guillen singled in Mitch Maier and Mike Aviles in the first inning. The White Sox scored three runs in the second to take the lead and the score remained 3-2 until the sixth inning when the Sox hit back to back to back to back home runs (Thome, Konerko, Ramirez, Uribe). After Uribe crossed home plate, the Sox were up 9-2 and every ounce of life that may have existed in the Royals dugout was gone.

Joel Peralta gave up the first three bombs. Robinson Tejeda gave up the fourth.

I understand that the White Sox are a first place team and all, but this was a downright embarrassing series for the Royals.  They were outscored 22-2. Unfortunately, life doesn't get any easier this weekend. The Royals open a new series against the evil Yankees tonight.

Gil Meche (10-9, 4.24) will go up against Andy Pettitte (12-9, 4.32). Meche is 3-4 against the evil Yankees in his career with a 4.64 ERA in 66.0 IP. Pettitte is 12-3 against the Royals with a 3.58 ERA in 133.1 IP.
