Royals Sweep White Sox

Game Date: May 5, 2009 
Chicago @ Kansas City 
Royals 8, White Sox 7 (11 inn.) / Box Score
WP: Cruz (2-0), LP: Broadway (0-1)
KC Home Runs: Jacobs (4), Callaspo (2)
Royals Record: 16-11 / Record in May 4-1

In contrast to last night, this one wasn’t pretty. The Royals fell behind by four runs in the third inning. Davies was struggling and the White Sox looked to be on the verge of blowing the game wide open. Then Mike Jacobs hit a three-run bomb to center field to pull the Royals to within a run. The White Sox countered with two more runs, but the Royals clawed their way back with some great plate appearances (they drew 11 walks for the night) and they tied the game 7-7 at the end of seven. Jamey Wright did an outstanding job to keep the White Sox scoreless for the eighth, ninth, and ten innings. And then in the eleventh inning, John Buck singled in the winning run.
