Hochevar Picks up the Win

Game Date: July 4, 2009
Chicago @ Kansas City
Royals 6, White Sox 4 / Box Score
WP: Hochevar (4-3), LP: Floyd (6-6), SV: Soria (11)
KC Home Runs: B. Pena (2)
Royals Record: 34-46 / Record in July 1-3

Luke Hochevar was far from stellar this afternoon. In fact, usually when one of our starting pitcher gives up four earned runs it’s as good as a loss, but not today. We got a nice mix of timely hitting, situational hitting, a good effort from our bullpen, and even a long ball. It’s hard to get excited about one game, but let’s hope there’s a little carry over for the game tomorrow.

Tomorrow afternoon, Brian Bannister (5-6, 3.93) will go up against Clayton Richard (3-1, 4.48). Bannister is 2-4 in his career against the White Sox with an 8.15 ERA in 49.2 IP. Richard is 1-1 against the Royals with a 4.15 ERA in 17.1 IP.
