Royals Even the Series

Game Date: July 5, 2009
Chicago @ Kansas City
Royals 6, White Sox 3 / Box Score
WP: Bannister (6-6), LP: Richard (3-2), SV: Soria (12)
KC Home Runs: Olivo (13)
Royals Record: 35-46 / Record in July 2-3

What is this offense that you speak of? The Royals had 14 hits—eight of which came from the top three hitters. The bottom of the order wasn’t bad either. Brayan Pena and Alberto Callaspo were a combined 3-for-7 with 2 RBI and a walk.

Brian Bannister is quietly putting together a solid season and he picked up another win today. At 6-6 with a 3.87 ERA he fits into the rotation nicely. Joakim Soria is starting to look like his old self again. And the bullpen in general hasn’t been bad the last couple of days.

You just never know which version of this team is going to show up from one day to the next. But at least they found a way to even the series with the White Sox. They’ll begin a new series in Detroit tomorrow night.

Gil Meche (4-8, 4.20) will go up against  Armando Galarrago (5-7, 5.34). Meche is 8-5 in his career against the Tigers with a 3.79 ERA in 114.0 IP. Galarraga is 2-0 against the Royals with a 1.80 ERA in 20.0 IP.
