Royals Destroy White Sox, Continue Storybook September


A day after an unlikely offensive explosion, the Royals did it again. Kansas City banged out thirteen hits and drew six walks, en route a 11-0 whitewashing of a lifeless White Sox team in Chicago. At 72-76, the White Sox might now finally be out of it, even in the wimpy AL Central.

  • Luke Hochevar picked a good night for a comeback start. Hochevar threw a complete game shutout, allowing just three hits and a walk. Perhaps the pitch tipping issue has been resolved. If anyone thinks they have Hochevar figured out, let us know.
  • Miguel Olivo, perhaps enraged that he was traded by Chicago five years ago blasted two homers, drew a walk, and added a sacrifice fly. Revenge game!
  • Billy Butler, David DeJesus, John Buck, and Alex Gordon also had big nights. Hmm... what do all these dudes have in common?
  • And, of course, we got our usual ration of late-game defensive switcheration and pinch-runners. Josh Anderson is pretty much the greatest late-game defensive sub of all time, although it hurts to see him come in for St. Willie. We need those guys on the field together!
  • The Royals are now 10-6 in September.
