Just to recap:

  • Royals scored a first inning run on a Billy Butler double
  • James Shields was awesome - 8 IP 2 H 0 R 2 BB 9 K. Ned pulled him after eight innings and 102 pitches. The right call?

  • The White Sox are bloody awful on the basepaths.
  • Shields actually had a no-no going til the sixth when Jeff Francoeur allowed a catchable ball to fall harmlessly to the ground.
  • Frenchy also had an awesome throw to nail a runner (remember what I said about Chicago being bloody awful on the basepaths?)
  • Hawk Harrelson is having a conniption
