Royals lose 6-5 in homer-happy affair

One homer too many for the White Sox.

David Banks

The Kansas City Royals lost 6-5 tonight to the Chicago White Sox at U.S Cellular Field, as dozens who watched can attest.

  • Yordano Ventura was tagged in his third MLB start, allowing four runs on six hits over four innings. The rookie surrendered three home runs, striking out two while walking one. Ventura's stuff is noticeable, but he still has some things to work on before next season.
  • The Royals also hit three homers. Mike Moustakas blasted a solo homer, while Billy Butler and Salvador Perez each smacked two-run homers. Eric Hosmer was the only Kansas City batter outside of those three to collect a hit.
  • Tim Collins served up a two-run homer to Conor Gillaspie in bottom of the seventh inning, which proved to be the difference in the game. Chris Dwyer, Louis Coleman and Aaron Crow also worked out the bullpen.
  • Sunday will be the regular season finale, with Bruce Chen facing off against Jose Quintana.
