Royals 2, White Sox 9
Jim Thome can hit. His 3 run homerun in the fifth inning put this game away. It was 3-0 when Thome came up to bat, but after his hit landed in the right field bleachers, the game was well out of reach for the Royals.
Javier Vasquez was the story of the night. Vasquez's perfect game was broken up in the sixth inning, and the Royals had no chance of mounting a comeback.
Esteban German had a good game in his second start since taking over third base from Mark Teahen who was sent to AAA Omaha yesterday. The other "prize" of the Beltran trade, John Buck, sat again today has manager Buddy Bell continues to tinker with his lineup in order to change things up. Backup catcher Paul Bako got the start.
Starter Runelvyz Hernandez hit his first hiccup since returning to the rotation, giving up 6 runs.
Speculation and turmoil continues to swirl around the team as the owner continues to threaten to make "significant changes."
