Batting Practice Doesn’t Translate as White Sox Beat Royals 3-1

“I think we’ve got guys who can definitely hit for power. If you don’t believe me, just watch BP.” -Ned Yost

Well, Royals fans…. We’re not far from Rock Bottom. Actually, we’re two games from Rock Bottom, but don’t worry. Dayton Moore still thinks that we can win with the players that are currently on the roster, and that’s why he isn’t selling.

The Royals lost again on Monday night, to push their current losing streak to four games. Without Eric Hosmer, their hottest hitter at the moment, out of the lineup, the Royals would have to find a way to manufacture runs without him. Unfortunately for Jeremy Guthrie, that wouldn’t happen.

Jeremy Guthrie got off to a bit of a rough start in the first inning after he allowed two White Sox players to score on two hit batters, a single, and an error.

Guthrie then settled down, and was able to keep the White Sox under control until they put one on the board in the sixth inning.

The Royals only real chance against Chris Sale was in the fourth, but even then they could only score one run, and I’m not exactly sure how they managed to do that. It was a Danny Valencia single to score Alex Gordon from second base.

This is what an all-in season looks like? I don’t think I want to know what a rebuilding season looks like. The Royals are now 48-50, and eight games back in the AL Central. If this doesn’t have ‘sell’ written all over it, I don’t know what does.
