This has to be one of Zach Greinke’s finest starts for the Royals. First the good news. The Royals win 3-0, split the series with Sox and remain in fourth place. Now for the better news. Greinke, 8 innings, 2 hits, and as I mentioned 10 strikeouts. Soria, picks up the save in the 9 th .
Back to back doubles by John Buck and Tony Pena Jr, and a sacrifice fly by Esteban German got the Royals on the board with two runs in the sixth off Sox starter John Garland. Pena would add a sacrifice fly in the eigth.
For Greinke, it’s his second win since going back in the starting rotation. I love stats and Royals fans will love this one. Against the White Sox this year, 15 2/3 innings pitched, 0 runs, 5 hits, 1 walk, and 14 strikeouts.
