Mark Teahen was back in Royals’ camp following Canada’s quick exit from the World Baseball Classic and got right back into the swing of things homering in the Royals 9-3 win over the White Sox.

Earlier in the week manager Trey Hillman was preaching patience at the plate and ever since then, the Royals have been knocking the ball around the park.  After the Royals loaded the bases in the fourth, Ross Gload hit a shot off the pitcher’s foot that caromed into short right field for a two-run double. Mark Teahen sent a high shot over the right-field bullpen for a two-run homer, his first. Chris Lubanski also got his first, a three-run shot that gave him a .500 (7-for-14) average. Coco Crisp had a perfect day with two walks and a single, raising his on-base percentage to .545. Mike Jacobs and Alex Gordon each had two hits.

Horacio Ramirez battling for a spot in the Royals rotation continues to show some little improvement.  He gave up six hits and three runs as he became the first  pitcher to go five innings. In his four games, Ramirez has a 5.25 ERA.

Kyle Davies is almost a lock for the rotation continued to pitch well tossing  pitched a scoreless sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth.
