Royals/White Sox Benches Clear


 

Tempers flare in Chicago as the Royals and White Sox had a benches clearing incident in the bottom of the 6th inning. In the bottom of the 4th inning Chicago Shortstop Tim Anderson hit a two run home run and had a nice bat flip to celebrate which Royals Pitcher Brad Keller didn't seem to appreciate too much. In Anderson's next at bat Keller hit him with a pitch resulting in the benches clearing.

 

Things got pretty heated between the two mangers as well Ned Yost and Rick Renteria. Brad Keller saw his first career ejection and Tim Anderson his 4th. The game still goes one and you can tune in on Start 98.9 KQQF.

Royals Hit Streak Record Broken


 

Not a lot has gone right for the Royals this season after winning their first two games.  However, second baseman Whit Merriefield entered tonight’s games on a 30 game hit streak dating back to last season. He needed one hit to break the franchise record.  In the 7th inning he laid down an RBI bunt single that tied the game and broke the record. 

 

Unfortunately for the Royals they gave up the go ahead run in the top of the 9th and couldn’t get a run across with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th losing 6-5.  Now at a nine game losing streak they finish the series against the Mariners tomorrow with pregame at 11:30 and first pitch at 12:15 on Star 98.9 KQQF.
