The Kansas City Royals opened the 2019 season with a win at Kaufmann Stadium over the Chicago White Sox by a score of 5 – 3.
Royals put up a 5 – 0 lead going into the 9th inning when things started to go haywire as the Royals bullpen ran into trouble. The Royals closers walked their way into a bases load situation with only one out. The White Sox drove home 3 runs before the Royals pitching finally regained control and putting the game away.
The game was delayed by 2 hours due to rain and lighting in Kansas City. The Royals had 5 runs on 5 hits and no errors while the White Sox gave up 3 wins on 4 hits and committed 3 errors. The Royals have Friday off before hosting the White Sox again Saturday afternoon with the first pitch at 1:15 and the Pre-Game Show beginning at 12:30 Saturday afternoon on KGGF 690AM.
