Guthrie Shuts Sox Down

April 4 vs. Kansas City


Today's Game Rating:
2 stars
The Sox tried, but in the end, the bad guys won out. Gordon Beckham earned the extra star.

Short Take:   Guthrie holds off hitters as Sox drop finale

The White Sox closed their opening series against the Royals this afternoon. They looked for a sweep but were denied, dropping the game 3-1.

Gavin Floyd made his season debut today. Despite his stats, he actually threw a good game. The Royals picked up three runs, two earned, on four hits and a walk when Floyd was on the mound. An error from Alejandro De Aza in the top of the fifth led to the one unearned run. Hector Santiago pitched three innings of relief, allowing just one hit and one walk.

Despite Floyd's relatively good game, Sox hitters could not figure out Royals' starter Jeremy Guthrie. In his last four appearances against the Sox, Guthrie posted a 1-0 record with a 0.30 ERA. And he continued his mastery this afternoon. Sox hitters could not put those runs together like they did the last two days, scoring just one run on five hits during Guthrie's six innings pitched. They couldn't score on relievers Aaron Crow, Kelvin Herrera and Greg Holland either.

The Sox picked up eight hits total against the four Royals pitchers, and Gordon Beckham picked up half of them. He went 4-for-4, all of them singles, in the team's losing effort. Tyler Flowers kept up his hitting, going 1-for-1 with two walks. Alex Rios picked up two hits, and Alejandro De Aza picked up one. Dayan Viciedo had an awful day at the plate, going 0-for-4. Unfortunately for Viciedo, all four plate appearances ended in strikeouts. Adam Dunn's day wasn't much better, as he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

The Sox start their second series of this young season against the Seattle Mariners tomorrow night. Jose Quintana gets his first start of the season, and he faces off against Blake Beavan. Catch the game at 7:10 on WCIU.

WSI's
Hawk and Stoney's Thumb Guide:
 STONE: Thumbs down. Those pesky Royals are at it again. HAWK: Agreed, Stone Pony. Thumbs down for the team, but a thumbs up for young Gordon Beckham! He had himself a day at the plate!
