Nice job by the pitchers to overcome the errors.

Can't complain about the power and the pen work. Time to bust out the brooms, boys!

I don't think errors will continue to be a problem. Alexei's and Viciedo's errors are both strictly on Vicideo. For whatever reason, he was just out of it that inning. Wise was kind of flukish as well. Maybe a gust of wind?

Very happy. Peavy came out firing on all cylinders, Dunn got on base 3 times, Reed went 1-2-3 in the 9th and the bullpen finished that tough 7th inning.

Nice win and the first series win of the year!

But that will make us just like the 2006, 2008 and 2010 White Sox, way too reliant on power!!!

Default The First Place White Sox

The first place White Sox will bring out the broom tomorrow and will sweep the Royals. Kansas City will leave Chicago without any heart and they will continue to lose. I'm sure the Royals manager will be the first manager to be fired in 2013. Meanwhile the White Sox will continue to win game after game and will clinch a 2013 Playoff spot by Labor Day.

It was a nice win and the pitching has been outstanding. The home runs were nice, but I also would like to see runners score when in scoring position by line drives up the middle. We are not going to hit 4 home runs every game..!!

If Twinkies and Blue Jays win, sole posession of first place.

Clean up the errors. Other than that, hard to complain thus far.

I could go for a hit with a runner in scoring position. Unless these guys are actually planning on hitting 648 home runs this season.

I was thinking the same thing, but twice today with two outs and runners in scoring postion, Sox hitters had good at bats and hit the ball well. Today the killer as far as scoring baserunners was Flowers trying to score on a pitch in the dirt. I don't know if anyone shouted for him to break for home. Keppinger didn't seem to be waving him in. But again, he homered to break the tie, putting the Sox ahead for good, the game-winning hit, and caught a good game.

Today's game wasn't particularly well-played. Aside from the baserunning mistake and issues in left, the defense was solid, though, and the pitching very good. As in the opener, the Royals were facing a pitcher they had hit well in the past and really couldn't put anything together. The Ramirez error appared to be the fault of Viciedo who didn't seem to be calling for the fly and didn't seem to care that Ramirez was. Booting a two-out hit and allowing the runner to score from first led to half the Royals' scoring so far this week. The Royals later scored a fundamental run by scoring a leadoff double without hitting the ball out of the infield. That would have been huge if the Sox bullpen hadn't shut down the Royals with the bases loaded and the tying run in scoring position after the Wise error.

I don't know what was going on with the Sox in left today. Viciedo is still developing defensively as an outfielder, some of his minor league development being spent at third base. The mistakes seemed to be mental. Maybe he will learn from them. De Aza and Beckham made some nice plays on defense, though.

Today, it again came down to the pitching. Peavy had a very nice start. The bullpen did its job working its way out of a bases-loaded jam. Santana did well with his breaking pitches, was able to throw them for strikes, but the Sox beat him on his fastball. The home runs provided a little margin for error, that was needed today because of some poor play in left. Fortunately the pitching was good enough that the Sox didn't need the run(s) they didn't score after loading the bases with one out.

Dunn looked much better offensively today, especially being more active early in the count. Going for the sweep, the Sox will be facing Guthrie, who is coming off a very good season. Maybe, despite looking so good in spring training, early in the season is the best time to catch the Royals, as it was last year.

Really, it's nice to start off the season with a couple of wins at home, especially against two pitchers who were supposed to be key in turning around the Royals fortunes.
