Royals rookies rake in rout, 6-2

Zach Greinke had a solid outing and the rookie hitters for the Royals had a field day at the dish as Kansas City beats Chicago 6-2. The Royals quickly jumped on Lucas Giolito. In the bottom of the first, the Royals loaded the bases with a single and two walks, but MJ Melendez struck out to end the threat. The White Sox got on the board in the second inning when Leury Garcia singled home Jose Abreu, who had led off the inning with a double. The Royals responded immediately. With two out in the bottom of the frame, Nicky Lopez grounded a single, stole second base, and came around to score on a Whit Merrifield single. In the bottom of the third, Bobby Witt Jr. led off the inning. He got a hanging breaking ball from Giolito and crushed it out to center field for a no doubt home run, his fourth of the season. That gave Witt his third straight game with an extra base hit and gave the Royals a 2-1 lead.

Royals call up outfielder Dairon Blanco

The Royals have selected the contract of outfielder Dairon Blanco from Triple-A Omaha and have placed Michael A. Taylor on the Injured List. Taylor was a late scratch from Wednesday’s game and Lynn Worthy reports he was out due to COVID-19 protocols for contact tracing. Because Taylor is out for COVID-19 reasons, a 40-man roster move is not necessary to add Blanco.

Kansas City Royals veteran Zack Greinke praises rookie MJ Melendez’s work at catcher

Kansas City Royals rookie catcher MJ Melendez knows he has a job to do and that Zack Greinke is just a teammate. A pitcher just like the others he works with on a daily basis. But he’s also Zack Greinke. So Melendez couldn’t help being a little bit awestruck when he got the stamp of approval from the former Cy Young Award winner who is likely to be enshrined in Cooperstown some day.

Sox observations: Giolito battles through bad control

Just two days after clawing their way back to a winning record, the White Sox once again find themselves below .500. The same bugaboos continue to haunt the team: a lack of clutch hitting, and mistakes in the field. It’s the middle of May, so what once could be explained away by a slow start due to a shortened Spring Training, can now only be described as a troubling trend. Here are the three biggest takeaways as the South Siders fell to 18-19.
