They also have yet to lose. Therefore Royals fans should hope for delays before every game for the rest of the season. Also, for what it’s worth, the last time the Royals started a season 2-0 they won the World Series. So let’s do that again.Jakob Junis, in a miniature of his 2018 season, cruised in this game right up until he didn’t. The moment also happened to be at the same time as the White Sox started their third trip through the order. Coincidence? Probably not. In the end, he came in just shy of a quality start with 5.2 innings pitched and three runs allowed. He did strike out six and only walked one Wei-Yin Chen Jersey
, but he also gave up the first home run in Kaufman stadium this season. A three-run bomb to Jose Abreu.In contrast, White Sox starter Reynaldo Lopez struggled all day. Lopez, facing a Royals lineup that many have criticized as lacking the ability to reach base, walked four while only striking out a pair in four innings. He also gave up six hits and four runs to qualify for the loss.The Royals bats were definitely working today even without Lopez on the mound. Billy Hamilton had three hits and two runs scored; Alex Gordon walked twice, and was hit by a pitch once, and scored all three times he reached base; and Jorge Soler justified his position in the batting order with a three-for-three day that included a pair of doubles, a walk Jeff Locke Jersey
, and three RBI. Whit Merrifield continued his hitting streak from last year, raising it to 23 games, and Adalberto Mondesi added another extra-base hit - this time a double. Chris Owings was the only Royal with a stolen base, though.Ned Yost meant it when he said there were no assigned roles in the bullpen - except that Kyle Zimmer will remain off the field. Brad Boxberger, who collected the save Thursday night, pitched the seventh inning today. He allowed three runs including a two-run shot to Yoan Moncada. Jake Diekman pitched a much cleaner eighth. Ian Kennedy was called upon to pitch the ninth and things looked a bit iffy for a minute when he allowed two singles on the first two pitches he threw but they would not advance any further as he retired the next three batters to earn his first career save. Tim Hill appeared in the sixth inning to clean up Junis’ mess; he did so with aplomb.Last year the White Sox started the season by sweeping KC to start the year. Tomorrow the Royals will attempt to return the favor. Lucas Giolito will pitch for the Sox while Jorge Lopez will go for the Royals. Hopefully, the Royals can keep scoring enough runs to cover for a troubled bullpen. LONDON (AP) — Major league baseball’s first game in Europe received a royal launch.Prince Harry and wife Meghan Cameron Maybin Jersey
, the Duchess of Sussex, took part in the ceremonial first pitch before the New York Yankees played the Boston Red Sox. The couple left month-old son Archie home as Meghan made one of her few public appearances since giving birth.They strolled to the mound at London Stadium along with 10 participants in the Invictus Games, an international project started by Harry to give wounded military men and women a chance to compete.Harry did not address the crowd — or risk throwing the first pitch and having it land in the dirt. He instead ceded honors to Invictus veterans, who performed credibly.Meghan wore a simple black dress and skipped the spiky heels she sometimes favors for her walk on the infield dirt (brought from the U.S.) and artificial turf (from France.) Harry wore black slacks and a matching shirt.They chatted with pitchers CC Sabathia of the Yankees and Chris Sale of the Red Sox during the ceremony.Harry has played polo in public many times and flown a helicopter with British forces in Afghanistan. He has also hiked in the Arctic with wounded veterans. But Saturday marked his first public appearance at a major league baseball game.The couple plan to resume a full-scale royal schedule in about four months with a trip to South Africa that will mark Archie’s debut on the international stage. Harry will continue on his own to other African countries. The date and itinerary have not been set.Harry and brother Prince William have taken increasingly visible public roles in recent years as their grandmother, 93-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, eases her schedule and refrains from long flights.
