Royals beat White Sox 3-2 in 13 innings after brawl

Sports

April 24th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — A benches-clearing fight led to five ejections several innings before Eric Hosmer hit the go-ahead double in the 13th to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night. With two outs, Hosmer’s hit off Chicago’s Jake Petricka (0-1) brought in Jarrod Dyson. Wade Davis then pitched a scoreless 13th for his fourth save, giving Franklin Morales (2-0) the victory.

Kansas City won for the fourth time in five games in a game in which tempers flared. Yordano Ventura snagged a grounder from Chicago outfielder Adam Eaton and they appeared to exchange words before Ventura threw to first to end the seventh inning. Eaton was restrained from Ventura. Players from both dugouts and bullpens ran onto the field and punches were thrown during a fight that lasted a couple of minutes.

Scherzer (1-2) also went seven innings, giving up two runs and six hits.

NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Mullin, the coach at St. John’s for less than a month, signed three transfers Thursday, two of whom will be eligible right away.
