6-3-08: Royals 5 - Sox 9

June 3, 2008 - Chicago, Illinois

For the love of the homer!

It seems the Sox found their offense against Kansas City, but then again so did KC. It looked hairy for awhile, but the Sox prevailed in the end.

Gavin Floyd pitched a decent game and the Sox found their home run swing. It seemed everyone got into the act. Four different Sox players hit homers. Pierzynski, Swisher, Ramirez and of course Quentin.
The good:
Four home runs by the Sox.
Bobby Jenks a perfect ninth.

The bad:
Paul Konerko was 0 for 3.

DeJesus had a stolen base.

The ugly:
Jim Thome was 0 for 4.

Alexei Ramirez had a fielding error.

The Sox held on to win this one. Every time the Sox wanted to relax a bit, the Royals snuck up on them with a few more runs. It looks like the Royals may be turning back into the team they were at the beginning of the year.
