Things got awfully blue in the seventh inning, as the Kansas City Royals melted a 4-0 lead and seemingly sent the Sox to a second straight loss.

The Royals, who had announced Jakob Junis as today’s starter at the onset of the series, sprung opener Kevin McCarthy on Chicago to start the game.

We’re only on day four of the Kansas City area’s stay in place edict and it feels like we’ve been doing this for four months, so I’m very much looking forward to whenever it is we can get out and about and hit a game. Heck, I may even let some of you buy me a beer this summer at The K. If you’re lucky.

Well, it was a rough one, as the White Sox dropped their home opener in front of a frosty-cold crowd at Sox Park. Chicago wasted a valiant effort from Lucas Giolito (six innings, four hits, two walks, one earned, six Ks) and four hits from Eloy Jiménez in a fall-from-ahead loss to the Royals, 4-3. Giolito had a rough first, as a Whit Merrifield single, Jorge Soler double and Hunter Dozier sac fly put K.C. up, 1-0.
