Gillaspie’s Homer Leads To Sox Sweep

Posted by willp on August 22, 2013

Conor Gillaspie’s 12th-inning home run off Luke Hochevar clinched a Chicago White Sox sweep of the Kansas City Royals, as the Southsiders won the finale, 4-3.

The Royals had opportunities to win with men on in the ninth and 11th and also had chance to tie in the 12th with baserunners on, but fell short.

Addison Reed shut the door around a leadoff walk as he earned saves in all three games. Jarrod Dyson stole second pinch-running for Billy Butler, but was stranded.

Kansas City has lost five in a row, and eight out of their last ten games. The Royals welcome in the Washington Nationals to Kauffman Stadium beginning Friday night.
