Lance Lynn shuts out Royals

It just wasn’t a good night.

The Chicago White Sox handed the Kansas City Royals their second straight loss after being shut out 6-0 on Thursday.

Lance Lynn pitched the first complete game of the season of any pitcher in Major League Baseball, only allowing five hits on the evening. Tony La Russa won his first home game as manager of the White Sox since 1986 when they defeated the-then California Angels.

Lynn struck out 11 batters and didn’t allow a single walk. Overall, it was pure domination.

Kansas City just didn’t have an answer.

Brad Keller (0-1), Kansas City’s starter of the game, allowed four runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings. Somehow that was an improvement as last week against the Rangers, he was only able to get four outs before being pulled out of the game.

On Friday, Mike Minor will get the start for the Royals as they look to bounce back after a hot start to their season.
