Ah, sunny day in the South Side of Chicago at guaranteed rate field as the Chicago White Sox host the Kansas City Royals on this Saturday afternoon on SportsCastr here, I'm Gary Wenzel, and, like I said before Saturday, August 29th 2020 the Kansas City Royals will take on the Chicago White Sox, the Chicago White Sox 20 and 12 on the year.
The Kansas City Royals the opposite 12 and 20 on the air.
Right? Socks are very hot.
It's look at the standings.
The White Sox are currently sitting tied in first place with the Indians in Minnesota.
Twins a big death in that ale Central Division, as the are.
They are all tied at 20 and 12.
Those three teams in the A L Central.
Dylan ceases on the mound, and we are underway here in the South Side of Chicago as that one's felt off by Whit Merrifield and the count goes doing one first pitch swinging there.
Mary Fields batting to 97 on the year with six home runs, see if he could hit another one out and sees the pitch, and that one time the zone flown out to right field, and that one is snagged by right fielder.
Who is right? Feeler Murza Maar Zaro.
Dylan Sees Last outing.
Had six innings pitched.
Four hits, two runs.
Two of those were earned, all of them and three walks and five strikeouts on their Sunday lost to the Chicago Cubs.
He threw 103 pitches that game.
So far, very productive.
Inning in game for Dylan.
See? Says two pitches Want out and there's a curve ball that bounces in the dirt with a lot of break on.
It started in the top of the zone and fell all the way into the dirt.
Dozier holds off on it, and it's want to know the count in guaranteed rate field in the top of the first inning.
There's a fastball.
He takes account at it, and he finds the back of the mitt of Grendel accounts evened up.
Now, at one and one, you could see the Jackie Robinson patches still on the White Sox hats.
Jackie Robinson day was yesterday.
There's another curve ball swung by Dozier.
Like I was saying Jackie Robinson Day was yesterday.
They were all wearing 42 had the patches on the jerseys today, there back to the normal jerseys but still have the patch on the hat.
So it's a great way to celebrate Jackie Robinson weekend as two counts one and two, and that one's way outside and no question about it, and the count is two into one.
Sunny Day in Chicago does yours hitting 2 41 on the season counts.
Even that's you into.
And there's a curveball that Mrs Outside and the count will go full.
As you could see, Dylan ceases pitch breakdown.
He throws a 44 seamer 46% of the time, Slider 32% and change up and curveball changeup being 12%.
And Curveball being 10% not doesn't like to use those pitches a lot, and there's a fastball that gets away from him, and he'll issue his first walk of the day.
Quickly reaches eight pitches after that to pitch one out situation to get Merrifield out from a fly out to right field.
And now there's a man on first and he's at a pitches as Jorge Soler steps in Teoh the plate First.
I'm working out of the stretch today.
There's a fastball in the top of the zone, but the up calls it a ball, and the count goes to want to know right in the top of that K zone Should of Venice.
If it was a robot on could have been called a strike for sure sets up low.
In a way, there's the pitch that's a curve ball that bounces about 4 ft in front of home plate.
Don't seize his curveball.
Has a lot of movement on it.
That's the second one that got away from him and into the dirt on the counts.
One on one, and you could see the shift they have on sole heir, three of them on the left side of the infield.
I did not get a chance to catch their names before the graphic.
One away anyways.
One and one. The count.
And that one is a curveball that doesn't break too much and is well outside at 84 miles an hour, and the count is two and one.
There you can see a great view, often empty, guaranteed rate stadium.
It's a very packed stadium, full with seats, not the greatest view as a fastball is in the top of the zone, but that's a called ball.
That one definitely was in the K zone for sure.
Just like the first pitch of this at bat, But Umpire lets it go.
So letters batting 2 54 on the year.
And that is a fastball right down the heart of the plate and he swings and Mrs and the Count is full of second full count in a row here from Dylan sees that's not good on the pitch count as he's approaching 14 pitches on this next pitch.
And there you see Hunter Dozier will taking his lead at first base in the payoff pitchers outs.
Oh, he brings him up and that one was outside of the plate.
He is not happy at all yelling about it.
That's a backwards K, and that definitely was ball four.
Not a doubt in my mind or anyone else's mind.
Certainly Jorge Celera's mind probably to baseball with off the plate.
Not a great day to start off for the home plate umpire.
I think that I was matching that earlier heat.
That's three pitches that he missed, called in my opinion anyways.
Two outs now Man on first are hearing steps in a curveball loops right over the center of the plate at 77 miles an hour.
Rhino Herron is to 46.
He's got one home run.
15 R B I's, though r B I not RV.
So on the count and sees looks the work out of this inning.
There's a slider and it's a called strike in the count goes, though, into you, however.
She did steal Yasmani.
Grandal missed the throw on the transfer.
And, as you could see, the pitch comes in.
He clearly sees it just drops the ball when he's transferring it out of the myth.
So now the Royals have a runner in scoring position.
Dozer Is that man as he got on with the 32 full count walk and he throws back to second.
Dozer is in there, sliding in safe two outs.
Count remains owing to she's working ahead in this counts.
If we get and there's a slider that runs in on, I'm almost hits him in the foot.
He does not go, says third base umpire, And that means the count will go to one into and there you see, Dylan sees Royals die out there.
Hopefully can get a first run run if you're a Royals fan.
The count seizes at 17 pitches on this inning, and there's a fastball that runs up and then almost hits him on the Evo Shield pad.
But it does not, and account ghosted to and to Dozer in a comfortable lead at second base.
Still was originally on first from a one out walked, stole the second. And there's a curveball.
Did Ugo? Yes, he did.
And that will be the end of the first inning and we'll see Brady Singer coming up.
University of Florida alum after the break here on SportsCastr.
And there you see the White Sox batting order.
Tim Anderson leads awful by you on Moncada and Liraz.
Monte Grandal and Jose Cabrera is batting fourth in the cleanup spot.
There's Brady Singer.
He's got six starts this season.
He's running three with a 5.
And the key to his game is an elevated fastball.
There, you can see on the graphic.
He's got 27 strikeouts on the year.
Not a great No, not a goal.
He adds a great number, but not a great number as he gives up. Seven Hunt.
He has given up seven home runs.
Young guys only 24 years old, relatively new to the major league baseball as he was in University of Florida a couple years ago.
And there's a first strike fastball for Brady Singer.
No hits for the Royals.
Does your got on on a one out walk, and that's all that happened there in that inning, as as the Royals advanced him the second on a steel but nothing else doing as Brady Singer delivers a 11 count and there's a ground ball to second ba*****t and he fires Teoh Ryan O Heron, and that will be the first out of the inning and Tim Anderson is retired.
Singer now will face Moncada.
Mon counter Lefty.
He takes a fastball.
That two seam fastball has a lot of cut that works inside on a writer body.
Ah, Browder righty batter and outside on a lefty batter, and there's another fastball, but that one.
We'll balance right in front of the catcher for a ball, and it is one and one with one out and Makana to 61 on the season.
And there is a two seam splitter, 89 miles an hour.
That one misses down in a way, and the count is in favor of you.
On Moncada, there's a fastball on the inside part of the plate.
Inman Connell lets that one go by for strike Two of this at bat here counts even Teoh into big shift.
Their Franco moves his way into what would be the second Ba*****ts position, and it's strike three, looking backwards K again off the plate, as the home plate umpire calls it.
And now Moncada is not happy.
So two players to different teams not happy about third strike calls looking.
And I agree with both of those players on that, especially when you get the opportunity to see the K zone.
But nonetheless, that's pretty singers first drug out of the day and two outs already.
Quickly, he's only at eight pitches as Yasmani Grandal steps in and he looks at a first pitch fastball that's outside for ball.
He's been to 41 on the year with 14 R B I, and there's another fastball.
But that one's down and in this time, and he lets that one by as well in the count.
Drops to two and o in favor of Monye.
There's a curveball for a strike.
Catches the bottom part of the zone, and it's two on one as catcher Yasmani Grandal has not taken a swing yet.
A fast moving picture, fast moving when he gets the ball back fast moving in his wind up.
And there's a fastball that Mrs Inside and it is three in one.
Like I mentioned before.
He's very fast paced as well as his wind up is kind of unorthodox.
Gets there quickly.
And there's a curveball chopped foul right of the first base line from Yasmani Grandal.
They see the replay from last night's game does money.
Grondahl hit a home run, and there is this time he fells it the opposite way towards third base and into the seats.
Well, no, actually not into the seats because the White Sox, in one of the few stadiums that actually have netting from foul pole to foul pole in order to help fan safety, and I am all for that.
But I do think there comes a time as he flies one into center field and center fielder.
What Mayor Field is there to get the third out for the bottom of the first Royals air due up in the top of the second year on SportsCastr Thank you all for who I've tuned into this broadcast today off.
Excuse me, the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox.

This of this game depends on how I feel, but yes, oh, no runs in this game so far as we moved to the bottom I in the top of the second, and it's the Royal second turn to get some runs on the board.
We welcome you back to guaranteed rate field as the Kansas City Royals get their second chance to get some runs across the plate here in the top of the second inning as there is no score from the South Side of Chicago as Maikel Franco is due up for the okay, Kansas City Royals Excuse May Dylan see still on the mound for the Chicago White Sox.
These are 19 pitches, and here we go top of the 2nd 1st innings in the books and don't seize delivers A curveball in that couch is the bottom, uh, outside part of the zone, and the count is owned. One.
There's another curveball right in the same exact place, but Franco swings of that one that time, and he misses over top of the baseball, and it is owing to in favor of cease and Franco calls Thanh and steps out to regroup.
And there's another curveball again.
But that one is well outside and Franco looks.
It looks that looks it back, and it's wanting to.
No one sees, delivers another off speed pitch that's four in a row.
That one misses the top and outside part of the zone, and the count evens up to into after you got ahead.
Owing to as Franca looks toe, get a piece of hitting that one's well outside.
That's a 98 mile an hour fastball.
Almost 100 hasn't touched 100 yet today.
Looks to do that.
And 32 full pay off pitch Bronco grounds that one first baseman fields it fires to cease at first, and that is the first out.
The first baseman for the White Sox is Jose Abreu.
You sorry that I did not.
I haven't known.
A couple of these players of our, uh, don't really watch these teams kind of off the radar teams.
I should know it was a brave, So I apologize for that one out, though that's his third full count of the game.
Is Dylan CC like to limit that as is that full counts.
Drive up your pitch count now as outscored in steps in a lefty for Kansas City.
And there's a curveball that hits off something and goes straight shooting into the net.
Out scoring only Baton, 1 96 on this season with six r B I hoping to string another hit here and boost at batting average up to over 200 but he'll take a fastball up in the zone for ball, too.
There's a fastball rent, and that one is gone.
Solo shots for Alex Gordon, his fourth home run this season.
Just took that inside pitch right over the right field wool, and that one got out in a hurry.
Projected home run distance.
And with that, the Royals take a one.
Nothing lead over the Chicago White Sox.
That's just a fastball up in.
And that's a recipe for disaster, and that one's out of there in a hurry.
Line drive. Home run.
And it is one nothing.
Kansas City, here in Chicago.
No doubt about it.
That is a feel good hit there for a struggling Alex Gordon.
No, Alberto Mondesi steps in for Kansas City and not is fouled back into the back screen, and it is one and one.
The count he's been to a five, no heart runs.
Hopefully, he could make it a back to back home run opportunity.
Get his first home run of the year off of a back to back home run, and that's a fastball, and it's popped and into the seats.
Wanted to the count.
Cease looks to bounce back.
Recording out here, preferably okay, And that one's chop cease to flex it gets it and fires to Jose Bright you.
And that will be the second out.
Two outs top of the second ceases already at 32 pitches and hasn't even made it through two innings yet as Nicky Lopez steps in second baseman for the Kansas City Royals.
Use another lefty.
That's the third lefty in a row for the Royals, and that's a fastball that's high up in the zone.
And that is a ball want Dylan sees has seen three full counts already.
Day wants to eliminate that, and there's a fastball on the inside part of the plate, and he looks at him for strike one.
And, like I was imagining before everybody that ceases faced.
He's gotten high pitch counts.
And when you get high pitch counts, you're obviously going to jack up your pitch count.
And that's just the name of the game in baseball as there's a curveball check swing.
Third base up says he does go and the count goes to one into you on low pitch.
He's bad in 2 12 on the year, looking to string together, two out, hit and turn this over to memories.
That one's a curveball in the dirt and that is to and to do you into the count here.
Lopez at the plate, looking to get some action down.
And that's a strike three swinging on a fastball upstairs, and that wraps up the top of the second inning off oven Alex Gordon home run that gives the Kansas City Royals around the one to nothing lead over the White Sox here in Chicago.
Let's get you some scores around the league.
Nothing has changed.
Except for the Phillies and Braves.
The Phillies are now four to nothing on the Braves in the bottom of the fifth with one out.
That one's in Philadelphia this one's one nothing.
Kansas City, off of ****ogue, scored a home run solo shot.
It was a line drive home run that got out of the park in a hurry.
Yeah, cease left of fastball up and in.
And someone like Alex scoring with quick hands can definitely take that and pull that for a home run, for sure.
And we welcome you back, and it is now the bottom of this second inning White Sox look to answer to that one run home run, but Brady Singer fires a fastball, and, uh, I don't even know who's up for. The White Sox.
Looks at it for Strike one, and the count is Oh, and one, and that one's grounded to shortstop.
Mondo See Fires, Teoh Heron.
And that is one out for the Kansas City Royals as Sparty singers only at 17 pitches.
You go as a pitcher is I like to say that's a lot 15 pitches an inning and he's at the finish last inning with exactly 15 pitches as a Loi Jiminez steps in for the White Sox.
3 22 on the year, Great batting average Singer is still working out of the wind ups has not seen the stretch.
And those a curveball for called Strike one.
The key to singer War from what I've seen today is he's gone ahead and counts, and that's always an advantage as a pitcher.
And there's a fastball right down the heart of a plate for Strike two, as Jiminez lets that one go by as well.
And it is owing to for Brady Singer looking to get another strikeout that one's outside.
Just misses, and it's now wanted.
And as Jiminez, I don't even know what to say.
He's batting 3 41 on the air.
My God, Imagine nearly.
Oh, they're Browning averages different, apparently, from the broadcast that one shot up the middle.
However, second baseman's there.
He fields it cleanly for the second out of the inning.
That's his second ground ball out today.
I keep forgetting that years.
Nicky Lopez, Like I said, I hardly know any Royals players or White Sox players.
I'm just doing this one cause it's on FS one not going to do the whole game for sure.
45 there is a fastball as and car Sione lets it go back into the but the midst of Ville Aurea and I was up in in and that is bow on.
Almost got a piece of in Carson A and cars and car Nasty own.
Fortunately for all of the people involved with this game, cause that could have been that but pretty singer Curveball That one's grounded to third baseman Franco Franco fires in O Hare in, catches it for the third out, and we go to the top of third.
No runs, no hits for the White Sox.
