Last night, Seth Lugo pitched seven excellent innings, Vinnie Pasquantino homered and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 2-0.

KC improves to 5-0 against Chicago already this season, and the Royals have allowed a major league-low 48 runs during their 11-6 start, while the White Sox have scored just 34 runs so far as a team, which is the lowest total in MLB.

Unfortunately for Royals fans the win didn’t come without some bad news as All-Star Catcher Salvador Perez missed that contest due to a left groin strain from an injury sustained during Sunday’s 2-1 loss to the Mets.

Fortunately however, Perez announced on Social media via his twitter account that he will return for Tuesday’s contest, telling Joel Goldberg that despite the strain he feels no pain, just light tightness 


More locally, Salina Post confirmed on Monday that Ellsworth head boy’s basketball coach Brett Rolfs had resigned.

Rolfs finished his two-year run with a 31-14 record, and a trip to the 3A state tournament this year


And finally, speaking of Ellsworth the Bearcats baseball team will be in Salina this evening to take on Sacred Heart, and we will be broadcasting both games 100% free with live audio and video on our Salina Regional Orthopedic and Sports Medicine games of the week
