Teahen caps comeback in ninth

at Surprise, Ariz.
Monday, March 3

White Sox at the plate: Alexei Ramirez belted a bases-loaded triple, making him 6-for-13 this spring. Jermaine Dye and Brad Eldred each had an RBI double.

Royals at the plate: Tony Pena, answering manager Trey Hillman's call for small ball, bunted perfectly for a hit. Joey Gathright stole three bases, scored twice and batted in a run with an infield single. Damon Hollins' two-run home run followed a double by Mitch Maier, giving the Royals a 5-5 tie. Mark Teahen's single drove in the game-winning run in the ninth.

White Sox on the mound: Lefty John Danks opened with three innings and gave up two singles and an unearned run. Bobby Jenks surrendered three hits and two runs in one inning. Ex-Royal Mike MacDougal was nailed for Hollins' game-tying homer. Ehren Wasserman had a perfect inning.

Royals on the mound: Lefty starter John Bale's scoreless three innings were marred only by a hit batter. He struck out four, giving him seven K's in five innings. Jorge De La Rosa, in his first outing, gave up five hits including three doubles and a triple that produced five runs. Yasuhiko Yabuta and Joakim Soria each had a scoreless inning.

Cactus League records: Royals 2-3, White Sox 3-4.

Up next: The Royals travel to Tucson on Tuesday for a 2:05 p.m. CT game against the Colorado Rockies. Brett Tomko will start for the Royals; Ubaldo Jimenez for the Rockies.
