CHICAGO (AP) - Zack Greinke pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning and the Kansas City bullpen was perfect Wednesday night, giving the Royals a 2-0 win over the Chicago White Sox.
Greinke (1-0) struck out seven and walked three. Relievers Juan Cruz and Joakim Soria retired all nine batters to preserve the Royals' first victory of the season.
In Tuesday's opener, Chicago rallied to win when Jim Thome hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning off reliever Kyle Farnsworth.
