KC Headlines: Bombs Away, Mavs Escape, Longoria is Happy Shields is Gone


 

ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Four home runs (three solo, one nearly robbed by Alex Gordon) were enough to propel the White Sox past the Royals yesterday even though Chicago did their best to give the game away. Ervin Santana struck out eight while walking only one in six innings, but the five hits he allowed included three homers which was enough to make is otherwise fantastic debut a disappointment. Luke Hochevar also pitched. We won’t talk about that.

An overtime goal from Kellan Tochkin saved the Mavericks from falling into a 3-0 hole in the first round playoff series against the Rapid City Rush. The power-play goal was scored just under four minutes into overtime to give the Mavs a 3-2 victory.

In need of depth at linebacker, the Chiefs signed former Packers outside linebacker Frank Zombo.

K-State’s women lost in the WNIT semifinals.
