Brandon Moss hit a grand Slam in the First inning and the Kansas City Royals held on for a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Tuesday afternoon.
Scott Alexander was able to work out of a first-and-third, no-out jam in the ninth by getting a strikeout, a popout and a groundout for his fourth career save.
The Royals and White Sox play again tomorrow afternoon.
The Royals have released the 2018 schedule. They open against the Chicago White Sox at home on a Thursday March 29th. The early start to the season is because Major League Baseball added four more off-days to the schedule.
