The fireworks start early: White Sox 9, Royals 1

Some 33,830 people came out to see baseball and a fireworks show afterwards. Unfortunately for the Royals, the fireworks show started in the top of the third inning: Jeremy Guthrie was knocked out of the game early and long reliever Bruce Chen replaced him. Two pitches later Chicago White Sox leftfielder Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run bomb and the Sox were up 7-0 before the Royals had made it all the way through their batting order for the first time.
