SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Gil Meche pitched three innings Monday before leaving the Kansas City Royals' 9-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox with a sore right shoulder.
Meche allowed three runs and four hits, struck out one and walked one. He threw 31 of his 56 pitches for strikes.
Jake Peavy was hit hard during his three innings for the White Sox, yielding seven runs and 10 hits.
Bobby Jenks followed Peavy and struck out one in a perfect inning. It was the closer's first spring game since March 12 because of a calf injury.
