KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Glen Sparkman overcame some early struggles and settled down for his first career complete game and shutout.

Sparkman pitched a five-hitter, Whit Merrifield and Hunter Dozier both had three hits including a home run, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White sox 11-0 Tuesday night.

“My fastball command was shaky early on,” Sparkman said. “Couldn’t really locate it as much, and the curveball as well.”
