SURPRISE, Ariz. (CBS) — Matt Tomshaw started on the pitcher’s mound Wednesday as the White Sox took on a Kansas City Royals spilt squad.

Tomshaw has spent his entire nine-year career in the Minor Leagues, but he looked good on Wednesday.

He threw two shutout innings and allowed only one hit.

Meanwhile, Adam Engel blasted a three-run homer to cap a four-run second inning. But the Sox’ bullpen struggled as they went on to get edged by the Royals 7-6.

The Cubs played the other Royals split squad Wednesday.
