MLB changes hit to an error in Guthrie's gem
ST. PETERSBURG -- It turns out that Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie's bid for a no-hitter carried into the eighth inning last Sunday against the White Sox. Technically, that is.

Major League Baseball, on an appeal by the Royals, on Wednesday overturned official scorer Del Black's hit call on Paul Konerko's ground ball with two outs in the seventh inning, instead charging shortstop Alcides Escobar with an error. Escobar fielded the ball in the hole, and his throw from the outfield grass bounced and first baseman Eric Hosmer couldn't scoop it up.

The White Sox, after two outs in the eighth inning, did get undisputed singles by Dayan Viciedo and Ray Olmedo, and Guthrie was taken out of the game. So now Guthrie is charged with just two hits instead of three.

MLB also reviewed two plays in Saturday's game against the White Sox. Hosmer was given a seventh-inning double on a play previously scored as an error on third baseman Kevin Youkilis. But a request to change Alex Gordon's single-and-error in the third inning to a double was denied.
