Royals Vs. White Sox Final Score: South Siders Fall In Series Rubber Match

Paul Konerko and Alex Rios weren't in the Chicago White Sox's lineup on Wednesday night, though it seems unlikely manager Robin Ventura thought his team would struggled as much as they did against Kansas Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie. Guthrie had his best outing of the season in leading the Royals to a 2-1 victory in the series rubber match at U.S. Cellular Field. Guthrie allowed only five hits and no runs while striking out six over eight innings. The White Sox fall to 60-50, while Kansas City improves to 47-63.

White Sox starter Jose Quintana allowed just five hits and two earned runs over seven innings, but it wasn't enough. The Royals received solo homers from Mike Moustakas in the second inning and Salvador Perez in the fourth inning to win.
