Royals Vs. White Sox Final Score: Chicago Wins 5-4 Behind Chris Sale And The Longball

Chris Sale was a bit on the wild side early, but he found his control in the fourth inning to get through six innings for the White Sox. Dayan Viciedo hit a two out homerun in the bottom of the first, giving the White Sox five players who have hit twenty on the season. They are the only team in baseball to accomplish that feat.

Kansas City would tie the game in controversial fashion, as Lorenzo Cain was ruled safe at home despite replay showing that he may have been tagged out. The White Sox would retake the lead in the bottom of the third on an Alexei Ramirez double, and they'd add to that lead with a Tyler Flowers two run shot in the bottom of the fourth.

Paul Konerko would then put the Sox up by four when he led off the bottom of the sixth with the third homerun of the day for Chicago, and that would be enough to hold off the Royals three run rally in the final two innings. Chris Sale would get the win, his sixteenth of the season.

The two sides will meet again tomorrow at 1:10 p.m. CT with Jeremy Guthrie of the Royals scheduled to square off with Hector Santiago of the White Sox.
