White Sox Vs. Royals Final Score: Chicago Edged By Kansas City In 10 Innings, 2-1

The Chicago White Sox were once again bested by rival Kansas City on Sunday afternoon, as the visiting Royals scored a pair of 10th inning runs en route to a 2-1 victory.

Both teams failed to score a run until extra innings, on a day when as many as eight different Chicago pitchers were trotted out to the mound to throw a pitch. Starter Hector Santiago yielded a mere three hits over four innings of eight-strikeout ball, but gave way to the bullpen to begin the fifth inning after 93 pitches.

After allowing two RBI singles in the top half of the 10th inning to break the tie, Chicago mounted a slight comeback. Gordon Beckham hit an RBI double before Royals closer Greg Holland closed the door for the save. Now with a remarkable 10-1 record against the White Sox and Detroit Tigers in their last 11 games, the Royals will have a chance to do further damage to Chicago's cause on Tuesday, Sept. 18, when the teams open another three-game set.

Next up for Robin Ventura's White Sox is an all-too-significant four-game series with the Tigers at U.S. Cellular Field. Young lefty Jose Quintana will take the mound on Monday to kick off the series against Detroit's Rick Porcello.
