White Sox vs. Royals Score Update: Chicago Collapses Down The Stretch In 9-1 loss

Heading into the seventh inning of their series-finale with the Kansas City Royals, the Chicago White Sox held a 1-0 lead and looked to be in position to win the series. However, the bullpen allowed eight earned runs in 2.1 innings, as the White Sox fell 9-1.

Philip Humber delivered a strong performance on the mound for Chicago, allowing only one earned run in 6.2 innings. Humber stroke out seven batters in the no decision. Unfortunately, Humber's strong performance went to waste, as the bullpen struggled to get outs. Addison Reed really struggled, allowing six earned runs in just a 1/3 of an inning. Reed walked three batters and allowed two hits during his time on the mound.

The White Sox also struggled offensively, with Paul Konerko driving in the lone run of the game in the loss. Eduardo Escobar saw the ball well at the plate, hitting 2/4.
