Fresh off a sweep of the Twins and makeup win against the Tigers, the White Sox will look to get closer to a division title when they travel to Kansas City to take on the Royals.

The White Sox hold a three-game lead in the division after Monday's win over Detroit. The Royals are third in the division, but 14 games back of Chicago. However, Kansas City has won 10 of 15 meetings this season, including seven of the last nine.

The White Sox will send Gavin Floyd to the mound. Floyd is 9-10 with a 4.59 ERA on the season. He hasn't made it into the sixth inning in any of his last three starts, but pitched 7 2/3 scoreless in his only start against Kansas City this year.

The Royals will send Luke Hochevar to the mound.

The game begins at 8:10 ET and will be CSN+, AM 670 and FM 97.5.
