Royals Vs. White Sox Game Recap: Royals Blank White Sox 3-0

After dropping the series opener, the Kansas City Royals snapped their two-game losing streak Wednesday night and beat the AL Central division leading Chicago White Sox, 3-0.

For much of the game, it was a pitching battle between White Sox ace Chris Sale and Royals starting pitcher Bruce Chen. While each southpaw held his own, it was the Royals' offense that was able to score first as the team scraped a run off Sale in the third inning. However, it didn't stop there for the Royals, as the team tacked on a pair of runs to chase the young pitcher during the seventh inning.

With two outs in the ninth inning, the White Sox gave the Royals a late scare when Alejandro De Aza doubled off of Greg Holland. The righty reliever was able to shut the door, though, retiring Kevin Youkilis for the final out.

Chen pitched 6 shutout innings, allowing five hits, three walks and striking out four. It was shortstop Alcides Escobar who led the charge offensively, going 3-for-3 with a walk while swiping his 30th stolen base of the year.
