The Kansas City Royals hope to keep making life difficult for the teams trying to win the AL Central title, as they continue their role as a spoiler against the Chicago White Sox Saturday at U.S. Cellular Field.
Lorenzo Cain's two-run home run in the ninth inning Friday helped the Royals beat the White Sox, 7-5, keeping the AL Central leaders just one game ahead of the Tigers (who later lost on a walkoff in Anaheim).
Bruce Chen (10-11, 5.28 ERA) is expected to get the start for the Royals. The left-hander has been inconsistent as of late and is coming off of a loss to the Texas Rangers in his last start, during which he gave up six runs along with four home runs in six innings.
The White Sox counter with left-hander Chris Sale (15-6, 2.93 ERA). Sale has lost two games in a row, including his last start when he gave up four runs on six hits in six innings during a loss to Detroit.
The games is scheduled to start at 3:05 p.m. CT and will be televised on Fox.
