Royals Vs. White Sox: Kansas City Continues Series As Spoilers Against Chicago

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.
