Royals Crumble in 9th to Fall to White Sox

Royals Crumble in 9th to Fall to White Sox”

The Royals now move to Cleveland to begin a 4 game series with the Indians tomorrow.

The Chicago White Sox scored 2 runs in the top of the 9th to defeat the Kansas City Royals 5-3 Wednesday afternoon. Lorenzo Cain also went 2 for 4 at the plate, while Brandon Moss contributed a base hit for KC.

The Akron native has backed the Indians in the past, attending some of their playoff and World Series games a year ago along with his Cavs teammates. Scott Alexander took the loss, falling to 4-4 this season. Skoglund yielded 13 runs in 4 2/3 innings over three starts in between, with two coming in June and the other August 27 - a 12-0 loss at Cleveland in which he permitted seven runs in 1 1/3 frames. Chicago's Lucas Giolito was ejected from his last start - his fourth of the season since being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte - and opposes rookie Eric Skoglund, who returns to the rotation after his first career relief appearance. He surrendered two earned runs on four hits with three strikeouts and no walks in five innings his last start, a 4-2 home win over the Orioles. Carlos Santana added a triple while Francisco Lindor went 2 for 4 with a double and Jose Ramirez went 1 for 3 with a double of his own. He gave up one earned run on seven hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over 6 1/3 innings in a 5-2 home win over the Twins. The Indians bullpen was near ideal down the stretch, giving up just one hit, culminating in Cody Allen's 27th save of the year. The Royals are 72-73 overall and 33-37 on the road.

The Royals are running out of time in the American League wild card chase. Cleveland scored three in the first versus Detroit to take control and extend the winning streak to 21.
