That is the game, The Royals take the opening game of the series by a score of Royals 5 and White Sox 1. Jose Quintana had a good solid outing but the defense could just not back him up and give him the win that he so rightly deserves.
Chris Sale is in the office for the White Sox in the second game of the series.

Kansas City Royals right fielder David Lough continues to show why it was a good move for the Royal organization to release fan favorite Jeff Francoeur earlier this season. In a 1-0 game, White Sox outfielder Alex Rios was the tying run on third when Jeff Keppinger lined a for sure single to right; however, David Lough made an unbelievable diving catch for the out. Rios, who should...

Mike Moustakas reached over a railing in pursuit of a Nick Markakis foul ball at Kauffman Stadium on Thursday. The third baseman could have suffered a nasty bump on the noggin, if not for the helpful hands of a group of loyal Royals fans who caught him as he tumbled into the stands. Afterwards, there were sighs of relief and high-fives all around. Moustakas and Markakis...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In the end, George Brett knew he couldn't turn back time, he couldn't be 25 again, and he couldn't fall in love once more with the major-league lifestyle he once so cherished.
Brett stepped down from his interim position as the Royals hitting coach Thursday, a move that may have surprised some, but not those who know him or are close to him.

Here was Royals right-hander Wade Davis perhaps when he needed it most producing his best effort of the season Saturday in outdueling Chicago lefty Chris Sale in a 1-0 victory at U.S. Cellular Field.
Davis might have been pitching to hold his spot in the rotation after yielding 21 runs in 152/3 innings over his four previous starts. If so he responded magnificently.
