White Sox win again, beat Royals 6-3
(CHICAGO) - Some of the prized players in the Chicago White Sox's from-the-bottom-up rebuilding effort are starting to show why they're so highly regarded. Tim Anderson hit a two run homer to cap a four-run, seventh-inning rally, Reynaldo Lopez pitched six strong innings in his White Sox debut and Chicago won its fourth straight, 6-3 over the sliding Kansas City Royals on Friday night. Adam Engel's second triple of the game drove in the tiebreaking run in the seventh. Yolmer Sanchez had two RBI and Kevan Smith doubled in a run as the AL-worst White Sox kept rolling following a three-game sweep of league-leading Houston. Mike Moustakas belted a pair of deep solo shots to give him 34 homers, but the Royals lost their fifth straight and 10th in 12. Lopez, a 23 year old right-hander, permitted four hits and struck out six after being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte earlier in the day. Tyler Clippard got the final two outs for third save in eight chances as Kansas City scored its third run on wild pitch. The Royals slipped back below .500 at 57-58 and are fading in the race for second AL wild-card.
