By the Numbers Matt Davidson leads another home run barrage in KC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Chicago White Sox acting manager Joe McEwing had Trayce Thompson in the on-deck circle to hit for Daniel Palka in the seventh inning against Kansas City lefty Eric Stout.

Whit Merrifield singled home Alcides Escobar, who was hit by a pitch to leadoff the eighth inning, with the go-ahead run off Bruce Rondon (1-1).

Leury Garcia (second-inning triple, 11th-inning single) and Adam Engel (second-inning safety squeeze, fourth-inning triple) had two RBIs apiece for the White Sox.

Matt Davidson, who has seven home runs against the Royals this season, hit a double and two singles. "It's not necessarily a hitter's park, but it's gone pretty well so far".

After three so-so starts in the regular season, Skoglund, a left-hander, put together his best game in the Major Leagues, holding the White Sox to two hits over a career-high seven innings in the Royals' 5-2 win over the White Sox in Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday night. They have blasted 12 home runs and scored 24 runs. Over 20 innings of work this year, Giolito has 19 walks with just nine strikeouts.

"I don't look at our records and thank God".

"When things go south, they don't quit". I think it's a good first start.

Peter King, R-N.Y., told CNN . "My understanding going into this is that I serve at the prerogative of the speaker". Conroy, the 60th Chaplain of the House of Representatives", the letter, which was obtained by CNN, states.

They Royals just lost a pair of games to the Brewers at home and they haven't won back-to-back games this season. Duffy, however, is 0-3 with a 5.26 ERA and the Royals have failed to win any of his five starts.

This was supposed to be a much better season for the Chicago White Sox than they have had the past few years, but so far it has been a frightful start for them.

Chicago's pitching staff allowed 6.0 runs per game and its starters own a 5.96 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 5.56 K/9. He was 1-5 with a 4.60 ERA in sunlight starts in 2017.

The Over is 4-1-1 in Duffy's last six starts vs. The Whitsox have really struggled to score for most of the year, but they did score 18 runs in the first two meetings this year and the Royals have allowed 5.80 rpg here at home, plus they have the worst pen in the league, which was a 7.15 ERA, plus we note that Danny Duffy has a 5.26 ERA on the year.

White Sox: LF Nicky Delmonico returned to the lineup after missing the previous two games with a stiff neck.

Royals RHP Clay Buchholz allowed one earned run on four hits over five innings in a no-decision in a start for Triple-A Omaha at Colorado Springs.
