Royals 7, White Sox 5
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alex Gordon's three-run double in the first helped lift the Royals. In his major-league debut, White Sox lefty Erik Johnson retired only 14 of his 28 batters. His catcher, Tyler Flowers, who went 4-for-4 Thursday against the Twins, had hits in his first three at-bats. But the streak ended in the eighth when Norichika Aoki dropped his fly ball to right.
