White Sox 5, Royals 1
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chris Sale gave up only four singles for the White Sox. In his four starts against the Royals last year, Chicago scored a combined four runs. But he won twice, including beating James Shields (Sunday's loser) 1-0. Sale allowed a runner past second only in the third, and that was because an error made it second and third with two outs. Tyler Flowers' two-run single capped Chicago's four-run ninth.
