Victory Pushes White Sox Record to 88-61
The Chicago White Sox picked up a win at Kauffman Stadium, knocking off the Kansas City Royals, 5-2. Starting pitcher Chris Sale was an essential part of his team's success. Chicago is now 88-61, 3½ games up in the American League Central.

It could have been a different outcome for Chicago, had it not been for Nobuhisa Koyama, the slugging left fielder . Koyama contributed a 2-run double in the top of the fourth inning to put Chicago up, 2-0.

"Nice to see our side come away with the win," Koyama said after the game.
