Smart Leads White Sox to Win
The Chicago (A) White Sox easily defeated the Kansas City Royals, 13-4, at U.S. Cellular Field, with left fielder Dave Smart a main contributor to the win. He was 4 for 5 with a home run, a double, and 2 singles. He scored 2 times and drove in 2 for Chicago (A). Jim Ashley, credited with the win, is now 4-0. He allowed no runs on 1 hit in 1.2 innings. Chicago (A) leads the American League Central Division by 5 games.

Tied up with the Royals in the bottom of the seventh inning, the White Sox got a boost from pinch hitter Dan DeCapel. With a runner on 1st, DeCapel saw a 1-2 splitter from Willie Anderson and hit a run-scoring double to break the stalemate and put Chicago (A) on top, 5-4.

"Anytime I can help the team, I feel good about it," said DeCapel.
