Royals Need Extra Frames to Get Past White Sox
Extra innings were needed to determine a winner at U.S. Cellular Field.

The Chicago (A) White Sox got a superb performance from pitcher Sid Finch. Still, it wasn't enough to beat Kansas City. The Royals won the game, 4-1. In spite of the loss, Finch was named the player of the game. He threw 7 innings of 3-hit ball. Kansas City reliever Yimi Garcia picked up the win, upping his record to 4-1. Carson Fulmer shouldered the loss.

The Royals got a big at-bat from designated hitter José Rivera. For the game, Rivera was 1-5 with a home run, while adding 3 RBI and scoring once. In the top of the 11th, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a 3-run home run. His 10th home run of the season gave Kansas City a 4-1 lead.

"It was a solid team effort and we'll try to keep this momentum going," Rivera told reporters after the game.

The Royals have now won 4 straight.
