Royals 5, White Sox 4: Still winless in second half

Whit Merrifield’s big game helps send Sox to ninth straight loss As the old saying goes when playing the Kansas City Royals, “After Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain, Sal Perez and maybe Alex Gordon, you can’t let Whit Merrifield beat you.” The White Sox paid no heed to that time-tested adage. Merrifield hit a pair of homers — including a game-tying shot in the eighth -- and made a couple of fine defensive plays, which help set up a walk-off single by Brandon Moss. The Sox have now lost nine in a row after this latest sweep. The White Sox had a stirring comeback in mind....

Royals 7, White Sox 2: The bullpen of the immediate future

With two relievers out and more on the way, blown leads are going to happen frequently Dan Jennings and Anthony Swarzak threw four innings between them on Friday, so Rick Renteria wasn’t going to go to them first with four more innings to pick up in relief of Mike Pelfrey tonight. Instead, he went to David Holmberg after Pelfrey walked Lorenzo Cain to start the inning. Holmberg survived a lashed Eric Hosmer line drive to left center because Adam Engel made a brilliant sprinting, leaping catch in the gap to steal extra bases and an RBI. Then Salvador Perez homered to make it moot. And...
