Royals ride momentum into series finale with White Sox

According to STATS
According to STATS

Kansas City Royals at Chicago White Sox

  1. The White Sox swept the Royals when they last faced them at Guaranteed Rate field in April of this season, outscoring Kansas City 27-8 over the three games; the sweep was Chicago's first versus Kansas City at home since a three-game sweep in July 2010. The Royals swept the White Sox when they last met, from July 21-23 in Kansas City.
  2. The Royals lost all four of their games versus the Cardinals earlier this week and are now 3-10 since July 29. Kansas City was in the second AL Wild Card spot entering July 29 (2.5 games ahead of the Rays, the next closest team), but is now 1.0 games back of the Rays and Mariners (who are tied) for that second AL Wild Card.
  3. The White Sox beat the Astros, 3-2, in 11 innings on Thursday to finish off the sweep of Houston, just Chicago's second sweep this season (also April 24-26 versus the Royals) and just the second time the Astros have been swept this year (also May 19-21 versus the Indians).
  4. Since June 10 of last season, Jose Abreu is batting .362 versus the Royals with 13 multi-hit games. His 13 multi-hit games versus Kansas City are tied for the most multi-hit games by any player versus any AL club over that span (also Abreu versus the Tigers).
  5. Danny Duffy is 0-2 with an 11.17 ERA in two starts against the White Sox this season, allowing exactly six runs in each start. The Royals lost each of Duffy's first five starts versus AL Central division rivals this season (including his two starts against the White Sox), but have won his two starts versus AL Central teams since the break.
  6. Reynaldo Lopez is making his first MLB appearance of the season after starting 22 games in the minors this year. Over his last eight minor league starts before his call-up (June 29 and since), Lopez posted a 2.70 ERA and .192 opponent batting average. Lopez made his first 11 career MLB appearances last season for Washington (six starts).

CHICAGO -- The Kansas City Royals will try to climb back above .500 when they play the Chicago White Sox in the rubber match of a three-game set Sunday afternoon.

Kansas City (58-58) is feeling better after a comeback win Saturday night that snapped a five-game losing streak. Now, the Royals hope to start a run as they remain fixated on a possible playoff berth.

"We know how good we can be, and we know we weren't playing good baseball (up until Saturday)," Royals veteran third baseman Mike Moustakas said. "We've just got to carry this momentum into (Sunday) and take it for the rest of this road trip -- and get back home in front of the fans and keep this thing rolling."

Meanwhile, Chicago (45-69) will try to claim a series victory one day after its four-game win streak came to an end. White Sox pitchers have posted four straight quality starts, which is the longest streak of the season.

Royals left-hander Jason Vargas (13-6 3.40 ERA) made his first All-Star appearance this year but has struggled since. He is 1-3 with a 6.94 ERA in five starts since the break. He needs one more victory to match his career high of 14, which he set in 2012 with the Seattle Mariners.

In 12 career appearances (11 starts) against the White Sox, Vargas is 2-3 with a 5.92 ERA. He has faced Chicago three times this season, going 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA. He allowed two runs in five innings in his last matchup July 22.

For the White Sox, left-hander Derek Holland (6-11, 5.25 ERA) is eyeing back-to-back victories after limiting the Houston Astros to three runs in 5 2/3 innings in his last outing.

In 10 career appearances (eight starts) against the Royals, Holland is 3-1 with a 3.91 ERA. He already has faced Kansas City twice this season, posting a 1-1 record with a 3.18 ERA.

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer will try to maintain the success that he has enjoyed against Holland in his career. He is 6-for-15 with a home run, double and two RBIs. Others have not fared as well against Holland, including Mike Moustakas (1-for-7) and Lorenzo Cain (2-for-9).

Royals outfielder Melky Cabrera carries an eight-game hitting streak into Sunday's game. Cabrera, who clubbed a go-ahead home run Saturday to sting his former teammates, has three home runs in 13 games with the Royals.

White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson is 4-for-8 against Vargas. Jose Abreu is 3-for-10 with an RBI and Avisail Garcia is 1-for-6.

White Sox rookie outfielder Nicky Delmonico has a nine-game hitting streak and has reached base safely in each of his first 11 games in the big leagues -- a franchise record.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria has liked what he has seen from his club during the past week.

"I'm more impressed with the way they're playing the game," Renteria said. "The way they're approaching at-bats, some of the defensive plays they're making, the things they're doing on the bases. If they can maintain that consistency, that's what gives you a chance for winning ballgames."
