The first-place Tigers led the Royals by 1 1/2 Antworten

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Lorenzo Cain hit a three-run homer, Nori Aoki kept up his tear at the plate and the Kansas City Royals roughed up Chicago White Sox ace Chris Sale in a 6-2 victory Wednesday night that kept the pressure on Detroit in the AL Central. The first-place Tigers led the Royals by 1 1/2 games at the start of the night. Alcides Escobar also homered for a Royals offence that had been scuffling for weeks, and Aoki went 3 for 4 to finish with 11 hits in the series. Yordano Ventura (13-10) allowed three hits and two walks over seven innings, the lone run off him coming on a sacrifice fly. Meanwhile, Sale (12-4) was cuffed for a season-high five earned runs on nine hits over five innings. It was arguably the three-time All-Stars worst start since Aug. 23, 2013, when he gave up eight runs over seven innings in a loss to the Rangers. The White Sox loaded the bases with nobody out in the third inning, and Adam Eaton staked them to a lead with his sacrifice fly. But Ventura calmly struck out the next two batters to get out of trouble, and then kept Chicago guessing with a blazing fastball all night. It didnt take Kansas City long to take the lead for good. In the bottom of the third, Escobar and Aoki hit back-to-back singles before Cain sent a pitch over the left-field wall. The three-run homer was the first allowed by Sale on a 0-2 count in his career -- 164 appearances and nearly 670 batters over parts of five seasons. Escobar added his solo shot with two outs in the fourth. His third homer of the season and first since May 11 landed in almost the exact same spot as Cains home run. Aoki doubled in the first inning, singled in the third and fourth and walked in the sixth, earning a standing ovation. His 11 hits against the White Sox broke the Royals record for a three-game series that had been shared by George Brett (1982) and Willie Wilson (1980). It was also the first time a Kansas City player had three hits in three straight games since Mike Sweeney accomplished the feat from July 8-10, 2005, according to STATS. TRAINERS ROOM White Sox: DH-1B Paul Konerko, out since breaking his left hand on Sept. 2, will likely return this weekend in Tampa Bay. "Give him a couple of at-bats and if hes up for it he can probably DH one of those games and see how it feels," manager Robin Ventura said. Royals: INF Christian Colon (broken middle finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Sept. 7. There was no word on whether the Royals are adding another player to the roster.

After seven wins in a row, they have to do it one more time to get into the playoffs.BALTIMORE -- During a season in which he languished on the disabled list and jockeyed between the major leagues and minors for the good of the team, Miguel Gonzalez finally had his signature moment. Not just for the year, but for his career. Gonzalez pitched a four-hitter for his first complete game, and the Baltimore Orioles hit three home runs off Dylan Axelrod in a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night. Gonzalez (8-7) had a season-high eight strikeouts, walked one and allowed only one hit through the first seven innings -- a line drive single to Ryan Ludwick in the fifth. The Reds added two singles in the eighth before leaving the bases loaded, and Jay Bruce singled with two outs in the ninth. Gonzalez then retired Ludwick on a grounder to complete the shutout. "Its an awesome feeling," the right-hander said. David Lough and Jonathan Schoop hit solo shots before Chris Davis connected with a man on in the fourth to make it 4-0. That was more than enough offence for Gonzalez, who has given up four runs over his last 28 1-3 innings. In his previous 64 major league starts, Gonzalez pitched eight innings on four occasions. This time, he used 117 pitches to go the distance. "When you have not too many pitches going out to the seventh, eighth inning I think thats what helps," Gonzalez said. Gonzalez missed 16 days in June with a strained oblique and twice was optioned to the minors because the Orioles needed roster room. Through it all, he never complained -- a trait that endeared him to manager Buck Showalter. Thats one reason why Showalter stuck with Gonzalez in the ninth inning after his pitch count soared past 100. "I dont want to say he deserves it, but Miggy is such a team guy," Showalter said. "Hes such a professional, and that was a professional outing." Every time Showalter called Gonzalez into his office to tell him about a pending trip to the minors, the manager expressed appreciation for the sacrifice and promised a rapid return. "Theres a real trust there," Showalter said. "He knows we like him and knows were going to try to keep him in the best position to do good things for our team and do good things for his career.dddddddddddd." The victory was the eighth in 10 games for the AL East-leading Orioles during a homestand that concludes Thursday night, when Baltimore will attempt to complete a three-game sweep of the sinking Reds. Making his third start of the season, Axelrod (1-1) gave up four runs and five hits in six innings. "He made a couple mistakes and they got hit out of the ballpark," manager Bryan Price lamented. "I thought he competed well. Unfortunately, we didnt do anything offensively at all to give him any support. Thats been an underlying theme to our second half." Cincinnati has lost 15 of 21 and is 6-13 in interleague play, 1-8 on the road. The Reds are 15-29 since the All-Star break. Price has seen so many losses during a recently, hes run out of ways to explain it. "Were in the game hitting .219 as a club in the second half," he said. "Thats legendary stuff. I dont even know what to tell you guys, to be honest with you." Axelrod retired the first eight batters he faced before Schoop hit his 14th homer, the second in two nights. Lough led off the fourth with his first home run since June 7, Nelson Cruz doubled and Davis hit an opposite-field drive to left. Davis has 25 home runs and 71 RBIs this season, decent numbers except when compared his totals last year: 53 homers and 138 RBIs. Schoop added a two-run double in the seventh off Carlos Contreras, who walked the first two batters he faced. TRAINERS ROOM Reds: SS Zach Cozart will likely be sidelined until Friday with a sore right wrist. "Hes going to need a couple of days of letting it be," Price said. Orioles: SS J.J. Hardy returned after missing Tuesdays game with back spasms. 1B Steve Pearce remained sidelined with an abdominal strain. UP NEXT Reds: RH Mike Leake (10-11) makes his first career appearance against the Orioles in the series finale Thursday night. Orioles: RH Chris Tillman (11-5) seeks his 17th consecutive start of allowing three earned runs or fewer. Hes got a 2.90 ERA at home. ' ' '
