KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Once Reynaldo López went one pitch at a time, things worked out fine.
Following three consecutive poor outings, López pitched six effective innings against Kansas City on Sunday. And backed by a 471-foot homer from Eloy Jiménez, the Chicago White Sox defeated the Royals 5-2.
A day after Lucas Giolito shut down the Royals in a 2-0 victory, López (4-6) allowed one run and four hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out eight.
