Duffy looks to keep Royals in playoff hunt versus White Sox

CHICAGO -- As the Kansas City Royals keep their attention on the present, the Chicago White Sox have already started to turn their attention to next season.

The Royals' postseason hopes were already slim heading into this weekend's three-games series as Kansas City trailed the Minnesota by 3 1/2 games for the American League's second wild card spot.

But the Royals climb got even more difficult after Kansas City blew a four-run lead in a 7-6 loss to the Chicago White Sox that extended their deficit in the wild card chase to 4 1/2 games. Still manager Ned Yost said the Royals' chance to extend their season beyond next week has kept the team motivated.
