White Sox-Royals Preview

(AP) -- When he faced the Kansas City Royals last weekend, Carlos Rodon outpitched Yordano Ventura to salvage a victory in the finale of the Chicago White Sox's three-game home series.

Now he'll try to get the best of the Royals on the road and help the White Sox avoid a season-high fifth straight defeat Saturday against surging Kansas City.

Rodon (2-4, 4.47 ERA) had his plus-slider working for Chicago (27-22) on Sunday when he earned his first victory since April 13. He allowed two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a 3-2 win after Kansas City had opened the series with 4-1 and 2-1 victories.
