Punchless Royals Blanked By White Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – John Danks shut down Kansas City’s scuffling offense for eight innings, and the Chicago White Sox did just enough damage against Ervin Santana to squeak out a 2-0 victory over the Royals Tuesday night.

Danks (3-10) ended an eight start winless streak by scattering seven hits and a walk. That the veteran left hander’s finest start of the season came against the Royals wasn’t much of a surprise: Danks improved to 6-0 against them in 13 career starts.

Addison Reed worked around a leadoff single in the ninth for his 32nd save. It wrapped up the first shutout win for the last place White Sox since a 3-0 victory against the Los Angeles Angels on May 17.

Gordon Beckham homered off Santana (8-7) in the first inning for the only earned run.
