KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Adam Dunn hit a three run homer and the Chicago White Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 7-6 Tuesday night.
Andre Rienzo (4-0) limited the Royals to two runs and five hits over six innings. He struck out a career high eight.
The Royals’ record dropped to 5-15 against American League Central opponents.

Beckham has hit safely in 13 of his past 15 games, while Gillaspie increased his average to .347.
Royals rookie right hander Yordano Ventura (2-4) took the loss, allowing four runs and seven hits, including a Tyler Flowers home run, in six innings.
