Greg Holland finished for his 27th save in 29 chances. Alex Gordon drove a 2-2 pitch from Donnie Veal over the wall in center for his first homer since July 7th.
CHICAGO (AP) — Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain was out of the starting lineup for yesterday's game against the White Sox. Cain left the Royals' 1-0 victory at Chicago on Saturday night due to tightness in his left groin. The team said it was precautionary.
