White Sox beat Royals to take weekend set

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) – Conor Gillaspie hit the go-ahead two-run
single in a five-run sixth inning which propelled the Chicago White Sox over
Kansas City by a 5-3 count on Sunday.

Adam LaRoche and Tyler Flowers also knocked in runs during the deciding frame
for the White Sox, who swept the brief set on Sunday thanks to a 3-2 victory
in the completion of Friday’s suspended contest to win this rain-shortened
three-game series.

John Danks (1-2) lasted six full frames and allowed three runs on five hits
while striking out eight. David Robertson closed things out on a scoreless
ninth for his third save.

Alex Gordon clubbed a two-run homer and Mike Moustakas drove in the other run
for the Royals, who had won a brawl-marred, 3-2 decision in Thursday’s 13-
inning opener.

Edinson Volquez (2-2) allowed five runs — one earned — on five hits across 5
2/3 innings. He struck out six and walked two.
