White Sox ace Sale tagged by Royals in 6-2 loss

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chris Sale couldn't care less about the Royals being in a pennant race.

All he cared about Wednesday night was that Kansas City knocked him around while gaining ground on Detroit in the AL Central.

Lorenzo Cain hit a three-run homer, Nori Aoki kept up his tear at the plate and the Royals roughed up Sale in a 6-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Kansas City moved within a half-game of the Tigers, with the two opening a three-game set at Kauffman Stadium on Friday night.
