Preview: White Sox at Royals

Chicago White Sox's Jose Abreu right hugs third base coach Nick Capra after hitting a triple for the cycle against the San Francisco Giants during the eighth inning of a baseball game in Chicago Saturday Sept. 9 2017

Yolmer Sanchez's double in the third scored Rymer Liriano, who began the inning with a single and stole second.

Gaviglio is making his second start since joining the Royals and settled for a no-decision in the first after allowing one run and four hits over five innings against Minnesota.

Kansas City designated hitter Brandon Moss was one of four hits for the Royals Tuesday afternoon.

The only knock against Abreu's game is his defense, which has probably improved somewhat with hard work. Try to ignore the.210 average and 45 RBIs for the year, though. The White Sox had won three in a row before Tuesday's 4-3 defeat at Kauffman Stadium where the team never recovered from a 4-0 hole in the first inning. The White Sox travel to Cincinnati July 2-4 for just the fifth time in franchise history and first since 2009. "I've kind of been prone to the deep ball a lot this year", said Covey, who allowed just one hit the rest of the way after giving up Moss' grand slam.

Moss finished with two hits and over the last three games and is 6 for 9 with three homers, a double and nine RBIs.

Moss has homered in three consecutive games, bringing his total to 21.

Volstad pitched for four teams in seven seasons but had not pitched in the major leagues since appearing in one games for Pittsburgh in 2015.

Covey said he felt good with the adjustment he made after the grand slam.

Following a three-game series in Toronto from April 2-4, the White Sox celebrate their home opener at Guaranteed Rate Field on Thursday, April 5 vs. Detroit. He and pitching coach Don Cooper talked about the importance of getting ahead early on the bench and Covey saw the impact.

While players like Yoan Moncada and Lucas Giolito have reached the big leagues in 2017, there are still more prospects coming up through the system and 2018 might be the year we see some more. He did a really nice job. The logistics of the trip are weird because it has then going to down to Texas, to come back up to Ohio, and then back down to Texas again.
