White Sox Game Notes For Saturday @ Kansas City
* The Royals are 11-5 versus AL Central opponents this season (3-1 vs. White Sox), but are three games under .500 against teams outside the division.
* The White Sox have posted a 2.42 ERA in 18 day games this year (10-8 record).
* Carlos Rodon faced Kansas City for the first time on Sunday, going 6.2 innings and getting the win in a 3-2 White Sox victory. He has been exceptional in his young career against teams within the division with 5-1 record.
* Eric Hosmer drove in the eventual game-winning run with a seventh-inning two-run single off Zach Duke last night. He had just one hit in his previous 22 at-bats against left-handers (.045), and for the season has not had much success versus southpaws.
