Royals fall to White Sox 3-2.


Alejandro De Aza drove in Jordan Danks with a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning, sending the Chicago White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.


Jesse Crain (2-1) got through a shaky eighth inning for the White Sox, putting a runner on third with one out and then leaving him there.


Addison Reed handled a perfect ninth for his 21st save.


Dayan Viciedo led off the ninth with a single off Aaron Crow (3-3), and Jeff Keppinger drew a walk to reach base for the fourth time.


Royals manager Ned Yost brought in closer Greg Holland, and he got pinch-hitter Gordon Beckham to fly out to center field.


That allowed Danks, who was pinch-running for Viciedo, to reach third base.


De Aza's hard-hit ball to right was just deep enough to allow Danks to slide home ahead of the throw.
