White Sox-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Kris Medlen has cashed in on his chance in the Kansas City Royals' starting rotation, while John Danks can't buy a win for the Chicago White Sox.

Kansas City looks to ride its red-hot offense to a sixth straight victory over the visiting White Sox in Friday night's series opener.

Medlen (3-0, 3.51 ERA) has filled in for the ineffective Jeremy Guthrie to pick up wins in his first two starts since 2013. He missed all of 2014 after undergoing surgery on his throwing elbow and returned to the big leagues this year to make seven appearances out of the Royals' bullpen.
