    导出博客文章CHICAGO -- While the Chicago White Sox face a near impossible task to reach the
    postseason, they have made life miserable this week for division rivals with
    better odds.Carlos Rodon struck out a season-high nine over six innings, Adam
    Eaton doubled twice and scored two runs and the White Sox downed Kansas City 7-2
    on Friday night.The Royals lost for the sixth time in nine games and remained
    four games out of the second AL wild card. Detroit beat Baltimore to pull even
    with the Orioles for the final postseason berth.The White Sox took two of three
    against the Tigers earlier this week.When you can beat division rivals and good,
    quality teams, it kind of shows the quality of team that we have here that we
    really havent produced on a consistent basis, Eaton said. I know Ive been
    preaching consistency, but its truly what has lacked within our game.Rodon (7-8)
    ran into trouble in the sixth when he loaded the bases. Manager Robin Ventura
    kept him in, and he fanned Paulo Orlando on his 116th pitch for the third out
    and move to 5-0 in his last seven starts.Its huge. It helps me build my
    confidence as well, Rodon said. Im glad he trusts in me to get that last guy
    out. No matter how many pitches Im at, I always want to get that last out.Eaton
    doubled to lead off the first and fifth innings off Yordano Ventura (10-10) and
    scored each time on Melky Cabrera RBI. Tyler Saladino had three hits and drove
    in two runs in Chicagos third straight win.Kendrys Morales had a two-run single
    in the first inning for Kansas City. Lorenzo Cain started for the first time
    since Aug. 30 following a wrist injury and reached base three times with a
    single and two walks despite pain when he squeezes the bat.That shows his value,
    manager Ned Yost said. He finds a way to produce.The 23-year-old Rodon struggled
    early this season and went on the disabled list after he sprained his left wrist
    slipping on the dugout steps. But the lefty has been sharp since returning.He
    was great, Ventura said. Innings where they started to get guys on and it got a
    little dicey, hes finding a way to reach and find something else, another
    level.In his career-high 24th start, Rodon allowed two runs -- one earned -- and
    six hits while lowering his ERA to 1.85 ERA in his past seven outings, all
    quality starts.Jose Abreu and Justin Morneau added RBI singles as Chicago had 13
    hits.Ventura allowed five runs -- four earned -- and 10 hits over seven innings
    in taking his first loss in seven starts.Dan Jennings got five outs and Tommy
    Kahnle worked the ninth for the White Sox, who have won five of seven. They
    remain four games under .500, though, and eight games out of the final playoff
    spot.When you take three games from division rivals that are atop the division,
    its fun to do, Eaton said. It should instill confidence in us.TRAINERS
    ROOMRoyals: C Salvador Perez (bruised right wrist) sat out a second straight
    game. He still feels it a little bit when he swings, Yost said. Well shoot for
    tomorrow. ... LHP Matt Strahm left to attend his grandfathers funeral and was
    expected back Saturday.White Sox: Struggling RHP James Shields was cleared to
    start Saturday after complaining of a sore back in his last outing. Shields
    hasnt missed a start since 2007. I just want to post every five days and throw
    200 innings, Shields said. Im obviously not going to get (200 innings) this year
    for the first time in nine seasons, which is disappointing.HOT SOXAbreu went 2
    for 4 to improve to 22 for 50 (.440) with 16 RBI in his past 11 games. Saladino
    is 6 for 8 in the past two games.TIRED SORIAYost said hes been overusing
    struggling reliever Joakim Soria and planned to limit his appearances. Soria has
    six blown saves and eight losses.UP NEXTShields (5-17, 6.07 ERA) will face
    Royals RHP Edinson Volquez (10-10, 5.02) on Saturday night.
