    Royals to defend their World Series championship, but it is getting close.The
    Royals were not just swept in a four-game series by the Oakland Athletics, who
    are in last place in the American League West, but were embarrassed. They fell
    14-5 Thursday and did not score a run until the ninth inning.They were outscored
    43-12, the most runs they have allowed in a four-game series in Royals history.
    The previous high was 41 by the New York Yankees in 1998 and Minnesota Twins in
    2006.Its been tough, said Christian Colon, who hit a three-run homer with two
    out in the ninth for his first career home run. Were not used to this, so its
    hard. Its hard to really enjoy this because you play to win the game. Thats what
    matters the most at the end of the day.The Royals chances to get back into
    postseason are rapidly fading with 16 games left.The Royals, who have lost eight
    of their past nine Kauffman Stadium games, continue this eight-game homestand
    with four games against the Chicago White Sox.The White Sox are coming off a 2-1
    victory over the Cleveland Indians, who are running away with the American
    League Central. Jose Abreu homered for the White Sox, while Carlos Sanchez had a
    walk-off RBI-single.He (Abreu) started out a bit slow but when you look at the
    end of the year hes probably going to have numbers there as impressive as
    anybody in the league, White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. If he can get a few
    more homers and everything else, its historic stuff hes chasing (30 HR, 100
    RBI).The White Sox will start All-Star left-hander Chris Sale in the series
    opener Friday. Sale, who leads the American League with a 3.03 ERA and five
    complete-games, lost 2-0 to the Royals on Sunday in Chicago.Sale is among the AL
    pitching leaders with 205 strikeouts, 15 victories, 201 2/3 innings, .220
    opponents batting average, 2.55 road ERA and 9.1 strikeouts per nine
    innings.Sale usually has little difficulty with left-handed hitters, but Royals
    first baseman Eric Hosmer is 18-for-45, .400, off him. Hosmer is the only
    left-handed hitter with three home runs off Sale.Royals shortstop Alcides
    Escobar has a .354 average, 23-for-65, with one home run, off Sale. Royals
    designated hitter Kendrys Morales has only a .190 average in 21 at-bats off
    Sale, but two of his four hits are home runs.The Royals will start right-hander
    Ian Kennedy, who outdueled Sale Sunday, pitching six scoreless innings and
    allowing just one hit, a leadoff single to Adam Eaton, but worked around four
    walks, while striking out six.Kennedy is 5-0 with a 2.16 ERA, yielding 12 earned
    runs in 50 innings, since the beginning of August.Kennedy is 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA
    in three starts this season against the White Sox. He has a 2-1 record with a
    3.38 ERA in his career against the White Sox.It seems unlikely Royals outfielder
    Lorenzo Cain will appear in the series as he continues to nurse a sore left
    wrist. He has played in only game this month and could be out for the remainder
    of the season.
