White Sox slip past Royals 6-5

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie each hit two-run homers and the Chicago White Sox earned a 6-5 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.

After the game, the Chicago White Sox announced they had fired hitting coach Jeff Manto.

Marcus Semien and Jordan Danks added solo homers for the White Sox, while Mike Moustakas, Billy Butler and Salvador Perez went deep for the Royals.

All 11 runs in the game came via the home run.

The White Sox (63-98) avoided a 100-loss season with one game remaining.

"Nobody wants that, the 100 losses," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said before the game. "But it's not gonna make me feel any better to have 99 instead of 100 going into next year."
