Kansas City's Big Inning Beats White Sox
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Mitch Maier lined a two-run single in Kansas City's five-run seventh inning against Mark Buehrle, and the Royals made Ned Yost's managerial debut a rousing success with a 6-1 win over the Chicago White Sox Friday night.

The Royals looked like a new team, at least for one night, after Yost replaced Trey Hillman, getting good starting pitching, clutch hitting and a solid effort by the bullpen.

Yuniesky Betancourt homered and saved a run with a highlight-reel snag at shortstop, Gil Meche pitched six solid innings and Kansas City roughed up Buehrle (2-5) in the seventh to give Dusty Hughes (1-1) his first win in the majors.
