Royals Batter Floyd, White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jose Guillen hit a two-run homer and Luke Hochevar pitched six sharp innings as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Chicago White Sox 7-2 Tuesday night.

Mike Aviles had three hits, including a solo homer in the ninth, and Scott Podsednik had two hits, including an RBI triple against his former for the Royals, who had 16 hits.

Hochevar (3-1) allowed just one unearned run on three hits and pitched around four walks. He rebounded after he was tagged for nine runs and 11 hits over just 2 2-3 innings Thursday in an 11-1 loss at Tampa Bay.

A.J. Pierzynski homered for the White Sox, who had their home four-game winning streak snapped. Gavin Floyd (1-3) continued to struggle, allowing six runs and a career-high 13 hits in 6 1-3 innings.
