|Royals Beat White Sox
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Billy Butler and Jose Guillen homered and Zack Greinke survived a five-run eighth inning Wednesday night, leading the Kansas City Royals past the Chicago White Sox 7-6.
Guillen also made a great catch of Mark Kotsay's leadoff drive in the ninth against Joakim Soria, banging into the right-field wall and falling to the ground but keeping the ball in his glove.
Greinke (4-8) won for the third time in four starts. He sailed into the eighth with a 7-1 lead, but a pinch-hit, bases-loaded triple by Brent Lillibridge keyed Chicago's comeback.
Soria relieved Greinke to begin the ninth and closed for his 20th save in 22 opportunities.
