Road blues: Royals fall 5-2 to the White Sox, losing streak hits seven

The Royals suffered a 5-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox, losing for the seventh straight day and ending one of the quietest road trips in recent memory. The seven-game losing streak marked the club’s first since losing eight straight last June. The Royals hadn’t been swept by the White Sox in Chicago since 2010. And after four days in Texas and three here on the South Side, Kansas City will return home to Kauffman Stadium in last place, losers of 11 of 13 on the road.
