The Royals are quickly losing their division lead. The White Sox set season-highs on Wednesday with 15 runs, 19 hits and six home runs in a 15-4 rout of Kansas City. Jose Valentin went deep three times for the White Sox, driving in five runs in the process. Paul Konerko hit a grand slam and had six RBI. The White Sox are now an AL-best 11-2 since the All-Star Game. The Royals began the second half with a seven-game lead over Chicago. That lead has now been trimmed to just two games.
